The LP Industry's #1 News Source - Informing, Educating and Instilling a Sense of Community

Facebook Twitter Linkedin

News Brief - Sponsored by WG Security Products

Metro One’s President Phil DeJulio honored for work with returning Veterans  De Julio has always offered opportunities to military veterans, but has recently become part of the Army's Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) Program, which connects private sector businesses with soldiers transitioning back into the work force. "When Army veterans who have signed up for the program come off active duty and are looking for a job there are a lot of companies like us where they can come for an interview," said De Julio. "This is an opportunity for us to help veterans. This allows us to hire individuals who have a strong work ethic, loyalty, commitment and self discipline." To find out more about Metro One's participation in the PaYS program, call (718) 370-6778. (Source silive.com)

Amazon has also been searching for a senior Loss Prevention executive for their North American Fulfillment Centers out of Seattle  A position that reports to the Global Security and Investigative Executive at Amazon.

The Small-Format Explosion Is Coming
The workforces of the 1980s and 1970s were forced out of urban centers into the suburbs,” he noted. “Now, empty nesters are moving back into the cities, new corporations are going into downtowns again, and young consumers are returning to urban and exurban communities.” The small box trend is the logical extension of retailers’ growth plans following the consumer. -The small box trend is the logical extension of retailers’ growth plans following the consumer. Small stores allow you to get into deep urban markets,” O’Connor said. These high-density urban neighborhoods provide less flexibility for retail development so large retailers are using smaller stores. Any big-box retailer you can think of -- from Target to Tesco -- are all looking at how they can experiment with smaller stores, whether that be through a new format or a smaller versioned box. The trend also makes financial sense to a big company with limited growth options after saturating the country with its large stores. Walmart’s comparable store sales in the U.S. have been flat or down for several quarters. This year, the retailer announced it would open up to 300 small-box format stores, including up to 200 Neighborhood Markets and up to 100 Walmart Express units. The company has not announced expansion plans publicly for Walmart to Go. (Source csnews.com)

Malls are the New Anchors
With the exception of a hundred or so A malls, the B, C, and D malls are learning the hard way what they should have anticipated and acted upon a decade ago. Instead of the heavy dependence on their anchors for generating traffic and profitable growth, mall developers should have realized that nothing stays the same forever. It didn’t require a rocket scientist to predict that technology would drive a fundamental transformation across the entire industry and threaten to the very existence of retailing, as we knew it. The Internet is Not the Only Culprit - 1. Millennials Are Replacing Boomers as the Largest Consumer Segment. 2. Cash-Strained, Lower Income Consumers. 3. Outlet Malls On Fire. What’s an Anchor to Do? If you happen to be a retailer “anchoring” dying malls, you need to determine how you can get the heck out of there without paying huge penalties. Then craft a new, smaller neighborhood store strategy that can be freestanding or as a part of one of the new lifestyle “villages” mentioned earlier. (Source therobinreport.com)

LVHM Settles With Ebay - Combating Counterfeits
In a joint statement, the companies announced today they have engaged in “a cooperative effort to protect intellectual property rights and combat counterfeits in online commerce,” adding that “thanks to the cooperation measures put in place, the companies have settled ongoing litigation.” (Source wwd.com)

Companies Are Outsourcing the Chief Compliance Officer Job
A handful of companies have cropped up that provide these outsourced CCOs, who may fill the role at a number of companies at once. Proponents of the approach say it allows a smaller company to have the expertise of a full-time, independent compliance professional. But even they concede that the outsourcing option isn’t the best choice for all firms. (Source wsj.com)

US Credit Card Fraud Is Spiking Ahead of EMV Secure Chip Introduction
The belated rollout of EMV security chips in credit cards in the US is expected to lead to an increase in fraud. In fact, more fraud is already here, said Allen Friedman, director of payment services at Ingenico, a provider of card payment terminals and services. “Sixty-seven percent of the UK-issued card fraud is from the US.” “We are the last G20 country to go EMV and the criminal rings behind card fraud come with P&L demands,” said Julie Conroy, research director for retail banking at Aité Group, a Boston-based firm specializing in financial technology. “The transition will be challenging,” she added. “We are going to have all these different permutations of transactions at point-of-sale terminals — EMV- enabled with EMV terminals, some terminals will be ready and some cards will have EMV chips. (EMV stands for EMV for Europay, MasterCard MA -0.84%, Visa, the three companies that developed the standard for the security chip.) In her report on EMV, Conroy predicted that fraud would migrate to ATMs and e-commerce fraud, called “card not present.” But Friedman said that the US delay in moving to EMV has meant that fraudsters can use the mag stripes on European cards for fraudulent transactions at American merchants.

Building a security awareness program on a shoestring budget
Implementing a security awareness program seems rather straightforward, until you actually start to implement one - factoring in things like resources and the people (users) to be trained. At that point, it can seem complicated, costly, and unnecessary. However, the process doesn't have to be a logistical and expensive nightmare, and it's certainly worth it in the long run. Organizations both large and small have implemented awareness programs for next to nothing, and while they're not perfect, many of them are able to show measurable results. The key to these successes however, is based on understanding what it is that the organization is actually trying to accomplish. There's also a shakeup happening - thanks to a seemingly endless stream of data breaches this year that have placed several large companies in the headlines. The result of this shakeup is fear, and sometimes fear has a way of producing the budget needed to strengthen security. In some circles, this additional funding opens the door to the development of security awareness programs. (Source csoonline.com)

World Customs Organization, International Trademark Association join forces on counterfeit fight 
The World Customs Organization (WCO) and the International Trademark Association (INTA) have agreed to collaborate in the fight against counterfeiting. A memorandum of understanding - signed this week at the WCO headquarters in Brussels, Belgium - will strengthen "coordination through education and training projects, and through the exchange of information and best practices between Customs and the private sector", with a particular emphasis on public awareness raising, said the two organizations in a joint press release.

Lowe's workers fix vet's broken wheelchair; Michael Sulsona had been waiting 2 years for a new one from the VA   Michael Sulsona said the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs had denied his requests for a replacement. Last week, his wheelchair fell apart while shopping at a Lowe's on Staten Island. Three employees immediately jumped in to help, taking the wheelchair apart and replacing the broken parts while a tearful Sulsona watched. Forty-five minutes after the store closed, Sulsona left in a wheelchair that was "like new," he wrote in a letter to the Staten Island Advance newspaper. "I kept thanking them and all they could say was, 'It was our honor,'" Sulsona wrote. Since the letter was published, VA officials sent Sulsona a custom wheelchair and have pledged to service his chair when needed. (Source kwch.com)

Payments Cards Are Getting A Technology Upgrade — And It's Bad News For Online Retailers  In the U.S., most consumers and merchants will soon need to switch over to the 'chip card' standard, otherwise known as EMV. It's a technology most recognizable as a chip on payment cards, which is designed to make card transactions much more secure. In Europe and other parts of the world, the chip has been standard on payment cards for years. BI Intelligence looked at how fraud trended in the U.K. after the implementation of EMV to get a sense of what the trajectory would be in the U.S. While fraud went down over all, card-not-present fraud actually went up initially. Card-not-present transactions are those most often conducted via online channels. Why did card-not-present fraud go up? Criminals who were dissuaded from trying to clone payment cards turned to vulnerabilities in online payment systems. In the U.K. card-not-present fraud volume remained above card-present fraud volume through 2012. That's especially notable considering how much smaller the online market is compared to in-store sales volume. Take a look at the BI report to find out what the transition to EMV will entail, the cost, and who the winners and losers will be in the payments and online industries. (Source businessinsider.com)

Mobile Commerce Is Taking A Much Bigger Slice Of Total E-Commerce Activity
We've reached a tipping point in how consumers access e-commerce sites. Nearly 25% of e-commerce site visits in the U.S. during the first quarter of 2014 came from smartphones, up from approximately 18% for the whole year 2013, according to data from Custora, compiled by BI Intelligence in the chart below. Tablet-wielding consumers are driving more traffic to e-commerce sites as well. Twelve percent of e-commerce site traffic in the first quarter came from tablets, compared to just 9% for the year 2013. (Source businessinsider.com)

After the suspect applied for a credit card, he was told that the company’s computers were down and left the store. The jeweler wrote down his license plate number, and the man was later arrested at another jewelry store. Despite these arrests, JSA president John Kennedy advises jewelers to be on the lookout, noting that other gang members are still out there. (Source jckonline.com)

Are You 'Leadership Material'?
According to a recent book, how you perform in your job isn't enough to land you a leadership role. You have to be perceived as "leadership material" just as much as you need to be successful in your career. Here's how to tell if you have what it takes! (Project your presence)

Will Your Employees Say You're the Best Boss Ever?  What makes a great boss? The list could go on and on, but it most certainly involves how well you manage and inspire others. Every leader must ask themselves these questions, daily, to make sure they're being the best boss they can be. (Be honest)

Want to Be a Good Manager? Pick Up a Book  When a manager isn't effectively communicating, trust breaks down and everything seems to fall apart. Don't travel on the road to failure, and keep in your industry's loop. Getting your nose in a book could keep you ahead in the game. (Brush up on business)

How to Speak Like a Leader
You can project your leadership presence through your personality, or characteristics that set you apart, but what do powerful leaders look like when they speak? There's a big difference between someone we see as powerful, and someone who's average. (Abstract language)

Looking at one's career should be viewed as a long-term investment tool that maximizes the individual's return on their efforts. Similar to any other investment strategy, a career is the building blocks for retirement. However, as most studies show, job satisfaction and recognition is as important and in some studies more important than monetary rewards. So how one reaches a balance is the key and making sure you challenge yourself about them periodically is wise.

Just a Thought,
Gus Downing
