Employee Lodging: What are you really paying for?

Is cost the only important factor when booking facilities for your employees?

Simply put, no. Other concerns, like facility quality, are also vital, both to reducing your costs and ensuring the health and safety of your employees.

CrewFacilities.com maintains strict policies when choosing their preferred providers of hotels, lodges, apartments and camps.  We perform extensive Health, Safety & Environmental (“HS&E”) verifications prior to placement and, if the facility has a history of, or currently does not pass any one of the following criteria, we won’t refer them to our clients.

Our inspections include:
