The most important asset of any organization is its people. Profiting from the sale of product or services offered may be the driving force of the business, but if something disrupts the perceived value or morale of the employee, the downward trend of business is inevitable. Two groups, with distinct functionality, loss prevention and human resources, are essential in the protection of this most important asset. Workplace violence, equal opportunity, hostile work environments and sexual harassment have generally fallen under the scope of human resources or employee relations. Theft, fraud, procedural or safety violations tend to be the responsibility of the loss prevention professional. However, any of these incidents significantly impact the employee and profitability of the business making collaboration between these two groups essential to their success.
Protecting the best interest of the organization, while understanding the investigative and legal framework around these issues is something that should involve all relevant parties. Any decision made that impacts the safety and treatment of our most valuable asset, should be a collaborative effort of these two distinct, experienced and vital perspectives.
