When you use security tags on clothes, as owners and managers we often focus our efforts on compliance. Did we tag all of the clothing? Are the Checkpoint Tags in the proper location on the garment? Do we have a new item that we want to enhance our clothing security with?
What we often forget about is how to train our employees in responding to alarms generated by the clothing security tags. If you had a bag in your hand, with an item inside that had a clothing security tag on it, and walked out the exit door triggering the alarm, 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 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.
