At Octopus we supply personnel folders  and HR files for every type of business from the huge range of office stationery that we stock.  If you want just a plain file or a printed folder, we can supply what you need.

Sigma Personnel Folder

The Sigma personnel file is our most popular file that is designed specifically for use as an employee file.  It comes in 3 colours, those being blue, green and yellow and each colour comes in two capacities. The standard capacity is flat and will accept up to 30 pages, where as the 30mm capacity wallet will take up to 150 sheets.

Standard Folder For Employee Information

Of course you don’t have to use a branded HR folder to store your employee’s personal details.  Many businesses use a standard file and customise it to their own Employee Filespecifications.

Document Wallet Personnel File

The humble document wallet is made from 285gsm card and has a pocket and a flap that folds over.  These are ideal for use as a personnel folder as they will hold up to 150 sheets of A4 paper and can fit neatly into a filing cabinet or in a desk filing drawer.


The standard document wallet is available in a good selection of colours, therefore if you categorize your employees, this may help.  This type of wallet comes in half flap of full flap versions, ideal if you want to put lots of information on the front flap.  Using this style of wallet eliminates the need to punch the papers.

Polypropylene Files

There is a range of plastic document wallets that can be used for HR records.  These generally would have a press stud fastener to keep documents secure.  Polypropylene Flat Bar Filesfolders tend to last longer than the card variety and can be wiped clean should they get dirty.  This makes them ideal in environments where files can get dirty, greasy or wet.

Flat Bar Files For Personnel

The flat bar file is a simple file that has a capacity of 200 sheets of A4 or foolscap paper.  It is made from strong 285gsm card and is available in a selection of colours.  They have a 2 piece clip to hold the papers and one the documents are punched and inserted, they are very secure.  If the personnel folders are transported then these files are ideal as the documents are fixed securely.
