Introducing New Medical Travel Benefits for Employees
We changed our medical benefits to include a medical travel benefit.
With the recent Supreme Court ruling regarding Roe v. Wade, some of our U.S. employees are losing access to healthcare services previously covered in our plan. As a company, we will stand by the healthcare services provided through our benefits programs for Sojernistas around the world. We want to ensure all U.S employees continue to have access to the same level of covered services without having to pay more for their benefits depending on where they live.
The health and safety of each of our employees and their families are core to Sojern’s philosophy, and thus we will continue to provide access to comprehensive healthcare in the U.S., irrespective of the State our employees live in or where they may need to go to receive the best healthcare. To that end, all U.S. Sojern employees and their families will continue to have access to comprehensive healthcare through our group health plan. In addition, we changed our medical benefits for our U.S. employees to include a medical travel benefit to be used when traveling for medical treatment becomes necessary for employees or a dependent, regardless of the medical service needed. Employees have been granted a stipend in medical travel benefits to access healthcare services that are not available locally, which can be used on flights, taxis, fuel and lodging when traveling for a medical procedure.
We believe that people should be free to live according to their moral and ethical code, within the law. Sojern values diversity and inclusion, and we are proud to have built a culture of inclusiveness over the years. We have worked hard to create a safe environment for our employees to work in—built on mutual respect—where everyone feels welcomed, valued and empowered to speak.
After all, we are one team, and we feel this decision aligns with our ethos and core values. As a company, we will continue to monitor healthcare access for our employees globally, and make adjustments as needed over time to provide for all Sojernistas and their families.

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!”
