Everything comes down to a matter of cost. If paper costs more, management should be convinced (eventually) of the efficacy of the paperless approach. I've seen this done with paychecks, leave and earnings statement, training requests, leave slips, timesheets, vacancy announcements, newsletters, and even the official personnel folders. All were at one time printed on paper, mailed to employees or maintained in big file rooms. It is a matter of time before all communication methods go virtual.
