Business security systems installed in Leeds

If money, stock or assets are going missing from your business, the last place you’ll want to look is at your staff. Staff theft is a very difficult issue for all businesses but for small businesses built upon trust, the effects can be catastrophic.

Millions of pounds go missing from UK businesses each year and staff theft can mean the difference between success and going bust. However, there are steps you can take to stop the problem in its tracks and prevent it from happening in the first place.

Install CCTV

This might sound like a drastic measure but CCTV really does prove an effective deterrent. In addition, if you suspect employee theft is taking place, CCTV will catch the culprit in the act whilst also providing you with clear evidence.

CCTV provides an ideal way to protect stock rooms, cash registers and valuable equipment. However, for your business to be fully protected, you need to make sure every angle is covered. At Dalec we are specialist installers of security systems for businesses and our team have the expertise to help you choose the right type of camera, resolution and where to position them.

Running a business is extremely time-consuming and the chances are you wont have enough time to spend hours reviewing CCTV footage. Luckily a range of smart apps are available designed to overcome this problem. Smart apps offer the capability to programme different scenarios and when movement is detected, you’ll receive an alert directly to your mobile phone. This means that whether you want to cover all angles or have noticed things going missing from a particular area, your app will let you know.

Honesty is the best policy

If you suspect your staff are stealing from your business, there’s a pretty good chance that they have no idea of the cost or implications to you. Remember that they just see a couple of small cheap items that ‘don’t matter’ but you see the cost building up over the lifetime of your business and eating into your hard-earned profits. Letting your team know how theft impacts upon your business in the long term can prove highly effective, hopefully prompting a re-think by those who think it’s OK to steal at work.
