U.S. Financial Wellness Benefits Market Segmentation

The U.S. financial wellness benefits market research report includes a detailed segmentation by program, end-user, delivery, type, industry, geography. The fluidity of the current pandemic-afflicted landscape has increased the importance of financial planning programs among employees. As employers increasingly realize the impact that it can have on business in terms of performance, they are onboarding financial planning advisors and asset managers, thereby boosting the growth of the segment. The pandemic is also driving the demand for planning to build savings in preparation for future emergencies. Financial wellness tends to be a way of life for most workers in the US with monetary challenges expecting not to go away anytime soon, making the market a lucrative one.

Large businesses are blending physical, mental, and financial programs to provide holistic support to their employees. The concept of "health meets wealth" is gaining immense traction in the market because both are largely interdependent and healthcare costs are continuing to rise as well. However, a major challenge for large-sized companies is that almost 35% of workers have no clue that their employer offered benefits in the financial wellness realm. Participation rates are often low as well. The segment is expected to witness the growth due to the growing realization among employers to observe the link between financially well employees and how they work - aka employee productivity. Nearly 40% of employers are thus offering wellness programs with about 30% citing "differentiation from other employers" as the second most important reason.

Although the growth rate of personalized financial wellness programs is expected to grow at the highest rate, online/digital wellness programs are not much beyond.

Employees are asking for one-on-one interactions more than ever in order to help navigate finances, which increasing advisers to meet employees regularly, thereby driving up revenues of one-on-one programs.

Workplace financial wellness programs in healthcare companies have been going strong in the US because the industry is specifically susceptible to disadvantageous outcomes due to workforce volatility in a system, where reliable and consistent care is a priority. The Gen Z and millennial workers are driving this market, showing interest in budgeting, investment advice, debt management, student loan repayment, retirement income planning, college expense planning, special needs planning, and protection.

Consumer tools are gaining popularity as employees increasingly want solutions to their grievances in an instant. Therefore, there is an increasing demand for wellness services that include accountability prompts and personalized delivery of content.

Technology is increasingly being used to optimize financial health holistically and seamlessly integrate it into the employee's daily life and schedule.
