Document management in a company is a process of recording, maintaining, filling and storing the documents regarding the business, employees (both past, present and future). Document flow in HR entails the need for document management norms, such as storage norms and information security systems. Unregulated document management has a negative impact on the development of the company, because it cannot guarantee the security of personal or customer data, as well as internal company statistics, company decisions or classified information.
Companies usually manage their document management with the help of electronic systems called DMS — Document Management Systems. Such systems are already included in the functionality of HRM-platforms, providing full functionality to regulate and protect the flow of information in accordance with international standards.
