New video and weekly tips make five minute security reminders easy for retail owners and managers
(NEENAH, Wis.) – The holidays are prime time for boosting your holiday traffic, but they are also a prime time for jewelry losses with inventories at their highest and attention focused on sales rather than loss prevention.
To assist retail jewelers with keeping safety and security top of mind during this busy season, Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company has released its latest Secure Business Series video, “Holiday Security Tips”. Additionally, Jewelers Mutual has kicked off a series of eight consecutive holiday editions of “Tip of the Week,” each of which will be relevant to holiday security, so that jewelry-business managers may share the information with staff in well under five minutes.
“From November until the end of the year, we know it’s crunch time for jewelers everywhere,” said David Sexton, CPCU, vice president of loss prevention consulting. “It’s tough to keep your associates focused on safety as well as sales, but we hope that our video and the short Tip of the Week posts will help owners and managers reinforce that safety and security should be part of every associate’s job.”
In less than five minutes, the fifth video installment of the Secure Business Series details three tips for a secure holiday season: hire smart, instill honesty, and keep security procedures locked down. The key takeaway is to have a well-rounded staff in place and familiarize them with the best practices for operating a jewelry business.
Each Tuesday through December, Jewelers Mutual will also release a special Holiday Tip of the Week to provide a quick dive into a seasonal security topic. Tips include suggestions on extra security for Black Friday, preparing for winter storms, and how to handle increased shipping and receiving activity.
“Time is a precious thing, so these tips were designed to be shared in under five minutes,” said Sexton. “A simple reminder can be a key component to preventing losses and making your holiday season that much brighter.”
