The Future of Therapists
Staff is not everything, but without staff a spa is worth nothing. We are facing a completely mad situation: on the one hand there is a considerable shortage of spa therapist (which is more or less everywhere the same), and on the other hand we have to currently send therapists home due to lock downs of hotels and spa busi-nesses. On top of that spa guests will demand high profile therapists in the near future, experts say. Top-notch professional education is crucial. But how can we achieve that? Sustainability in staffing is mandatory. But how can we achieve that? Will Africa suffer from the same bottleneck in staffing of spas as Europe and the US does? Questions over questions!
Wilfried is an expert in spa business since more that 20 years and will explain what led to the bottleneck in staff and what to do to overcome.
