Understanding the ways of conducting shrink investigations

Shrink investigation is essentially about examining the causes of shrink (loss) in retail businesses. Although retail is one of the fastest growing areas of business, the possibility of shrink is very high in this area. It is also an overlooked area, because of which many shrinks that could otherwise have been prevented, do not get prevented.

Controlling losses is as important as making profits. In fact, it even precedes profit making. A shrink investigation is a means to understanding where the losses lie and what causes them. This should help them to formulate policies and procedures that help them do this. Mapping audit practices to established procedures is important in helping to identify the source of loss. A shrink investigation is ideal for serving these purposes.

A major means for controlling retail losses

A shrink investigation is very important when one considers the fact that a third of all retailers suffer losses that are both unidentified and uncontrolled. Most retailers fail to realize that carrying out a shrink investigation requires a sense of direction and purpose, periodicity, prolificacy, and proactivity.

A webinar from Compliance4All, a leading provider of professional trainings for all the areas of regulatory compliance, will help you expand your thinking and set you on new horizons of shrink investigation. This webinar will be presided over by the highly experienced and acclaimed expert on law enforcement, criminal investigation, loss prevention and fraud examination, John E. Grimes III.

In this session that personnel connected with the retail industry, such as Small Retail Business Owners, Managers, Auditors, Loss Prevention Professionals and Fraud Examiners will find very useful, John will impart a clear idea of all the elements of a shrink investigation.
