The summer of 2020 has emphasized the need for strong leadership as we adapt to the many challenges faced in a rapidly evolving world where the term “new normal” remains on a sliding scale. This trend continued throughout a hot August, as demonstrated by the 90 loss prevention leaders featured in this month’s On the Move. With both top leadership and new leadership finding new homes and new responsibilities we should see some positive things happening in the coming months.
All of us throughout the loss prevention community are proud of the accomplishments of those that have worked hard and earned a new place along the loss prevention career path. Whatever our professional goals and aspirations might be and whatever skills and experiences have helped forge our loss prevention careers, we have to find and seize the opportunities to learn, grow, and progress.
