With over 55,000 businesses employing nearly a quarter of a million people, the UK hair and beauty industry is one of Britain’s success stories, doubling in size over the last 15 years.
And one of the key drivers for that success has been a commitment to training and skills, with the UK hair and beauty industry becoming the envy of the world for its standards.
But how do we really measure up? What are the skills issues that keep salon and spa managers awake at night? Are businesses confident about the future? What are the trends in client numbers and spending?
The Habia Employer Skills Survey 2012 looks at all these questions and more, looking at the key issues affecting businesses today.
With sections on business confidence, skills gaps, training and development, recruitment and vacancies, and individual analysis of the hair and beauty sub-sectors (hairdressing, barbering, African type hair, African type barbering, complementary therapies, nail services and spa therapy), the Habia Employer Skills Survey 2012 is provides one of the most authoritative and comprehensive reports ever into the state of the industry.
