“Jewelers are still at high risk even though their operations are temporarily shut down or changed,” said Larry Spicer, Jewelers Mutual vice president of Loss Prevention and Risk Management Services. “This is a great opportunity to brush up on best practices.”

Each of the 10 courses offered focuses on a different area. Two of the most popular are Selling with Security, which provides education on preventing theft and how to stay safe during a robbery, and Danger on the Road, which is tailored to traveling salespeople. There’s also a course on cybersecurity that is beneficial to anyone working from home or engaging in e-commerce.

More than 1,000 businesses use JM University as part of their annual training and new hire orientation. Managers can assign specific courses to staff and monitor their progress. Many of the courses have built-in quiz modules to reinforce the learning and provide a feedback loop if more attention is needed on a topic.

“Offering complimentary access to our resources is the right thing to do,” Spicer said. “For the past month we’ve focused on extending services to our policyholders, but we also remain dedicated to supporting the entire jewelry industry as we navigate this uncertain time. Together, we’ll get through this.”

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
