Honest employees are the biggest assets of any business. To prevent any kind of pilferage at your salon, place some strict guidelines which should be followed by the salon owner. A transparency should be maintained from an employee perspective about every small detail of the salon. Here are some bullet points to avoid pilferage practices at the salon.

Create a Clear Staff Policy

The policy does not always mean a lengthy legal or a formal contract. However, if you wish, then you can make such policies. It can be simple clear guidelines for a salon employee for their day to day working. These policies must be made clear to the employees. Explain all the details and consequences if the guidelines of your salons are violated. A pattern should be made for better coordination between employees & employers which eliminates the chances of theft or fraud. 

Create Back Bar Inventory Controls

Keeping a check on inventory levels at regular intervals also helps in avoiding fraud practices. This check can be implemented by the following ways;-
1. Keeping a check of prices of each and every service.
2. Maintaining a record of services given to which client & by which staff member.
3. Keeping a strict check on inventory bar levels in salon over a period of time.
4. Calculate cost per service for each client given to them.

Offer Staff Discounts or Free Products

Appreciation is the most positive motivation can be given to any employees. If we offer them with some perks like free services in the salon, offering discounts & gift cards, etc. it will boost their loyalty & reduces the chance of dishonesty. Majority of the companies provide their staff with employees' discount, you can do the same and make your employees feel appreciated. This will not only help in making them loyal but will also help in retaining them.
