As noted in the Global Wellness Institute’s research study, Spa Management Workforce & Education; Addressing Market Gaps, “The services delivered by spas to their customers are fundamentally about the power of human touch and human interaction. As such, people are at the heart of a spa. People are a spa’s greatest asset and are essential to its success, but people are also typically a spa’s greatest expense and greatest challenge. While staffing challenges occur across all levels and positions in today’s spas, these challenges are especially important and especially prevalent at the management level. As for any other business, talented leadership and strong management are critical to the success of a spa.”
