According to the Skill Gap report by National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), India will need around 14.27 million skilled people in the booming beauty and wellness sector by 2022. With shift in focus towards quality of service, the industry has been looking to hire skilled labour to sustain growth. Spending on beauty and wellness is no longer considered a luxury and hence the need arises for a skilled workforce in this industry. The sector offers huge entrepreneurial opportunities and has attracted a large number of youth to explore fascinating employment avenues. Over 50 percent of the workforce among salons, slimming and rejuvenation sub-segments are women. However, men are increasingly gaining interest, especially in hair styling.
A retail professional will interact with customers by giving specialized service and product demonstrations to maximise business in a retail environment whilst striving for continuous improvements in levels of services rendered. A professional with good communication skills and a flair for convincing people can be recruited as customer care executive, sales associate, store operator and growth ladder is good for deserving candidates.
