BARBOUR

As the recruitment crisis continues to plague the beauty sector, many of you are coming up with innovative ways to find those diamonds in the recruitment pool – the ones you know will be loyal and hardworking. The ways you are finding and retaining these standout therapists include putting a new rota system in place so weekend and evening shifts are shared out fairly among the team (43%), as well as letting long-term staff do less of these unsociable hours once they have been with the company a certain amount of time (19%).

As such, just under two thirds (62%) of you have donated or raised funds for Ukrainian relief appeals. PB London returned to ExCeL London on April 3–4, check out the highlights on page 67.
