Abstract

This paper presents the extent of the integration of ICT systems in records management in labour organisations in Botswana. The study was largely guided by a survey research strategy. All the 50 registered labour organisations in Botswana were surveyed, 45 of which responded, representing a response rate of 90%.The findings of the study indicated that the depth of electronic records management in terms of existing office systems; e-mail management; integration of records management in ICT systems; integration of ICT systems across computing platforms; and integration of electronic and paper-based record management systems in labour organisation remains low but firmly evolving. It recommends that labour organisations need to re-strategize and put benchmarks in relation to the manner in which they manage electronic records and information.
