Little or no premium 
attached to skills and 
training
? Most players prefer training their workforce in-house as currently, there is little
premium attached to trained manpower
? Even if an employee is trained, most players re-train workforce to ensure
standardization; this indicates the need to align training courses with employer
requirements
? This creates a mismatch between entry-level employee aspirations and the industry’s
pay scales
? Course fee is moderately high, which makes it difficult for small players to send their
employees for training or for individuals, generally from low-income groups, to opt for
training
Non-standardisation of 
training curriculum and 
standards
? Types of institutes/training providers:
? Training provided by top retail partners
? In-house training by leading industry players
? Government/NGO-run skilling schemes
? Training in the sector is unregulated and there are no mandatory approvals required,
which leads to several uncertified training organisations making quick money by
training
Challenges in 
conducting training
? Training is challenging in the slimming and beauty sectors in cases where the
treatments require large infrastructure
? Typical trainers in the sector are skilled individuals with more than 15 years of work
experience. However, they lack the skill of imparting knowledge to others. Thus,
training the trainers is also a challenge for these institutes
Lack of knowledge on 
career path among 
youth
? The sector’s overall attractiveness as an employer is low. A large portion of the
workforce choose this path due to lack of options.
? There is a significant lack of awareness among the youth on the various roles in the
sector and opportunities available for each.
? There is no clarity on career prospects for students; shifting to another  service role is
possible, but pose a challenge since the knowledge and experience in this sector is
technical.

? Leading organized players in the sector have been forthcoming in providing employment support for people with
disabilities
? Players such as Blossom Kochhar’s Group, Jawed Habib’s Academy, VLCC Academy and several others have trained
several candidates with disability to be employed in the sector or for captive requirements
? One of the main challenges in training candidates with disability is the longer training programme required to impart
knowledge and practice; However, once they have been trained, they function on par with any other employee
without disability
? Partially visually challenged candidates are best suited for rejuvenation services such as massages and reflexology,
while those with hearing impairment are suited for a large set of roles across sub-segments. Candidates with
locomotor disability are well-suited for front/back office roles, technical roles such as hair styling, beauty therapist,
pedicure and manicure services
