“Gympass more than doubles the number of employees engaged with wellness, thanks to the breadth of our global partner network and the attractive prices of our plans that cost 30-50% less than traditional gym memberships.

Prioritizing wellbeing is more important to employees than ever, according to Gympass’s 2024 State of Work-Life Wellness report. The vast majority (87%) of employees would consider leaving a company that does not focus on employee wellbeing, while 93% value wellbeing as much as their salaries. Companies are investing in wellbeing to meet these employee needs and drive business performance: Gympass customers see workforces that are 40% less likely to turnover and can save their companies up to 35% on healthcare costs.
