The Challenge

Marley Spoon, one of Australia's biggest meal-kit brands, faced the challenge of providing the right employment support solutions to their rapidly growing team. With a diverse workforce, consisting of office and production staff members, and evolving work environment due to COVID-19, they needed a comprehensive solution to address the health and wellbeing needs of their staff. Furthermore, Marley Spoon required a solution that could require multilingual, round-the-clock support for both employees and their families.

The Solution

To meet these needs, Marley Spoon launched Sonder in 2021 and saw strong results from the start, with significant staff engagement and use of the service. Here are some leading factors of the partnership's success:

Real-time support
Sonder's in-app chat function allows direct connection to experts, providing fast and convenient support with a 24/7 team. It has become the main channel for Marley Spoon employees, fostering trust and removing barriers to access for those seeking assistance.

Language accessibility
Marley Spoon's diverse and multicultural workforce, including many non-native English speakers, benefits from Sonder's support in their preferred languages. All members are now able to communicate their needs to an expert team of support professionals for guidance and support in the language they feel most comfortable with.

Care beyond the workplace
Marley Spoon extends support beyond the workplace by offering Sonder's 24/7 services to employees and their families. This comprehensive approach promotes the wellbeing of both team members and their loved ones.

"Sonder fundamentally enhances accessibility to care for Marley Spoon's staff by leveraging technology, 24/7 support, and timely data insights which drive meaningful business decisions."
