No, I don't think wellbeing needs to be hyphenated.

My spellchecker (or is that spell-checker?) accepts both spellings.

Never mind, any spelling of "well-being" is better than "wellness" which OED calls "rather a nonce-wd" . Using it would mark you out as a Duolingo addict.

"Wellness " is infesting medical jargon recently.
