The Australia and New Zealand Retail Crime Survey
The Australia and New Zealand Retail Crime Survey 2019, sponsored by the Profit Protection Future Forum and Checkpoint Systems was launched in July 2019. The Survey provided our members with regionally-relevant, contemporary data, on the issues that we know impacts on the bottom line both in traditional bricks and mortar stores and via online channels.
We are indebted to our members for providing their information, data, knowledge and valuable insights. As a leading consortium on profit protection across Australia and New Zealand we take seriously our underlying objective to 'lose less, sell more'.
Loss Prevention in a Time of Accelerated Change: How can Loss Prevention Future-Proof the Businesses they Protect?
The initial motivation for this white paper was to learn how Loss Prevention (LP) teams dealt with the pandemic related lockdown. However, through talking to LP managers it became evident that the observations are transferable beyond the context of COVID-19. Times of crisis reveal the essential characteristics of effective strategy and tactics in ways that “business as usual” conditions simply cannot.
The focus of this study was modified to consider the implications for LP in the context of a sector facing challenging circumstances and a rapid acceleration of prevailing trends.
