Welcome handshake

Welcome!

What a simple word, yet just hearing it makes you feel good. Now consider travelers who regularly move from one facility to another every 13 weeks. I know from my own experience and hearing from other travelers that receiving a genuine welcome when starting a new assignment can make a huge difference.
