Exploring the effect of wage increases, changing energy support measures, rent, and overheads, the newest State of the Industry survey is designed to analyse the diverse issues facing the hair and barbering sector.
The short questionnaire, which takes approximately eight minutes to complete, considers the various successes and challenges facing the service sector.
From the consequences of the recent reduction in energy bills support to fluctuating footfall, the evidence collected will be presented to the government to lobby for increased representation and support from policymakers.
In particular, the findings will be submitted as evidence to the Low Pay Commission. This is the independent body in the United Kingdom that advises the government on the National Minimum Wage.
State of the Industry surveys produce useful information for the British Beauty Council and other stakeholders in pushing for change across the service sector.
For example, the data collected in previous iterations of the survey was used in a submission to policymakers regarding current business rate systems. Recently, the government introduced the Non-Domestic Ratings Bill, which reforms business rates, as a result of an ongoing consultation that the Council and other stakeholders submitted to.
