ISPA launches campaign to highlight spa industry as career option

20 Nov 2017
The International Spa Association (ISPA) has launched its 'Get Your Dream Job' campaign, designed to “elevate and celebrate careers in the spa industry”.

The campaign has been launched in partnership with the Beauty Changes Lives Foundation and has the support of 10 partner organisations across the spa industry, including the Green Spa Network, the International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association (IHRSA) and Professional Beauty Association.

The initiative will be promoted by spas, salons, clubs and beauty-related schools across the US to build awareness of career opportunities in the spa sector.

“With the spa industry’s continual growth, careers in the business offer stability and opportunity,” said ISPA President Lynne McNees.

“This campaign will spread the message about the benefits of working in spas, salons and clubs to attract job seekers looking for promising careers.”

The campaign includes a dedicated online platform for schools, allowing them to download ISPA grant applications, as well as posters and flyers to promote spa-related careers.

As part of the launch, ISPA also announced it has commissioned PwC to conduct its first industry research-driven study aimed at analysing the recruitment, retention and engagement of professionals in the spa, salon and club sectors.

Results from the study will be released in the first quarter of 2018.

According to the 2017 ISPA U.S. Spa Industry Study, there are currently nearly 33,000 vacant positions across the US spa and beauty industry.
