Episode Summary

In today’s episode, I interview SJ Sacchetti the CEO of Cleo. Cleo’s mission is to transform the perception and experience of being a working family from a disadvantage to an edge in America’s workforce. Cleo is a family benefit offered to prospective and current parents through their employers. Cleo’s clients include major companies such as Pinterest, salesforce, PepsiCo, and Upwork. Cleo brings working families the support they need from family planning to parenting children up to age 12 with mental health support, career coaching, parenting advice, family health navigation, and more through one-on-one guidance with a coach, personalized content, and an intuitive app. In this episode, we not only speak about the need for employers to support working parents but also how the pandemic has disrupted what we think of as work/life balance. Platforms like Cleo are needed now more than ever not only to maintain business success but also to keep parents and children healthy and happy. Learn more at www.hicleo.com Enjoy the episode!
