As employers navigate post-crisis trends and financial instability, it is becoming increasingly clear that addressing all aspects of employee well-being is crucial. Wellable’s survey found that the majority of employers are focusing on mental health (91%), stress management and resilience (77%), and mindfulness and meditation (74%) by increasing their investments in these areas.  

Prioritizing Mental Health In Employee Wellness 

The pandemic has taken a toll on everyone’s mental well-being, causing increased stress, burnout, and disengagement among employees. To combat this trend, many employers are putting a greater emphasis on promoting mental health in the workplace. With 91% of employers investing more resources in this area, it is time to make mental wellness a non-negotiable employee benefit. Employers need to lead the charge and prioritize mental health for their teams. 

Digital Benefits On The Rise 

As companies move away from in-person interactions, there is a growing trend in implementing digital benefits to support employee wellness. These digital solutions are not only cost-effective but also a perfect fit for the new hybrid work models. Employers are embracing the future of employee benefits and making digital experiences a standard in the workplace.  

Financial Wellness Is Making A Comeback 

The economic downturn and prolonged period of high inflation have highlighted the importance of financial wellness for employees. Employers are now recognizing this trend and creating plans to support employees in stabilizing and managing their finances. With 65% of employers investing more in this area, financial wellness will be front and center for employee benefits in 2023.  

Retention Over Recruitment: The Future Of Employee Wellness 

With the inflated cost of replacing employees, which can be as much as $2.9 million per day, companies are focusing on retention rather than recruitment. To do this, they are offering more competitive wellness benefits to their existing employees to increase engagement and satisfaction in the workplace. Companies spent $51 billion on employee wellness in 2020, and that number is expected to increase to $100 billion by 2030.
