U.S. corporate wellness market size, by service, 2018 - 2028 (USD Billion)

The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted the mental health of employees. After its onset, it led to the work from home transition which resulted in a great deal of stress among employees due to the feeling of isolation. Moreover, the pandemic hit the economy creating a financial crisis for many individuals which in turn affected their mental health. To tackle the problem, wellness service providers are adopting virtual methods to provide services such as meetings with psychologists and health coaches.

Corporate wellness programs include a set of policies, programs, and benefits addressing multiple risk factors and conditions and influencing both employees and the overall organization. According to the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), in the U.S., corporate programs promoting wellbeing and health, and providing disease prevention plans can potentially influence more than 150 million employees reducing the cost of healthcare significantly.

Employees are encouraged to adopt a healthier lifestyle and help companies to enhance productivity and reduce costs, by ultimately improving employee wellbeing. The total costs related to lost productivity due to absenteeism related to illnesses are expected to cross USD 150 billion in the coming years. The growth in obese and overweight population leads to increased insurance costs accounting for the financial burden on the employers.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the businesses have found ways to protect and prioritize their employees physically by providing tech support to assist social distancing in the implementation of new leave policies. Employer’s focus has shifted to preventive and constructive management by helping workers adapt to new standards.

Service Insights

The health risk assessment segment dominated the market for corporate wellness and accounted for the largest revenue share of 21.1% in 2020. Corporate wellness programs mainly include screening activities to identify health risks and implement appropriate interventional strategies to promote a healthy lifestyle among employees. Around 80% of the employers offering employee well-being services, opt for health risk assessment of their employees. In June 2016, Wellness Corporate Solutions launched the WCS Analytics + platform, which consists of an interactive data dashboard that enables the clients to plan and implement healthy activities leading to productive workplaces.

End-use Insights

The large scale organizations dominated the end-use segment and accounted for the largest revenue share of 52.8% in 2020. According to RAND, around 70% of organizations invested in health screening services in the year 2013. Well-documented studies indicate that correctly implemented programs can yield a return on investments of around 3:1. Larger organizations can incorporate programs and services into their company’s infrastructure. Small scaled organizations can benefit from corporate memberships and outsourcing the services.

The implementation of corporate wellness programs helps in tracking various diseases. Health screening programs are conducted at regular intervals to keep a check on health, promoting preventive care, and reducing treatment costs. The focus of corporate wellness programs on such conditions can reduce the disease burden and the overall cost of healthcare premium paid by the employer to any insurance provider. Although lockdown and closure of offices have resulted in a large group of employees switching to work from home models, it still remains vital to ensure that employees are able to access and continue to use wellness services at the workplace.

Category Insights

In the category segment, organizations dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 50.3% in 2020. The service providers offer in-house as well as outsourced health management services for large as well as small scale corporations. The trend of on-site fitness, which includes yoga and meditation, is becoming popular. Therefore, the stress management segment is anticipated to witness the fastest growth from 2021 to 2028.

Delivery Model Insights

Onsite corporate wellness programs dominated the delivery model segment and accounted for the largest revenue share of more than 57% in 2020. The segment is anticipated to witness a high growth rate over the forecast period. Onsite wellness initiatives provide a personal touch to employee wellbeing, along with the facilities to exercise under the guidance of fitness consultants and coaches to meet their personal health needs.

Many organizations have restructured or added benefits and insurance plans to meet employees' and their families' health needs. Service providers are creating awareness among employees regarding unhealthy aspects related to work from home due to COVID-19. For instance, the pandemic has resulted in a shift from in-person meetings to virtual meetings. However, associated challenges such as the need to focus harder to process non-verbal cues such as body language and facial expressions, poor internet connections leading to disconnection from the meeting, and multitasking during meetings are causing more stress and exhaustion as compared to in-person meetings.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the corporate wellness market and accounted for the largest revenue share of more than 42% in 2020. According to the RAND employer survey, approximately 50.0% of the employers in the U.S. offer wellness programs to their employees. Larger employers offer more complex wellness initiatives.

Global corporate wellness market share, by region, 2020 (%)
