In a competitive industry like retail, every dollar counts. And you know what you’re up against. In an industry study, just over two dozen U.S. retailers reported shoplifting and employee theft losses of more than $4.7 billion in a single year.* They caught 1 out of every 28 employees stealing. A larger study of U.S. retail chains found that shoplifting cost retailers nearly $10 billion in losses, and employee theft cost $15 billion.**
Those shrinkage losses don’t include other threats to your bottom line: losses from robbery or burglary, fire or vandalism, or fraudulent injury claims, to name a few.
