Flexi Fridays Improve Culture
Flexi-Friday enables employees to focus on personal development.
Friday’s have always been my favorite day, but since joining Sojern they have become more special. At Sojern we offer Flexi Fridays, meaning a day without emails or meetings and you have the ability to wrap up your work day around lunchtime. This gives me the opportunity to catch up on work, spend time on personal development, clean out my inbox, and prepare for a longer weekend. It allows me to focus on a bigger project without any distractions. Employees can spend their Fridays training or working on presentations, getting ahead of their schedule for the week ahead, reflecting on learnings they had throughout the week, and checking in on goals to ensure they’re on track.
On a personal level, I can spend time with friends and family or with my husband without hiring a babysitter as our son is still at school. The highlight of Flexi Friday is being able to collect my son from school. When he asks “Mummy are you working?” I can happily say “No - Mummy has finished for the day!” We can spend time together creating memories–from playing with Legos to jumping on the trampoline, or learning to count with sweets. What’s more, Sojern is a company that specializes in travel and encourages employees to take vacations and recharge, so you can use that extra half day to plan a weekend getaway (and even add on a few days with unlimited paid time off).
Flexi Friday is such a lovely day to ease into the weekend with a happy and relaxed mindset. It’s one of the many reasons I appreciate Sojern’s culture and encourage others to join the team. I am a People Operations Director working out of London and we’ve got several open positions to fill at a fast-growing global company.

“With any product and service, you have to spend time and resources to grow your customer base. Sojern provides us with an extremely effective way to increase our direct bookings and maximize guest lifetime value. The platform delivers impressive results, achieved with minimal time and resources invested by the team. It's a great product and service that I never have to sell to ownership–the results speak for themselves. Sojern seamlessly integrates into our marketing distribution, freeing us up to focus on other initiatives. When a program performs this well, I know we're making the right marketing investments.”
“Sojern is the top performing conversion partner that we've run for travel specific activities. I would definitely recommend investigating how to work with Sojern to my agency peers with travel clients. Their team is really proactive, and very quick on everything we need. We value the great quality in terms of reports and support the team provides, and on top of that, we also see activities perform incredibly well. So clearly, there's a lot going on in the back end to make sure we're hitting and meeting all of Sandals’ KPIs.”
“We were seeking a partner that could help us increase our direct booking share and reach, as well as overcome seasonality challenges. We looked at Sojern, which was very well recommended, and I can definitely say we made the right choice. Working with Sojern is so easy and reliable and the entire process is incredibly smooth and straightforward. Since joining Sojern we consistently convert new guests looking to visit the Caribbean, regardless of seasonality.”
“Working with Sojern, it’s not just a cookie-cutter solution, as Sojern listens to our needs and recommends what’s best for our hotel. We have someone to bounce ideas off of, and Sojern gives us a higher-level perspective on how we can get the best value for our investment.”
“We love the simplicity of the solution and how clearly we can see results. The technology works so well that it leaves us to do our other day-to-day jobs. We are seeing increased interest in our superior and deluxe rooms as a result, which is improving the overall average booking value. I think we will be long-time customers for as long as Sojern continues to perform the way it does today!”
