"Designing Growth Strategies is in our DNA"
The global corporate wellness market size was valued at USD 58.68 billion in 2022. The market is projected to grow from USD 61.27 billion in 2023 to USD 85.02 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.8% during the forecast period.
Corporate wellness or workplace wellness are the programs adopted by employers or an organization to improve the well-being of their employees. These programs are designed to help employees better understand their health risks and engage in healthy workplace behavior. Organizations are progressively implementing these programs in order to improve employees’ personal growth, improve their morale, reduce stress and absenteeism, and boost productivity at work.
According to the 2023 data published by the U.S. Department of Labor, about 23% of employees working in private organizations with 50 workers have access to wellness programs, and about 76% of employees have access to workplace wellness programs working in organizations with more than 500 workers. A similar trend is anticipated to be observed in other countries.
The rising prevalence of chronic disease owing to unhealthy diet patterns, sedentary lifestyles, high stress levels, and overexposure to digital screens caused due to long time working schedules is increasing the demand for wellness programs at the workplace.
Furthermore, growing awareness related to mental health issues in the workplace and the shifting focus of employers on employee engagement and retention are a few factors contributing to the global corporate wellness market growth.
Market Growth Declined Amid the Pandemic Owing to Closure of Various Wellness-Associated Activities
The global market witnessed a decline during the COVID-19 pandemic. A noteworthy amount of expenditures are spent on traditional workplace wellness activities such as fitness classes, gym membership, health screening activities, and others. During the pandemic, due to the implementation of stringent lockdown restrictions, many of these activities were curtailed. Moreover, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, companies shifted to low-cost online platforms for providing workplace wellness as a result of their cost-cutting measures.
However, the post-pandemic scenario exhibited steady growth owing to the rising cases of mental health problems and anxiety among employees, growing awareness regarding workplace wellness, and the launches of various online platforms to promote these virtual programs. In addition, after the pandemic, employers increased the adoption of these programs for their employees in order to promote a healthy workplace environment.

Shifting Employers’ Focus Toward Holistic and Virtual Wellness of Employees
Organizations are shifting their focus from physical fitness toward a more holistic approach that includes the social as well as mental well-being of an individual. The rising number of working professionals suffering from work-related stress is a key factor behind this shifting preference.
Furthermore, with an increased remote work culture, organizations are adopting virtual wellness programs to cater to the distributed workforce. Virtual wellness programs mainly comprise fitness classes, mental health counseling, and others. Through virtual and holistic wellness programs, the employers ensure that the well-being of the employees working remotely is not compromised due to the lack of physical presence in onsite office space. To meet the growing demand for holistic and virtual wellness programs, the companies operating in the market are launching various programs in developed and developing nations.
Increasing Prevalence of Mental Stress and Growing Emphasis on Mental Health to Augment the Market Growth
The rising mental health burden among working professionals due to poor working environments, including excessive workloads, job insecurity, discrimination, and inequality in the workspace, raises the demand for corporate wellness programs. According to the WHO 2022 report, an estimated 15% of working professionals suffered from mental disorders in 2019. Such factors are expected to promote preventive care and reduce treatment costs.
Moreover, the rising awareness of mental health problems in the workplace surged the adoption of corporate wellness programs by employers to increase work efficiency among workers.
In addition, companies are launching new programs to cater to the rising mental health issues at corporate offices.
Rising Focus to Increase Employee Engagement and Cost Reduction Raises the Adoption of Corporate Wellness Services
The rising incidence of employees quitting their jobs owing to a poor work environment has led organizations to focus on implementing programs to increase employee engagement. Moreover, employers are investing heavily in adopting preventive health measures to mitigate the impact of absenteeism and increase work efficiency. This factor is increasing the adoption of workplace wellness programs, which is anticipated to lead to substantial cost savings.
Limited Awareness and Low Employee Engagement in Developing Nations to Limit the Market Growth
Despite a rise in the adoption of workplace wellness programs, there are various challenges in implementing corporate wellness programs in low-and-middle-income countries. Various factors, such as low awareness, budget constraints, concerns associated with privacy, lack of confidence, and others are hindering the acceptance of these programs by employers as well as employees.
A similar trend is anticipated to be observed in other developing countries, which is anticipated to hamper the market growth during the forecast period.
Growing Launch of Various Health Risk Assessment Programs by Companies to Foster Segment Growth

Workplace wellness health programs mainly comprise screening activities for identifying risks associated with health, further implementing appropriate strategies, and promoting a healthy lifestyle among employees. Companies are launching various health risk assessment programs, which is a factor that drives the growth of the segment.
The stress management segment is projected to grow at a lucrative rate during the forecast period. The rising concern of mental problems such as depression, anxiety, and others among employees is one of the key factors raising the demand for stress management services. In addition, employers are shifting their focus and adopting stress management programs to support employees in coping with stress experienced during work. Wellness companies are also launching various platforms and programs to cater to the rising demand.
Moreover, fitness, smoking cessation, and weight/nutrition management segments also account for a considerable share in the market.
