Conducting a Shrink Investigation when you cannot Determine the Source of your Losses

Overview

Running a Retail Business can be rewarding. However, uncontrolled and unidentified losses can put you out of business. The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners estimates that as much as 33% of all small business failures is a result of controlled and unidentified internal fraud. Losses can occur as a result of external theft, internal fraud and theft, delivery discrepancies, mark-up and mark-down errors, and other paperwork issues. The only way you can identify the amount of losses is by taking periodic detailed inventories.

A recent survey of retailers indicates that the average shrinkage (or losses) totals 1.45 percent of sales. That may seem like a small number; however when compared to low gross margins, it is significant. Shrinkage trends are moving up.

Why Should You Attend

As much as 33% of small business management failures is a result of uncontrolled and unidentified losses. If you are small business retail owner, manager, or loss prevention consultant, this webinar will teach you how to conduct a full shrink (loss) investigation. If you are contemplating opening a small retail business, this webinar will give you a head start on understanding the complexities and importance of controlling losses.

In addition to developing overarching policies and workable relevant procedures that govern the business operations, including loss prevention, a retailer must be able to conduct a full shrinkage in retail or loss investigation when the source of the losses cannot be determined.

By attending this webinar you will learn the process of conducting a shrink investigation in a retail environment, including: covert observation of the store; a review of policies and procedures; a review of practices that are in contrast to established best practice procedures; a review of point of sale data including refunds and voids; taking frequent inventories; delivery audits; and paperwork review.

Areas Covered In This Webinar

This webinar session will explore the importance of controlling losses in order for a retail business to be successful.
