About This Course:
Everyone knows that companies are "supposed" to have records retention programs, but how many companies actually follow their programs? What good is a policy that sits on a shelf with the documents it's supposed to govern?

Your organization's interests don't start, or end, with figuring out how long you're supposed to keep your tax returns. Learn how to implement a records management program that actually works.

The goal is not to tell you how long you should keep any specific document, but to help you explain to your stakeholders why they should care about keeping or destroying records in the first place.

Learn practical tips for building organizational support at every stage of your records management program: development, rollout and maintenance.
