Electronic Record Management and Filing System Workshop in any entity has one main goal: systematic control of recorded information from original creation to ultimate disposition. A key element in achieving this goal is the establishment of efficient and effective procedures for filling and retrieving information.

Organizations with inconsistent or non-existent files management programs cannot find crucial information when they need it, waste time and money, and may even get into legal trouble because of their inability to document actions fully. Organizations that do not properly manage records cannot hope to control the flood of information with which they are confronted and organize it for effective decision making.

Who Should attend?

  • Administration Manager
  • Accounts Secretary
  • Personal Assistant (PA)  
  • Administrator
  • Administration Support
  • HR Personnel
  • Executive Assistant (EA)
  • Registry Clerk
