Document Warehouse at your serviceDocument Warehouse is an archiving firm that has grown from strength to strength after having begun operations in 2006.
Their core business is archiving, but they also provide various other services. “We’re really excited about moving into the digital space,” says chief executive Ino Kamona. “We take pride in how we store documents on behalf of our clients.”
When it comes to future goals, “we aim to remain relevant, dynamic and innovative. We can see the trend of paper phasing out, and the electronic office is on our doorstep. As a company, we need to continue to be in the right space to serve our clients, so that they too can evolve. Naturally, the way things work now is so much different from 20 years ago, that is why we continue to strive to keep up with the latest technologies and solutions for our clients.”
To keep clients happy, Document Warehouse currently employs around 70 staff members and thanks to them, the business is thriving.
Staff is the backbone of Document Warehouse’s success.
“We encourage innovation from all our staff, from the lowest level right to the top. For this, we have platforms where staff can share ideas. We also have information training sessions every week. We try to work as a team - even if it sounds a little like a cliché,” Kamona says.
Adding to this, chief business development officer Marilize Cohen says that Document Warehouse has implemented specific sessions where they focus on staff’s mental health. “This is a big issue these days, especially post-Covid. The world just kept on while we should stop to reflect on our employees’ wellbeing for them to do their work. We also focus on financial intelligence, to help staff work better with their money.”
She says that in 2017 they launched a project with the Môreson Special School which is located around the corner from the business. “Another project that we started last year, is the clean, paint, plant and repair project. This entails getting all hands on board in Hans-Dietrich Genscher Street [where their head office is located]. We went to fellow businesses and residents and asked them to clean the street in front of their offices and homes, plant trees and paint their shop faces and we really see the positive effects. The community is cleaner, businesses look better and the difference is amazing.”
In February this year, they also launched the Document Warehouse Brainery Academy. “This entails receiving six delegates every second week and we give them the opportunity to shadow our employees. It’s not training per se, but it does give unemployed persons an idea of our working environment.”
The company is also a staunch advocate of gender equality and encourages people with disabilities to join the workforce.
Besides the head office located in Windhoek, Document Warehouse has two branches - one to service the north located in Ongwediva, and one in Walvis Bay that serves the coast.
