The U.S. Chamber of Commerce estimates that 75% of employees steal from the workplace and that most do so repeatedly. In 2011, U.S. retailers lost a total of $34.5 billion in “shrink” – or inventory lost as a result of employee theft, shoplifting, administrative error or vendor fraud – according to the National Retail Security Survey. Of that, 44% was a result of internal theft; only 36% was a result of shoplifting. The costliest and simplest mistake to correct is when companies do not properly screen their employees. Starside’s background employment screening
is a necessary theft prevention tool for your company. Although it will not guarantee an employee will not steal, a background check will certainly reduce the risks and liability of a bad hire. Also, having a security guard will be a preventive action to take to dissuade theives from your retail store. Starside has worked with large retail chains as security providers for over 20 years
ORGANIZED RETAIL CRIME (ORC)
According to the National Retail Federation, 96% of the 125 companies surveyed stated they have been a victim of Organized Retail Crime (ORC). Organized retail crime has grown into a business worth tens of billions of dollars. It is not only criminals stealing products from within the store but organized gangs stealing the products during the distribution process. Approximately 16% of goods stolen are from the loading docks. A deterrent for ORC is having Starside’s guards
at your store fronts and at your distribution centers.
