GO-TIME: Digitizing Personnel Records Saves Space, Improves Efficiency and Access

first_imgGO-TIME: Digitizing Personnel Records Saves Space, Improves Efficiency and Access August 11, 2016 Efficiency,  GO-TIME,  Press Release Harrisburg, PA — The Office of Administration recently completed a GO-TIME project with state agencies to convert active and former employee personnel records from paper to electronic files. This initiative will save over $30,000 per year in costs associated with the storage and transfer of physical files and enable more efficient and secure access to documents.“As one of the largest employers in Pennsylvania, there are many opportunities for state government to achieve savings and gain efficiencies in everyday activities such as managing personnel records,” said Secretary of Administration Sharon Minnich. “With this project, we have eliminated manual, paper-intensive processes and decades of physical storage.”The commonwealth has over 73,000 salaried employees and processes about 14,000 transfers, resignations, retirements and terminations in a typical year. With support from the Department of Revenue’s Bureau of Imaging and Document Management, the project converted over 1.2 million documents to electronic format.Previously, employee records were shipped from HR office to HR office over the course of an employee’s career before being transferred to the State Records Center for long-term storage. Over time, the space dedicated to personnel files at the records center will decrease as existing hard copy personnel files reach their retention period. Additionally, staff time spent searching for, preparing and mailing paper files can now be focused on other operational activities.Along with the conversion of active and former employee files, all new hire and rehire personnel files are now created electronically. Many new hire forms are completed through an online orientation system, creating an end-to-end paperless process. With personnel file records now integrated with the commonwealth’s the HR/payroll system, they can be accessed conveniently and securely by the employee, HR staff and other authorized personnel when needed.To learn more about how GO-TIME is working to modernize government operations in order to reduce costs and improve services, visit https://www.governor.pa.gov/go-time/.Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolfcenter_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more
