After the time and effort you take to establish a small business, the last thing you want is to lose money to theft. Theft – from within or without – can cut into your business profits, hindering your growth and expansion. Commercial insurance from Harris Insurance is one of the most effective ways of protecting your Jasper, AL business. Here are some measures you can take to safeguard your business against theft.
Make Use of Video Surveillance
Installing CCTV cameras around your business property can help discourage theft, both from within and without. If your employees and customers know you have video surveillance, they’re less likely to commit theft during business hours. CCTV cameras can protect your business when it’s closed as well by deterring breaking and entering when no one is there.
For optimum protection, combine video surveillance with a customized alarm system to reduce your company’s risk of theft and vandalism year-round.
Background Check Your Employees
Perform background checks on new employees before hiring, particularly anyone who will be working with finances or will have access to financial data. Choose employees wisely, taking into account their character along with work experience. When appointing department heads or supervisors, consider workers you know well who have earned your trust over the years. By building a loyal workforce, you reduce your risk of employee theft and fraud.
