New Resource Provides Guidelines for Developing Effective Record Retention Schedule

Falls Church, Va. — Every organization has vital business records that it must store and keep up to date. Poor records management can decrease a company’s profits and expose it to compliance actions and legal liability. That’s why it’s absolutely essential for organizations to develop effective records management procedures.
