Why having retail security is no longer a luxury you cannot afford.
Cutting Budget Costs On Retail Security Services Could Be A Big Mistake
Retail theft in Britain is higher than in Europe.
The UK is breaking new records for the wrong reasons, the Centre of Retail Research said Britains shoplifting for 2009 was at a record high and admittedly did reduce slightly in 2010 to 4.4BN but this is likely to prove the exception to the rule with future forecasts predicting a continual increase.
The majority of these crimes are committed by the usual suspects, organised gangs, professional shoplifters and the opportunists but will shock you is that 36.4 percent is carried out in house by staff members.
So ask yourself this, how do you prevent becoming a victim?
The answer is very simple, you invest in a Retail Security Service provider that can handle all aspects of retail security, inclusive of staff monitoring, a company that has a hard earned reputation for supplying security personnel that are experienced, knowledgeable that are well versed in all aspects of client care.
And most importantly, gives you the absolute best value for you money.
What if you are already employing security staff but they are giving you cause for concern?
You should never have any doubts about the people you hire and this is especially true and most relevant to security personnel. Hiring the proper security company will enhance and develop your companys profile and reputation, not prove detrimental to it.
The answers are still the same, give yourself peace of mind and let fully trained and SIA license professionals handle your needs.
There are too many security companies out there whose sole wish is to provide a body so that they can take your hard earned money. This attitude is endemic and should be picked up on immediately and avoided.
Information should be cascaded down from the management team allowing their staff to be kept up to date on all relevant matters.
What this means to you an employer is that your money is wisely invested and not squandered on disinterested and lazy security guards.
Given the fact that the recession is still very much in evidence, it is understandable that you will be reluctant to hire a security company but to do nothing is to invite trouble and means you are taking a gamble with your business and your staff.
That is why we recommend that you invest wisely by employing retail security services and in doing so you will find the best use for your hard earned money.
You can make the choice easy for a shoplifter, do they stay at you place of business and get caught by an attentive and experienced retail security guard or do they move on to another much easier target where they can steal with absolute certainty that they will be unopposed?
