ABRAPPE presents a committee dedicated to transforming the security model in retail

November 16, 2021.

The Brazilian Association for the Prevention of Losses (ABRAPPE) announces the formation of a committee whose objective is to act in the transformation of the security model in retail. The Committee is formed by several companies in the sector and, at this moment, it is led by Grupo Carrefour Brasil, for a term of 1 year. The president of ABRAPPE, Carlos Eduardo Santos, explains that the committee will meet monthly to discuss issues related to: conflict management, management of goods and incidents diversion, in addition to relations with authorities.

For Carlos, a change of focus is needed: “having the customer as a priority directly impacts conflict management and, therefore, investing in change management, involving sensitivity and awareness of all employees, not just those responsible for safety, is fundamental. In this way, we are able to have a more controlled environment with regard to the treatment that clients will receive.”.

In the leadership of the Committee, Grupo Carrefour Brasil will have the mission of promoting the discussion on new approaches for security in retail. The company believes in increasingly humanized safety with a total focus on the customer and, therefore, the professional who works as a prevention agent needs to have a more welcoming and empathetic profile.

“The security model that we are implementing in our stores is pioneer in Brazil. With this, we want to guarantee to our customers and employees that they will find a safe environment to make their purchases. With the support of technology, we will be able to guarantee that any conflicts that may come to happen in our stores can be resolved in an adequate and transparent manner. We believe that this is a model that can stimulate the sector’s reflection on the role of security in retail”, highlights Jérôme Mairet, Risk and Loss Director of Grupo Carrefour.
