Have you thought about throwing your hat into the corporate wellness ring? Perhaps now is the right time to get involved.
According to the research company IBISWorld, the U.S. gross domestic product is expected to rise 3.9% per year over the next few years. That means corporations could be allocating extra funding toward health and wellness program- ming, suggests the research organization. IBISWorld believes that, as a result, the corporate fitness and wellness industry will see marked financial growth. Here’s a rundown of the findings:
- Corporate physical health screening service prices are expected to rise 2.3% annually from 2014 to 2017.
- Corporate gym membership costs will increase at an average annual rate of 2.2% from 2014 to 2017.
- Costs for corporate wellness service providers will rise 2.5% annually through 2017. If you’re interested in breaking into a career in corporate wellness, check out
