How to Avoid Employee Theft in Your Retail Shop

As weird as it sounds, it is much more common than we like to think. According to a study, over 75% of employees have stolen from their employers at least once. With the scales tipping enormously in favor of such unwarranted embezzlement, proper precautions and insulation against such occurrences are necessary.

We, at Pogo Security, are your one-stop solution to take care of all your needs and insulation’s against such theft. With our state-of-the-art security systems, security cameras, burglar alarms, and automation systems, you can provide complete security coverage of your premises and ensure that you do not get burgled by anyone, least of all your employees.

Here are some tips from us to help you protect your premises and prevent theft:

Install CCTV cameras

With a network of security cameras all over your premises, your employees will always be keen to perform their duties according to their mandate. With the constant threat of identification by the cameras in case of any intentional mismanagement, your employees are sure to strive towards working honestly and dutifully. Security cameras are one of the best and most cost-effective ways.

Offer above-average Remuneration

High remuneration is something that will make your employees feels valuable. It will create an atmosphere where everyone will take ownership of the business. It will make them feel that they contribute to the success of the company, and they will work even harder and more efficiently. This will also significantly deter any employee from taking part in activities like theft.

Point-of-sale system

POS system makes it extremely hard for any employee to shuffle a few dollars. It should be programmed to open only during cash transactions, and at the end of the day, the total cash transactions should tally up to the total sales for the day. If they do not match up, it is proved that something has been stolen, and makes it relatively easy to follow-up on that.

Stock Measurement

Regular measurement of stock must be a habit. If you regularly keep a tab on your inventory, it will get increasingly difficult to embezzle your stocks. Even if any theft occurs, it can be identified immediately and not at a much later date. Also, even though it is difficult to zero in on the culprit at one go, once you identify such misdeeds, you can keep a closer eye on your employees and look-out for any such potential occurrences in the future.

Always keeping an eye on your employee is not possible. Therefore, it is better to use these technologies and keep them warned all the time is the best way. These technologies can help you to grow. Safe your money and be alert!
