    Conflict Management and Personal Safety Training for Retailers

    For over 25 years Maybo has helped retailers of all types manage workplace violence risks, ranging from local stores and retail partnerships to international brands. We provide guidance and employee training in how to reduce and manage customer conflict, plus safe and respectful approaches to disruptive behaviour and theft.

    Proven experience and expertise

    Maybo’s retail training modules help sales assistants reduce conflict with customers through proactive service and to safely defuse emotive situations that do arise. We give supervisors, managers and loss prevention colleagues the additional skills required to step in and resolve conflict and safely manage disruptive behaviour and suspected thieves.

    Our clients benefit from our flexible, cost effective training approach that includes eLearning and courses (delivered by our trainers or yours) for key roles and ‘hotspots’, with tailoring options for your specific needs.
