article description
The corporate wellness industry is diversifying and now includes legacy wellness companies, divisions of health plans or delivery systems, and new technology-focused solution enterprises. We conducted in-depth interviews with leaders in the industry to understand the changes in its supply side, the drivers of these changes, future trends, and their implications for employers and policy makers. Three key trends emerged from the interviews: The industry is expanding and becoming increasingly diverse and competitive; wellness companies are redefining their business models to promote a culture of health; and the value proposition of employee wellness programs is shifting from a return on investment to a new idea: value on investment. Our findings clarify wellness companies' innovations, their contributions to population health improvement efforts, and the need for additional evidence to demonstrate the value of the new generation of wellness products and services.
