Now back to our spotlighted team, Travel Experience. This team is a free resource that was created to make the traveling process more convenient for LRS Healthcare’s travelers.

Whatever you fancy, a quiet hiking trail, nightlife, or sporting events, our Travel Experience team listens to your needs and researches your assignment destination. What’s the fun of traveling if you can’t maintain the same lifestyle as back home?

There is so much to explore in a new city, and we want our travelers to be able to check those boxes on their city bucket list.

Helpful Resources and More
You may be thinking this sounds similar to an HR Department or LRS Healthcare’s Benefits team, but the Travel Experience team is truly dedicated to ensuring travel logistics and accommodations are arranged so you don’t have to stress over the details. Every traveler and their assignment experience are unique, and our well-rounded staff is prepared to handle any circumstance or question you may have for an enjoyable experience both before leaving and while on assignment.

The goal of the Travel Experience team is to help travelers locate comfortable accommodations while on assignment with us. Currently, this team consists of seven driven employees that are each trained to assist travelers with accommodations and travel. To aid in this process, LRS Healthcare offers company discounts and travel resources for all travelers. If you would like options for travel and accommodations, you can fill out a housing request form, flight request form, or rental car request form. All you need to do is reach out to your Account Manager for these forms. (They’ll also be accessible in LRS Connect starting in 2023.)

Once the form is accurately filled out and submitted, our team can assist you with the travel services you may need.

For fun activities to do in large cities, our department has a partnership with Travel42 to compile destination guides for fun activities, upcoming events, travel news, hotel reviews, and more! If you’re looking for fun adventures to make your journey worthwhile, our team can now send recommendations with just a few quick clicks.
