An Honest Mistake

There are three sides to shrink. There is external theft (shoplifters), internal theft (employees), and operational errors. When you use anti theft devices like an EAS system to prevent retail theft, the common thought is concerning the external element. What a lot of retailers don’t know is that an EAS system is more than just an anti shoplifting device.

 I often challenge my cashiers to be 100% accurate in their checkouts. We use a cart test to validate their accuracy. If the cashier is not at 100% I show them what they missed and why. I then show them how those mistakes turn into losses. We spend time training the entire front-end staff that those mistakes, however honest they might be, can cause a loss. Those errors are also likely to set off the EAS system.

 By responding to the alarms, my cashiers have a chance to discover and fix their mistakes before they become a shrink loss. The EAS system will catch the activated tags or labels that pass through the doors, regardless of it being a shoplifter, an employee stealing, or an honest mistake.
