In a rapidly growing global spa industry one of the many challenges we face as employers is actually an age old problem. Staff recruitment and more importantly, retention is a major challenge particularly in Dubai, where the spa market is literally flooded with options and opportunities. More now than ever, the opportunities available for spa therapists, receptionists and other spa positions within the region are the best they have ever been. It seems there is no stopping the growth and demand for spas in the region, with new spas being opened seemingly by the day. This growth is great for the employee, where demand for staff is at fever pitch but becomes an increasing challenge for the companies doing the hiring.
