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 employees navigate parenthood with flexible work policies.
Our carefully designed hiring experience embraces every job candidate.
To celebrate, Sojern explored how to practice anti-racism in the workplace.
“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!”
"Sojern and Roiback have a great relationship and work together to maximise our direct bookings. We have regular check-ins to review performance, and both Sojern and Roiback give us insights and recommendations for improvement. And the results speak for themselves! Their collaboration has been very helpful for us."
"I’ve definitely seen increased bookings. In fact, January through March is usually a quiet period for us, but this year, leisure bookings are double what we normally see, and this is due to Sojern. As a small hotel, I really value the relationship we've built with the Sojern team. You can tell when someone is genuine and willing to work with you, and I feel that with Sojern."
"I worked with Sojern at a previous hotel and had a great experience, so I knew I wanted to partner with them when I joined Ticino Hotels Group. Their Pay on the Stay package gives us a cleaner, more reliable business model to help with our direct booking strategy, and we’ve seen the results. To anyone considering Sojern for their digital marketing needs—I say go for it!"
