18 Senior LP Jobs Open
Heading Into the Fourth Quarter
Most Ever Heading into Q4??
With 18 senior LP jobs open heading into the fourth quarter it's going to be
a mad rush to fill those jobs before November 1st, because then retail runs
into the executives who won't leave until after the holidays and some will
be counting on their annual bonuses which don't normally pay out until March
So this is squeeze time for Retail America in getting these
jobs filled and quite frankly it can be used to an executive's advantage in
the negotiation process to a certain extent. Albeit slight, it still
represents a card to be played in the process.
The issue is how
effective can the executive really be when joining during the holiday push.
One can only expect to learn the retailer and their customers and become
familiar with their operations, because how much change can one expect to
make when everyone is focused on selling?
On a side note this
is a very high number going into the fourth quarter and certainly reflects
the sense of urgency Retail America is placing on this position, which
obviously is being driven by current events and the state of retail's
exposure. As a matter of fact I don't think I've ever seen
this many open at one time at this time of year ever before. Now
does the internet play a role in this in that it broadcasts the openings -
quite possibly. But after thirty years of filling these jobs and monitoring
this specific job category I don't think I've ever seen 18 open at this time
of year heading into Q4. Just a thought - Gus Downing
How Employers Should
Prep For Active Shooter Situations
In-house counsel must work with management to
prepare for active shooters
While you do not
want to overreact, inaction and lack of preparation are no longer viable
In order to protect your workforce and avoid liability
under various laws, you should work with management to identify and develop
an appropriate workplace critical incident protocol (WCIP).
First, you must consider what laws and government agencies may be at play in
the case of a workplace shooting, as well as what has been expected of
employers in the past.
One government agency sure to get involved if
there is an active shooter situation in your workplace is the
Occupational Safety and Health Administration. OSHA has the ability to
fine employers if reasonable steps to maintain a safe workplace are not
taken. What the agency considers "reasonable" is subjective and will depend
on the specifics of each case.
Certain industries have greater
liability exposure under the Occupational Safety and Health Act, including
late night retailers, liquor stores, banks, hospitals and home health care
workers. These industries are expected to have a WCIP or
may be required by the agency to have an emergency action plan.
Equally important is identifying the specific state laws that impact how to
best position memorializing and implementing your WCIP. It
is also important to consider any available general guidance from your
state's attorney general and local law enforcement on concealed carry in the
workplace and active shooter preparation. law360.com
French Mayor Cancels
Europe's Largest Flea Market Over Terror Fears
Drew 2.5 Million Visitors Last Year - An
The mayor of the French city of
Lille said Friday that it was canceling its annual flea market, the largest
in Europe, due to fears of a terrorist attack. She made the decision because
despite the local government's efforts to ramp up security at the
event, which drew 2.5 million visitors last year, it was impossible to
guarantee the safety of the crowds.
The event, originally
scheduled to take place on Sept. 3 and 4, is a major revenue generator for
the city, with 10,000 exhibitors setting up their stands in
its streets. Hotels and restaurants are traditionally fully booked during
the weekend, which gathers bargain-hunters from across the continent.
The presence of large crowds meant there was no guarantee victims
could be properly treated and evacuated by emergency personnel in
the event of an attack. "In addition, it is reasonable to think that even in
the absence of accidents, the climate of fear is such that the
slightest noise or crowd movement could create a state of panic with serious
consequences," Aubry added. wwd.com
Security in the retail sector on the rise
Retail to join government and hospitality as top vertical markets
Across the globe, retail spaces will purchase more physical security
measures, such as cameras and EAS (electric article surveillance) systems,
and the Americas will be a strong region in the forecast period from 2016 to
2020, according to a July 28 report from research firm Technavio.
see the retail sector becoming one of the top three physical security
[vertical markets]," Amrita Choudhury, Technavio research analyst, told
Security Systems News. The retail market, government and the hospitality
industry, will be the largest vertical markets globally, she said.
For the combined Americas region, including North and South America, the
market value is "around $2.09 billion for 2016, and by 2020 it's going to be
around $2.69 billion, and the CAGR will be 6.38 percent," Choudhury said.
Choudhury couldn't provide data on individual territories, but said, "the
U.S. is definitely a big player in this market."
The Americas made
up about 47 percent of the total market in 2015, Choudhury said, and that
percentage will drop slightly-down to around 46.3 percent by 2020. The
Americas market is still growing, but other regions, such as Asia/Pacific,
are growing at a faster rate.
For 2016, [the global market value] is
$4.46 billion, by 2020 it's going to be around $5.8 billion ... and the CAGR
is approximately 6.67 percent," Choudhury said.
Key retail end users
that are expected to adopt more security technologies include department
stores, restaurants, super markets, and a "hyper markets"-stores that carry
both merchandise and groceries. Choudhury said that the report segmented end
users into these four categories, but doesn't have information about which
will grow the most; the report focuses on case studies on these markets.
Choudhury said that video surveillance, electronic article
surveillance-or EAS-and video analytics are key technologies in this market
growth. "These three are really driving the overall physical security
market," she said.

July shootings are at
lowest point since the city started recording crime stats in 1994
The city saw fewer serious crimes last month than in any July since the NYPD
began comprehensively tracking the numbers, the department announced
The downward trend continues from June, which also had a
record low number of serious crimes for that month since 1994, when the
modern tracking system started. There were fewer than 100 shootings in July
of this year-an all-time low for the city, according to city records. It's
the eleventh consecutive month where shootings were below that level.
Bratton emphasized that the drop in crime continues as police make fewer
arrests, a trend crime experts have lauded. "New York is proving that we can
have what everybody wants: more public safety with far less police
enforcement," said David Kennedy, professor at John Jay College of Criminal

Shoplifters is Permissible, Calif. Court Says
Barring a shoplifter from
Home Depot stores and their parking lots is constitutionally permissible,
the California Supreme Court said Thursday, upholding a probation sentence
that a defendant had challenged based on his constitutional right to travel.
"He may - without violating the challenged condition - freely move
about his community, the city, and the state of California," the opinion
said. "In short, the restriction on his movement imposed by the probation
condition is too de minimis to implicate the constitutional travel right." law360.com

which include 100 vacant positions at its Family Dollar store support center
in Matthews, North Carolina, are part of the chain's ongoing efforts to
integrate its support functions through a shared services model.
"Since completing our acquisition a year ago, we have communicated our plans
to utilize a shared services model, leveraging our back office functions to
support both the Dollar Tree and Family Dollar business segments."
"We will operate and grow both banners," Sasser added. "At Dollar Tree,
everything is $1 while Family Dollar serves as your neighborhood discount
store. To insure that we deliver value and the brand standard, we plan to
keep our customer-facing organizations separate and focused on the
individual banners. Specifically, store operations and merchandising
functions will remain largely unchanged. There are no plans to include these
functions in the shared services model."

Wal-Mart Rolls Out a New Worker Scheduling System
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is trying out a scheduling system in hundreds of stores to
give employees more control over their hours, as it seeks to address worker
discontent around unpredictable scheduling without boosting labor costs.
The retailer, which has 1.5 million U.S. employees, has put the new system into
about 650 of its Neighborhood Market stores in the past month and could
eventually use it in all of its approximately 4,600 U.S. locations, said Mark
Ibbotson, executive vice president of central operations for Wal-Mart.
The new system is an upgraded version of the company's employee scheduling
software that allows Wal-Mart to better predict staffing demands to give store
managers and employees real-time information on open shifts and staffing
changes. Under the changes, some full-time and part-time employees will be
able to have a fixed schedule for up to six months. Most employees will stay
on the current regime, getting three weeks advanced notice of their schedules.

Is Changing Way Companies Assess Risk, Fraud - Part 4
Scott Stephenson, chairman and chief executive of Verisk Analytics, a
provider of data, analytics and decision support software primarily for the
insurance, natural resources, and financial services sectors, discusses how
analytics is changing risk assessments and how analytics helps companies
What do C-suite
executives and board members need to consider when introducing data
Mr. Stephenson: All business
leaders must commit to the growth of their enterprise by ceaselessly
innovating. At Verisk, we send our senior leadership to "data/analytic boot
camp." Analytics is at the leading edge of business innovation and it works
best when embraced throughout an organization. An advantaged behavior on the
part of any business...is to seamlessly make use of data from within and
outside the enterprise to generate new and unique insights.
What should they be thinking about when evaluating a data analytics program?
Mr. Stephenson: A very good question to ask is, "Are my
line managers thinking, behaving, and sounding more like data analysts, and
are my data scientists and data engineers sounding more like line managers?"
Ideally, the business thought and the data analytic thought should be side
by side between the left and right ear of the same individual. Even if not
that integrated, a shared mindset should reinforce the notion of using data
to create meaningful information and not merely to warehouse it. Companies
should also assume that they will be performing much of their work in the
cloud within five years. Companies need-and can achieve-continuous, agile
improvements propelled by skillful use of data analytics. Read

Butchering 'BAD' BOTS
- you just can't kill'em all
A bot is a
computer program that's made to automate a human task on the Internet. It's
made to take what a human would do and turn it into an automatic action that
something can execute over and over and over again. But remember, there is
always a puppeteer behind it.
The really bad bots are being used to
defraud - to hijack customer accounts. They are looking for vulnerabilities
in the site. It used to be an individual hacker who wanted to make a buck.
More and more we're seeing criminal enterprises. It's a much bigger effort
now because more money is at stake. So there's a shift toward
Any retailer with stored value - such as
gift cards - sitting in their accounts. That basically means most major
retailers ... . The bad guys are basically trying to get into the accounts
and clear them out. They can buy stuff or sell stuff on the black market.
Most of the really sophisticated bots are embedded in the computers of
the end users. They are hiding out on the computers of legitimate consumers
- operating quietly in the background.

The big takeaway for
retailers is to think about how much money you have attributed to security

physical loss prevention without putting at least that same amount of
security online to thwart the "bad" bots?
