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%).
Meanwhile, many of you have been focusing on your charitable efforts too, with salons across the UK wanting to stand strong with Ukraine during the war. 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.
