The Impact of Electronic Recordkeeping on HR Efficiency and Compliance

Human Resources are responsible for managing essential employee personnel records and company documents. It is crucial to implement electronic recordkeeping systems to ensure data security and compliance with government regulations. Errors in this process can lead to significant costs and legal consequences. Storing employment records electronically offers the advantage of reducing the need for physical storage space and is more cost-effective. Although electronic storage of personnel files is legal, employers must be knowledgeable about key legislation governing the electronic recordkeeping of HR records.
