ISPA Announces Workforce Study Launch

The International SPA Association (ISPA) Foundation announced the launch of a groundbreaking spa workforce study at the 2017 ISPA Conference & Expo being held at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, October 16–18. The study is aimed at analyzing the recruitment, retention, and engagement of professionals in the spa sector.

The ISPA 2017 U.S. Spa Industry Study indicated there are nearly 33,000 vacancies in the spa industry. Massage therapists accounted for 18,780 open positions representing one in two unfilled positions. 

“This workforce study will provide valuable insights into what motivates and influences employees within the spa industry,” says ISPA President Lynne McNees. “Assisting spas in filling vacancies and nurturing future spa professionals is a top priority for ISPA.”

ISPA members may participate in the study by visiting www.spaworkforcesurvey.com. Results from the study will be released in the first quarter of 2018.
