At OX SEVEN we recruit for some of the largest Hotel Spas in the country and the most luxurious. I feel truly blessed to work with such incredible Talent Partners.

In 2017, there were over 149,000 spas, earning $93.6 billion in revenues and employing nearly 2.5 million workers.

The spa sector has been growing by 9.9 percent annually from 2015–2017, and it is projected to reach $128 billion in 2022.

The top five markets are United States ($20.8 billion), China ($8.2 billion), Germany ($6.7 billion), Japan ($5.7 billion) and France ($3.6 billion).

It is estimated that in order to staff the growing global spa business, the industry will need an additional 300,000 trained spa therapists and 54,000 experienced spa managers/directors (above the current level) by 2022.

Looks like we are going to be very busy….
