Maintaining Your Business Security while on Vacation

Security Camera Maintaining your Business Security while on Vacation Your business is your baby, and you wouldn’t want to leave your baby unattended while you’re away on vacation. You’re entitled to time off—you’ve certainly earned it—but before you go, there are a few ways to make sure your business remains secure while you’re away.

  • Security cameras: CCTV can be your best friend while you’re away. It’ll allow you to access the cameras remotely and see exactly what’s happening in the store. In case of emergency, you’ll be able to tell exactly what happened. It’ll also help you keep an eye on your employees to make sure their time is being spent effectively.
  • Talk to your customers: While you don’t need to broadcast that you’ll be away—knowing you aren’t in town can attract thieves—definitely tell your regular customers that you’ll be out of town. They’ll want to know how to handle anything that may come up, and who they can contact in your place while you’re away.
  • Create a schedule: Let your employees know when exactly you’ll be calling and checking in. It’ll keep your employees from thinking you don’t trust them while also making sure you’re kept up to date on anything that might be going on in the office. That said, don’t call every day. Allow yourself some time to relax. It is your vacation, anyway!
  • Emergency plan: Plan and keep an emergency plan on file, so if something were to go wrong, your second-hand person knows exactly how to handle it as you would. Emergencies can happen at any time, even when you’re gone, so it’s important that they know how to handle it. Keep all your contact info readily available for them—cell and hotel phone numbers included—so they know how to reach you at all times.
