The New "R"s for Engaging Millennial Learners - Leading in this Millennial Age? Here's two leaders in that field who can help you become better Leaders  We've never mentioned or offered a webinar as a Spotlight on Leadership, but given the importance and impact that this one could have on your leadership skills and the need to learn as much as you can about leading the new workforce, we thought this one stood out. Take a moment to hear their brief explanation and if you want to become a better leader in this Millennial age you might want to invest the time. With two leaders in this specific field speaking and one of them actually involved in our LP & Safety space this will make a difference. As Carol Leaman, CEO at Axonify Inc., whom we wrote a "Spotlight on Leadership" article on ourselves, entitled "Canada's Leading Female Hi-Tech Entrepreneur" Award Winner - Innovating North America's Loss Prevention & Safety eLearning Space," will be leading the conversation with her guest, Dr. Christy Price. Dr. Price is a nationally recognized authority on innovative teaching techniques to engage modern learners and was chosen by the Carnegie Foundation as the Outstanding U.S. Professor for 2012. She is currently a professor of psychology and the founding director of the Center for Academic Excellence at Dalton State College.

What you can expect to takeaway:


Recognize the characteristics of millennial learners and consider how these characteristics impact training design and delivery.


Identify the characteristics of ideal learning environments for millennials and understand how you can transform your current environment to meet the needs of millennial learners.


Assess how well you meet millennial learners’ criteria for the ideal educator, trainer or leader.

U.S. shopping malls increase security in time for holiday crowds
With just three weeks to go before the busiest U.S. shopping day of the year - the day after the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday -- government security officials are ramping up efforts to better protect the nation's approximately 109,500 malls and shopping centers. In recent weeks, federal law enforcement agencies have been quietly urging private mall security firms to strengthen and reinforce security measures, including lock-down drills and employee crisis training, according to one federal law enforcement source. Each of the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation's 56 field offices around the nation is meeting local police and security personnel at area malls and shopping this month, said FBI spokesman Paul Bresson. Later this month in Sacramento, California, DHS officials will hold expanded security exercises with all the area malls and shopping centers to reinforce training for active shooter and other emergencies, said Steve Reed, head of security at the 77-acre Arden Fair Mall. Active shooter incidents have increased 150 percent over the past four years. (Source

Sports Retailer Takes Steps To Deter Flash Robberies  The Sports Authority retail chain is making changes to deter the type of robberies that have plagued Chicago-area stores. The jackets will no longer be displayed prominently at the front of the stores. Clerks say they’ve been moved to the back, with only three or four on a rack. Customers now have to ask for the jackets and wait for clerks to bring them up from the storage. It’s all to protect customers. (Source

The Volumatic Kount US Retail Fraud Survey 2013 reveals mobile fastest growing sales channel - but fraud prevention practices failing to keep up  The Survey, commissioned by retail consultancy Retail Knowledge, stated: “Mobile channels offer a new opportunity for fraudsters and in conducting these interviews we got a sense that loss prevention processes and technologies are not keeping pace with new mobile options”. The Volumatic Kount US Retail Fraud Survey also highlighted that analytics and monitoring was a top concern and that some 17% of those retailers that trade online do not use any systems for analytics and monitoring. The Survey also revealed that 39 per cent of retailers that trade online do not use fraud management external systems at all, regardless of sophistication. (Source

Getting wise to wardrobing - hitting the UK as well
The Daily Mail recently profiled the growing trend of ‘wardrobing’ in the UK: buying clothes, wearing them – then taking them back for a refund. The Mail featured research by saying: One in six women buy clothes, wear them and then return the items drobing’ culprits, Leicester ladies the least likely to indulge; Nine percent of women surveyed seek out clothes that have a safety pin tag – which means the label can be removed and replaced. However in the US, where the National Retail Federation has identified that wardrobing cost retailers $8.8 billion last year, fashion chain Bloomingdales has found a solution. It now puts unsightly black tags on the front of garments that cost over $150, and won’t accept returns without them. The prevention device, named the Seal Tag, was a collaborative effort between Bloomingdale’s and WG Security Products Inc., a California-based company that has developed a reputation over the last 15 years for innovative and original EAS technologies. It is not an EAS tag, but a one-time use device which is typically applied at the point of sale, to a noticeable area of the garment. Customers are instructed that removal of the Seal Tag voids any return policy. This prevents customers from wearing the garment for a day and attempting a return, therefore ensuring honest returns. The Seal tag is very easily removed by hand and once removed, cannot be re-applied. Read full Daily Mail article here. (Source

New York City Asks Court to Vacate Rulings on Stop-and-Frisk Tactic - The ongoing story of racial profiling in NYC  The Bloomberg administration, in its most aggressive push yet to erase the stain of a judge’s rulings on police stop-and-frisk practices, asked a federal appeals court on Saturday to vacate her decisions, which had ordered sweeping changes including the appointment of a monitor. “The district court’s orders lend credence to the notion that the N.Y.P.D. unfairly targets minorities for stops and frisks,” Mr. Cardozo wrote, “undermining its ability to carry out its mission effectively. He also made reference to Judge Scheindlin’s findings that in stopping and frisking people, the department had violated the Constitution and resorted to a “policy of indirect racial profiling. “Wrongly labeling the N.Y.P.D. — and the City — a racial profiling entity and flouter of the Fourth Amendment should be sufficient injustice to vacate the Orders,” Mr. Cardozo wrote.

A KPMG report that analyzed nearly 600 fraudsters between 2011 and 2013 found the typical fraudster is 36 to 45 years old, is generally acting against his/her own organization and is mostly employed in an executive, finance, operations or sales/marketing function. The report found the fraudster holds a senior management position, was employed in the organization more than six years and, in committing the fraud, frequently acted in concert with others. (Source

Small Carriers Becoming A Target For Cyber Crime And Freight Theft  Cargo thieves have taken to hacking in to a fleet’s electronic network to gather information on what the most valuable cargo is, where it’s headed, and most importantly where it’s being picked up. Thieves can use this information to perform false pickups where they pose as the driver who is actually supposed to be picking up the freight, accept the load, and then just drive off with it. By the time the real driver shows up, it’s too late and the thief and cargo are long gone. The ability to know where a specific shipment is – especially for high value goods like electronics – makes it easier to steal and more profitable to steal than randomly taking a tractor-trailer on the street.

WG Security Eliminating Wardrobing with the Seal Tag

Recently, news outlets such as ABC News, Bloomberg Businessweek, Yahoo!, Fox, and even the Daily Mail in the U.K., published stories about the new and exciting method Bloomingdale's has initiated to fight the scourge of wardrobing. According to these stories and citing the National Retail Federation, wardrobing is a form of fraud that cost retailers $8.8 billion last year. While Bloomingdale's is to be commended for an outside-the-box way to reduce shrinkage, what you don't know is that this revolutionary wardrobing prevention plan was a collaborative effort between Bloomingdale's and WG Security Products Inc., the California-based company that has developed a reputation over the last 15 years for innovative and original EAS technologies.

The device in use at Bloomingdale's locations throughout the nation to stop wardrobers in their tracks is the Seal Tag, available now from WG. It is not an EAS tag, but a one-time use device which is typically applied at the point of sale, to a noticeable area of the garment. Customers are instructed that removal of the Seal Tag voids any return policy. This prevents customers from wearing the garment for a day and attempting a return, therefore ensuring honest returns. The Seal tag is very easily removed by hand and once removed, cannot be re-applied. It can be personalized, with your business logo imprinted on the front, adding a degree of elegance. You can watch our video for more information about wardrobing and the Seal Tag.

If wardrobing is a concern for your business (and judging from the comments section of these stories, it should be), the Seal Tag is the answer for you. Contact for more information on the Seal Tag.

For the retail subject matter experts, read the recent column in Retail Wire!

The First Step to Being Powerful
When you make a mistake, lecturing yourself or beating yourself up about it isn't going to help, and it won't make the mistake fix itself. It's important to make sure you have confidence in your ability to drive change. To become powerful, you need to own yourself. (Watch how you label yourself)

Stop Worrying About Making the Right Decision  Making decisions is an important part of everyone's jobs, but it's hard to know whether or not you are making the right decisions.

Progress or moving forward has as much to do with which way you're facing as anything else. If you stay focused on facing your customer and not your internal team then you might find success is a little closer than you think. This goes for the vendor and for the retailer, as we all have customers to serve both internally and externally. And while it's impossible to always stay facing them, the mere thought of it will bring you back a little faster if you just remember that your ultimate success is driven by your customers, whether it's individual stores or companies. Much too often we all tend to get lost in the politics of our inner group and use it as a means of avoiding having to accomplish difficult tasks. But all you've got to remember is to turn around and face the customer and then you'll be back on track getting things done and moving forward.

Just a Thought,
