Business Loss Prevention
Loss Prevention 101: Investigative & Security Tools to Protect Business Assets
As a business owner you take pride in everything in your company. When something is stolen it not only hurts your business, but it hurts your margins as well. No business can succeed for very long if they are taking these hits.
Unfortunately, many businesses’ employees are the ones behind the crimes, stealing inventory, cash or other funds. By the time employers learn about the crime, their business has often already taken a hit, and the employee may be long gone.
In order to be smart when it comes to loss prevention, employers should utilize tools that can help them stop stealing the moment it starts.
Small concealed cameras, for example, can help employers record crimes so that they have evidence if they need to press charges or let an employee go. These devices come in handy when an employer suspects theft and is looking for proof before initiating a confrontation.
Discreet voice recorders are another tool employers can use to monitor what’s being said in and around the workplace. Oftentimes people talk about what they’ve done, like in the case of stealing, and these recorders can provide the evidence you need to take action.
Loss prevention is paramount when it comes to the success of your business. If you suspect that something is not right, it’s important to take action immediately before you are put out of business.
