The easiest way to describe the importance of the Stock Loss Prevention workshop is in the words of a delegate who has for 3 years been heading up a branch of a hardware store.

"Hi, I just wanted to thank you as we have reduced our stock losses by 24% in the first month after attending your workshop - a saving of approximately R8000 per month for us - and we have been able to identify at least 3 more areas that need work."

From management through to warehouse staff and tellers, all should be involved in the control of stock loss.
