And this is achieved by incorporating different health activities in the work schedule daily to boost their employees’ wellbeing.
In general, people are spending more money on their health and welfare instead of clothing and traveling, as Covid-induced restrictions have curtailed their movement and social contact. Here are the highlights of some of the top trends that will shape the future of corporate wellness programs in 2021 and beyond.
1. Wellness Industry Projected to Grow by $1,300bn during 2021-22

Therefore, we are all likely to see more collaborations between the leading media conglomerates and the wellness world as well as all manner of wellness programs in 2021 and beyond, impacting billions of lives around the globe.
3. Creativity to Take on New Meaning
The coronavirus pandemic has brought in-person events to a screeching halt. But Covid-induced restrictions and lockdowns have forever changed the notion of meetings and events, especially wellness programs: fitness buffs set up indoor gyms and more online training programs were offered.

4. People Likely to Get Savvier about Wellness Products

Therefore, people are expected to be wiser about wellness products that claim to make the immune system more effective and go for a more rounded approach.
5. Remote Wellness to Be the New Norm
Covid-19 pandemic has upended life in more ways than one, with remote work becoming the ‘new normal’ for a number of people, including wellness professionals. Remote meetings, one-on-one sessions, and pre-packaged wellness programs will become more common in 2021 and beyond.
