Labels, we don’t need no stinking labels!
It’s not surprising that people don’t give much thought to labels in their documents. But you might, once you read this.
Labels can take different forms. One is a designation of the material. Labeling makes it clear what’s in it and who can read it. A label can mark content that’s considered “intellectual capital.”
Wouldn’t you want to label a document that contains information on an upcoming merger? Or on expected upcoming impacts to company earnings? Or about an unreleased patent? Or on employees’ salaries?

The labels presented above can help your business maintain structure and organization within your documents and files. This is key to running your business in a self-sufficient manner.
Labels clearly indicate the purpose of the documents, which in turn orients the user. Additionally, labeling your business documents allows you to create a “keyword search” structure within your document organization, whether the documents are physical copies or stored digitally.
