September has kept us cautiously optimistic, with students returning back to school and retail employees adapting to a new professional lifestyle with companies across the globe. While change has been difficult, it has also led to growth and development in many ways, as demonstrated by the 70+ LP professionals On the Move this month. As we celebrate their accomplishments, we should recognize our own as we face the challenges of the day and continue to move forward.
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.
