Installing closed-circuit television, more commonly referred to as security, in your establishment is incredibly important to your bottom line. Businesses are always at risk of theft, dishonest time reporting, and lawsuits. It just comes with the territory.
Restaurants, in particular, are vulnerable to internal theft, customer credit card issues (one of the only industries where employees have physical access to customers’ cards), and “slip and fall” claims from both employees and customers. Installing security cameras at multiple checkpoints on your property can help with loss prevention, lawsuits, and employee productivity.
Think about it. How many times have you
- Questioned the accuracy of an employee’s clock-in/clock-out times?
- Caught wind of a team member or server giving friends free drinks or food?
- Heard about a slip and fall lawsuit in a local restaurant (which have risen about 300% in the last 30 years, according to QSR)?
These situations, some of which are avoidable, cost restaurants millions of dollars every year, but you can drastically reduce that number for your business with strategically placed CCTV cameras. Your insurance company may even offer incentives, like reduced premiums, for having security cameras installed.
