Question
Dear Leo

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archive

Is it a good practice to keep the Employees Database History i.e
Electronic version in form of CV/Resume/Bio-Data,Interview Screening form,Joining,Exit, Appraisal files etc as well as printed version of the same right from start up of the co ?.

Do you recommend that the Human Resource Management System should be able to extract employees data records right from inception ?.

Example : The co is 20 years old.

i.e. Once the Employee exit the corporate, how many years viz 1,3,5,10 etc the employee history should be maintained
and stored in electronic and printed version by Human resources department ?.

Awaiting your reply,

Thank & Regards
