Portsmouth, NH - New universal guidelines have been released for businesses that are deemed essential or are re-opening their operations based on recommendations from the CDC, EEOC and OSHA to reduce the impact of COVID-19. Employers are now required to develop a process for screening all employees reporting for work, document the temperatures of employees, handle those with symptoms accordingly, as well as implement workplace cleaning and disinfection practices.
Each month Recordsforce has a company meeting where we get EVERYONE together. We used to do it in a conference room, but now we have it via a Zoom meeting. We review the company goals and our progress towards reaching them. We discuss any housekeeping issues and then we review some Flashlight Award nominations and announce the Flashlight Award Winners.
Recordsforce employs hourly part-time and entry-level staff in positions that do not require any higher education. In many industries, that’s an invitation to pay minimum wage, exclude benefits and paid holidays, and treat them as “expendable”…..even when it turns out those employees are now “essential.”
You know the drill, you’ve set the deadlines for your students and their families to submit their financial aid verification documentation months in advance. No one should be surprised by the dates for early decision and regular decision awards. Yet every year, 70% of your applications come in the week before the deadline, with up to half of those arriving in the 24 hours before the deadline. Why? It’s human nature.
Recordsforce is a company with a 20 year history of making processes better for our clients. Our vision as a company is to create a world where everyone is fulfilled by the work they do. The way we contribute to that vision is through the elimination of repetitive everyday tasks for our customers everywhere we can. This frees everyone from the repetitive and stressful tasks that add no value to your department.

I’m Katja Becker, owner and co-founder of Recordsforce. I’ve been in the document management business with my husband, Bill, since his first start-up called FisheNet which was founded in 1996. I’m currently the Controller at Recordsforce, but have also held positions ranging from Operations Manager, Document Scan Operator, Document Preparation Specialist and pretty much anything else that needed to get done in the early days!
Like many companies across the globe, Recordsforce is being asked to keep as many of its workers out of the office as possible due to the COVID-19 outbreak. We are currently sending 3 out of every 4 employees home to work, where they are able to perform their jobs remotely.
Now that you are working from home, surrounded by giant stacks of Charmin, you may be noticing that some of your work is pretty much the same, but other work is nearly impossible to do. Your digital documents and cloud-based work is uninterrupted by a work from home requirement. That makes sense. The cloud can be accessed anywhere you have the internet and cloud-based tools are built for portability.
Recordsforce is actively monitoring the spread of Coronavirus as a worldwide pandemic. As part of our disaster recovery and business continuity strategy, our Chief Information Officer, David Brown, is directing company personnel in the preparation of measures in the event COVID-19 triggers a Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity event and has an impact on Recordsforce operations.
