The U.S. corporate wellness market size was worth USD 20.05 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.9% during the forecast period.

Corporate wellness is the set of programs & policies that promote employee health and behaviour. These programs encompass both mental and physical health and well-being.

The rising burden of chronic illness among workers in the country is one of the predominant factors bolstering the adoption of corporate wellness by the employers in order to reduce absenteeism, stress, and improve personal growth.

According to the American Institute of Stress 2022 survey, in the U.S., an estimated 83.0% of employees suffer from work related stress. Furthermore, according to the survey, depression-induced absenteeism costs around USD 51.00 billion to U.S. businesses. Such programs will contribute to the reduction of healthcare costs over the forecast period, as they promote preventive care and reduce treatment costs.

Furthermore, rising government initiatives to promote awareness regarding employees’ well-being and the launch of various programs by companies to cater to the rising demand are some of the few factors contributing to the U.S. corporate wellness market growth.

The market witnessed a slower growth during the COVID-19 pandemic. This was due to the temporary halt in various onsite wellness activities, such as onsite gym services and fitness classes.


Rising Launch of Programs to Support Mental Health Among Workers

The growing cases of mental health among working individuals are raising the demand for workplace wellness programs. Rising depression, stress, anxiety, and others owing to excessive workloads are affecting the mental health of employees. Furthermore, inequality and discrimination in the workspace and poor working environments is decreasing the employee work efficiency. Such factors are shifting the employer focus toward adopting corporate wellness programs to improve the work culture.

  • For instance, according to the 2022 report published by the Society for Human Resource Management, approximately 78.0% of organizations in the U.S. offer workplace mental health programs to their employees as a part of employee healthcare plans.

Furthermore, in order to cater to the rising demand for these services, the companies operating in the market are launching new plans, platforms, and programs.

  • For instance, in August 2023, United We Care launched mental health and wellness offerings as corporate employee assistance programs.


Increasing Focus to Improve Employee Engagement and Reduce Cost by Organizations to Shoot Corporate Wellness Service Adoption

The growing number of employees leaving their jobs due to poor work culture has led the organizations to increase their focus on implementing programs to improve employee engagement. In addition, large and middle-sized organizations are investing heavily in order to adopt various preventive health programs to improve work efficiency, enable employees to be more active, and mitigate the effects of absenteeism. Such measures are adopted to reduce the cost and increase savings, raising the adoption of wellness programs.

  • For instance, according to the Employee Wellness Industry Trends Reports published in the year 2022, an estimated 71% of U.S. employers are planning to invest more in meditation benefits.


Limited Accessibility Coupled with Privacy Concerns and Other Factors to Restrict the Market Growth

Despite the launches of various wellness programs for the workplace and the increasing adoption of these services by employers, the lack of employee engagement is one of the factors limiting the market growth. A multitude of factors, such as privacy concerns among the employees, restricted accessibility, limited management participation in the promotion of these services, and availability of generic programs, are impeding the market growth.

  • According to a report published by the IBM Institute of Business Values in 2021, an estimated 80.0% of employers reported supporting the emotional, mental, and physical well-being of their employees. However, only 46.0% of the employees agreed to the data.
