Ready? Here we go: 83 percent of ISPA spa members are females with high to moderate stress levels. These busy bees work on average 52 hours per week. In addition to their standard roles and responsibilities, on average they spend about nine hours in meetings and 6.1 hours on social media each week. On top of that, they spend 3.8 hours reviewing and/or responding to emails every day.
Ninety-nine percent of ISPA spa members hold a manager level position or higher within their company. Decision-making authority is highly prevalent among all ISPA member types. This is one of the characteristics that makes ISPA such a unique spa industry community. Members don’t just peruse the latest products in Pulse or on the Expo floor, they make purchasing and marketing decisions for their company. Ninety-eight percent of spa members either make or influence retail purchases and 97 percent impact their brand’s marketing strategy.
