Ordering retail anti-theft devices to prevent shoplifting is one thing. Having a better understanding on how to use them is a completely different thing. To order these security devices, the only education you need is to understand which devices will work for the specific products you want protected from shoplifters and theft.
Once you get the anti theft devices, you will need to know how to use them. Sure, you can probably fiddle around with them until you figure it out, but is that really the best use of your time? The way you come up with to use them might also not be as efficient as the one the actual manufacturers (Alpha Security) created.
Since it is their devices, it makes so much more sense to go directly to the source to learn the best possible way to attach and detach these security devices. Just as Alpha Security has worked tirelessly to provide the best quality and reliable, product specific anti theft devices, they have also worked to create a better way for the end user (your store) to use them.
Alpha Security has created a series of instructional videos aimed at educating their customers in how to more efficiently use their anti theft products. The videos are not very long, but they provide a visual reference as to how to properly attach and detach these security tags, devices, and other anti theft products.
Most people are visual learners, instead of auditory ones. Having the visual as a step-by-step reference makes a more complete training for these products. Retailers are no longer forced to figure the applications out on their own. Having a series of instructional videos can also be an important enhancement to an employee on boarding, or ongoing training program.
It is a key step in helping to ensure 100% compliance in tagging programs. Completing hands on training is a good step. Having these same employees view the instructional videos, and then being provided hands on training by a manager or peer will further solidify the proper way to complete this task. Having a two step process also covers the gambit of learning styles to help employees more fully understand what they are expected to do.
The instructional video can be watched over and over, paused, rewound, etc so the employees don’t have to worry about missing a step. If they didn’t see something, or wanted to watch a particular step again, the video allows this to happen.
With this video addition to your training program, it becomes much easier to hold your employees accountable for their productivity. An employee who is not following the tagging processes at 100% might say they weren’t trained, or they didn’t understand the training. Having a two-step process helps to weaken their arguments that they didn’t know what was going on. A training video also helps to standardize the training process- ensuring every employee has access to the same information.
