If you walked out the exit door triggering the alarm because you had active Checkpoint tags on some merchandise with you, what would your employees do? Would they come over to deactivate the tags? Would they validate the receipt?
Would they simply ignore the alarm and continue on with what they are doing? That uncomfortable silence emanating from your employees can do more harm than you may realize.
What we often forget about is how to train our employees in responding to clothing alarms generated by security tags on clothes. Any alarm that is not responded to is a signal to potential thieves that no one cares about the alarm activations. If no one cares, than it is easier for a thief to steal and not worry about the consequences of getting caught.
That is where training your employees on the expectations are critical. It doesn’t matter how many times an alarm goes off, if no one responds, all of your time and effort to tag the merchandise is rendered useless.
More often than not, the reason why employees disregard the alarms is because they do not feel comfortable with how to respond. By properly training them and showing them your own example of how to respond, your alarm activations will be much more productive.
