As part of our benefits here at Penten we offer Sonder. Sonder is a confidential support service that provides our employees and their immediate family members 24/7 access to wellbeing and safety features. This includes a self-help library, location-based safety support and confidential on-demand support from their expert team of medical, mental health and safety professionals through call and chat.

What do Sonder do?

Receive real-time safety notifications wherever you are. Access in-app safety features such as ‘Track my journey’ and ‘Check on me’.

Bumped head? Sick child? Cough that won’t go away? Whatever your concern, our health experts are ready to help.

Mental health
If you’re not feeling yourself or you are concerned for a colleague, our team is ready to listen and support.

How do they do it?

If you’re not feeling yourself, or concerned for a colleague, our team is ready to listen and help when you’re ready.

Safety and wellbeing isn’t a 9-5 need, that’s why we’re available 24/7 at the touch of a button.

We treat every individual as exactly that…an individual, because one size fits none!

Sonder is accredited by the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards (ACHS), so you know you’re receiving the highest quality of care.

Who can access?

All Penten employees and their immediate families.

We want you to enjoy being at work, and take time to have fun with your colleagues and relax when you can.

What makes us come to work every day? The work we do and who we do it with.

Chris C Software Developer

Six weeks after I started, I went on personal leave and in the months that followed, I was unsure whether I’d be able to continue my professional career. Because of the Penten family, I was able to take small steps back into life again. They enabled me to find a way to function and utilise my mind, while fully supporting me and my family the whole time I was away.
