While June marks our transition to summer, this year it also brings other changes as retailers have returned to business and we begin to adjust to a new normal. As demonstrated by several industry leaders in this month’s On the Move, new challenges and responsibilities are very likely to change the landscape of loss prevention in the coming months, with different and expanding roles to follow. How we respond and the decisions that we make will help shape the future of the industry. In addition to the nearly 50 professionals recognized in this month’s On the Move, we would also like to congratulate all of those making a difference as we move forward.
Professional advancement and building a successful loss prevention career can mean many things to many different people, and there are many different ways to evaluate our career vision and professional aspirations. But what is most important is that we find the path that fits us best. Whatever our professional goals and aspirations might be; whatever skills and experiences have helped forge our personal loss prevention career path, we have to find and seize the opportunities to learn, grow, and progress.
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. Please join us in congratulating the following individuals on their recent career moves and promotions.
