What is Nessle?
Nessle is a digital health platform that connects parents with experts for tailored online guidance on topics throughout every stage of parenting. Our subscription-based application helps parents seamlessly connect with our network of trained Nessle specialists for tele-support sessions ranging from 1-on-1 coaching calls to learning webinars, support groups and more.
Our community of Nessle-approved experts includes trained parenting specialists, life coaches, doulas, sleep consultants, lactation and nutrition counselors, wellness coaches, and more. Our experts consult with clients on topics ranging from navigating fertility, surrogacy, and adoption all the way through topics relevant to parents of teens, such as social media health and preparing your high-schooler for college. All experts are vetted by Nessle through a comprehensive interview and training process to ensure an inclusive, evidence-based, high-touch experience for all users.
How does this actually work?
Nessle partners with employers and benefits brokers like you to offer Nessle subscription plans as an ongoing benefit to support the parents in your workforce, municipality, or health system. Just choose a subscription level and we'll conduct an onboarding survey of your workforce to enroll all those eligible and interested in your organization’s plan. We will invoice you monthly via QuickBooks on a per-month-per-user basis and will send you quarterly reports with aggregate, totally anonymous data on utilization rates and the return on your investment, in terms of workers’ satisfaction with our program. We also stay deeply engaged with your workforce, offering workshops and participating in your wellness and benefits programming throughout the year.
Amid the “Great Resignation” and the war for talent in the workforce today, companies are increasingly aware of the need to support the parents in their workforce and communities, to prevent burnout, and to promote work-life balance, and there are lots of great choices out there for ways to do just that. So why Nessle? First, our open marketplace of experts helps us recruit a diverse network of parenting professionals working on flexible schedules across the globe; for example, rather than just one or two “generalists” on our staff from each expert category, we can connect parents with dozens of experts within each specialization–each of whom is able to “go niche” with specialized expertise on a vast variety of parenting challenges and concerns. It also means that we have experts available 24/7, covering multiple time zones, schedule-able within the hour in many cases, and covering diverse languages and affinity groups.
Next, you’ll be working with a company that’s pioneering the future of more supported parenthood online. Our Q&A portal format “flips the script” for parents seeking support. Rather than sifting through pages upon pages of possible experts with whom to connect, Nessle parents just submit their question on our HIPAA-compliant portal, and within 24 hours, they’ll be contacted by a qualified expert who is ready to connect with that family for a 1-on-1 video call to discuss their challenge or concern. It’s all done flexibly, on the parents’ own time and turf. In addition to this Q&A service, Nessle offers its subscribers full access to a resource library with evidence-based information across all stages of parenthood, regular live support groups, as well as topical webinars and workshopping sessions that will help parents feel balanced and supported.
Finally, Nessle understands that rolling out a new program or benefit can be an exciting but daunting challenge, and we are fully committed to helping you introduce Nessle in a buzzworthy, enthusiasm-generating way, by leading demos for your team members and workshops on topics relevant to working parents, not just during open enrollment but throughout the year.
Sounds great–what do I do now?
Schedule a 20-minute demo with our team so that we can understand your challenges, show you the platform in action, share data about our success rates with other companies, and consult with you about the subscription tier that feels right for your organization. This demo is truly for customer research–it’s not a sales pitch! After the demo, if the fit feels right, you sign with us for a three-month minimum subscription for a minimum of one employee, and we take over the rollout from there!
Do you offer a free trial?
Yes! In order for you to experience what it’s like for parents to interact with Nessle, we offer each HR department or brokerage a one-month concierge-level subscription, free of cost (one per organization). We are so confident that you’ll love your experience with Nessle that you’ll be eager to introduce it to the rest of your workforce.
