The Midland Hotel in Manchester is an iconic hotel and has been in the city of Manchester since 1903. The hotel is currently being transformed with a £14 million investment to meet the expectations and changing needs of their guests.
The hotel chose Shredco UK to come on site and destroy all their historical archive boxes. As a one off shredding service, we were able to schedule a next day visit to the city centre hotel.
Upon arrival to the hotel we collected and shredded the archive boxes. The boxes contained a lot of sensitive information about their customers, suppliers, and employees. The hotel wanted to ensure all the information was destroyed and recycled.
A proof of destruction was issued for the hotels records.
Since our initial visit, nearly a year ago, we have returned to the hotel every month to continue shredding all confidential documents. This is inline with GDPR guidelines to destroy any documents no longer needed for business use. If you do not have a legitimate reason to hold on to documents that contain sensitive information, you should destroy them. And this is what the hotel is doing.
The hotel now has a lockable container placed in the centre of the main admin office where documents are placed when no longer needed and have been processed by the team.
Only the hotel manager has a key, so no employee or visitor can access the documents once placed in to the locked container. This is much more secure than placing documents in to a standard paper bin next to a desk.
The hotel was very happy with the speed of the service and continued professionalism provided by Shredco UK. And would recommend Shredco UK’s services to any business thinking about shredding their archive documents.
