"Taking Over a Loss Prevention Department"

by Mike Keenan, CPP, CFI
Vice President of Loss Prevention
GAP North America

Now it’s time to look at your own department. The first thing to evaluate is the structure. How many direct reports do you have? What are their functions? How many field people do you have? What are their functions? Who do they report to? For example, some report to LP management others report to Store/Distribution Center management. Where are they located? The answers to these questions will give you a good idea of the resources you have available to you from a personnel standpoint. Keep in mind that if you have limited LP people or even if you don’t have any, your company employees are a great resource to help support and drive your programs.

Meet with your direct reports as quickly as possible. A good approach is to meet them first as a group. This helps to understand the synergy in the group and identify common issues. Then meet with each one individually. This will enable you to understand the specific issues each one is facing. A helpful insight into your direct reports can come from past performance reviews. Take the time to read each one and understand what past supervisors thought of their performance and capabilities.

Schedule visits to your stores, distribution centers and any other facilities your company maintains. You must observe first hand how the business looks and works. If your company has a large number of stores, visit a representative sample. For example, different geographical areas, high sales volume stores, low sales volume stores, high shortage stores, low shortage stores, unique stores that do not fit the company’s standard set up, etc. It is not necessary to visit every store in the chain during the first few months in your new job, it is more important to understand how stores are physically laid out and operate. However, if you have a small number of distribution centers and ancillary facilities, visit all of them. Since distribution centers and ancillary facilities are usually unique, it is important to understand, similar to the stores, how they are laid out and operate.

Mix up the people you travel with. Visit stores with your LP people, Senior Management, District Managers, Regional Vice Presidents, Human Resources, etc. Visit your DCs with your LP people and distribution center management. You learn a lot about people when you travel together. Take advantage of the travel time to ask questions and get their perspectives on all areas of the company. You will gain valuable information because they are all great resources.

Many times Directors will go into a new company and quickly assess the LP Department. Based on their assessment, they quickly roll out new programs. Often times these programs fail because the new Director has not taken the time to understand the culture and the history of the company. Existing programs are in place for a reason. Existing employees will resent being treated as if what they did before was ineffective. LP people operate the way they do because it was how they were trained and directed by previous LP management. Spend the time to understand why current programs are in place. What is the best way to do this? Ask questions and LISTEN. Listening is becoming a lost art. You will roll out more effective programs with less resistance if you take the time to understand the culture and the history. Knowing the history of your company will help you to avoid mistakes made by previous management. Even though you are looking forward, learn from the past. You may want to change the culture you find but it is usually more of an evolutionary process that a revolutionary process. It takes time and effort to change the thought processes of your department and the company but it can be done. Just take it one step at a time.

During this initial time in your new position, you will be exposed to a tremendous amount of information. It is important to take notes from every one of your meetings. Unless you write it down, you will forget a lot of what you have learned. Write down what you see as opportunities. This list will enable you to develop action plans based on prioritizing the input from company management. Refer to this list every month and add new opportunities that you identify.

Gift-card scammers rounded up by authorities face charges of ID theft, forgery Five Columbus, Ohio suspects arrested after a raid of a car, two homes, and a business (Easy Mart) turned up files of gift cards that where encoded with stolen credit card numbers. After a year long investigation federal investigators found encoding machines and busted five people. The scheme was of attaching stolen credit card numbers to gift cards with an encoding machine and then using the gift cards as credit cards. The federal case broke open in April after a Columbus man was stopped by a West Virginia deputy. Numerous gift cards were found in his vehicle and a Secret Service forensic examination revealed that 51 were encoded with stolen credit-card numbers from across the country. "This is the new crime," Schuck said today. "This is a small piece of the puzzle, but it’s a big puzzle." Westerville Police Chief Joe Morbitzer says members of the alleged criminal ring were collecting $10,000 a day each. (Source dispatch.com) (Source therepublic.com)

Authorities bust "major crime ring" where four suspects would commit "elaborate" smash-and-grab robberies at jewelry stores in Houston. Investigators said Nicholas Bernard Payne, 33; Desmond Demonte O’Quinn, 18; Philemon Lee Denton, 40 and a fourth suspect, known only as “Roy,” would rush into the high-end jewelry stores – wearing dark clothing and hoodies – then use sledgehammers to smash the display cases and rip-off the merchandise. They would then turn over the stolen goods to Mosquedas Jewelry at 8205 Broadway in exchange for cash. The four robbery suspects were charged with engaging in organized criminal activity. The Mosquedas were also charged with engaging in organized criminal activity. HPD Youtube video shows the suspects committing a robbery at an Austin pawn shop, then being paid for the stolen jewelry by the Mosquedas. In the video, "Roy" is wearing a large white hat and counting money. At the end of the video, he is the person in the vehicle wearing a black shirt. (Source khou.com)

Organized crime group from Southern California possibly involved in a number of burglaries in San Luis Obispo area A number of well thought out burglaries have taken place since January. Where the suspects seemed to "take their time" while inside and cutting holes through back doors, fencing, and roll-up doors. "These are definitely a little more sophisticated than the typical burglaries we see, such as a 'smash and grab,'" SLO Lt. Keith Storton told New Times, adding that the crimes are still under investigation. (Source newtimesslo.com)

We all know that you can't have your eyes and ears everywhere without the help of others. A good leader knows that their shrink goals can be accomplished when they have a team on their side. A good leader is also a good listener; one should be able to connect, motivate & inspire a team. In Loss prevention/ Asset Protection we implement programs, best practices and technologies that change associate behaviors within our store (s). The effectiveness of LP/AP Leadership to reduce store shrink begins with building collaborative relationships; we must remember that management's attitude is vital and essential for the achievement of any Loss Prevention/Asset Protection goals.

McDonald's Jobs Taught Bezos, Leno And Others 7 Big Lessons What do comedian Jay Leno, Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos, former astronaut Leroy Chiao, congresswoman Marcia Fudge, and actress Andie MacDowell all have in common? It's not just that they all worked at McDonald's many years ago. It's that those teen apprenticeships taught them lessons that have lasted a lifetime.  (Once a burger-flipper)

Be More Optimistic. Here's Why Contrasting "optimism" and "realism" is an odd comparison to make, because they're actually the exact same thing. Because you're human, you are not capable of discerning "reality." Everything you see, hear, feel, smell, and taste is being channeled through your mind, which assigns meaning to all of those events. So it's actually an experience of interpretation of reality.  (Did we blow your mind?)
Who Are You Really Mad At? Have you ever realized how often you, and so many people you know, say or do something to someone when, really, it's meant for someone else? Perhaps you know a manager who, after being yelled at by his boss, turns around and yells at his employees. Or maybe it's far more subtle. What do you direct at one person that's meant for another?   (Take it out on someone else)

Are You Creating Disgruntled Employees? You can't make every worker happy, surely, and should a business even try? Evidence from a recent research suggests, actually, that the answer is yes. Or rather, the evidence shows that managers are giving up far too soon on their disgruntled employees, making them less productive than they could be, exposing their company to unnecessary risks and inflating turnover costs.  (Don't play favorites)

Tip of the Day - Sponsored by Vector Security
 

The difference between success and failure is in the planning and the execution. Taking something from a thought or idea to a reality can be a long and painful process lined with failures and detractors. But a great idea is only as good as the plan you have to bring it to life and the execution everyone delivers to give it a life. Because without the two the great idea never existed. As one "C" level executive once told me- He never saw a bad great idea as it was always the failed plan to roll it out and the poor execution that killed it.

Just a thought,
