WebPT's Six Culture Commitments

Here at WebPT, we care a lot about company culture. In fact, we wrote the book on it. Well, maybe not the book, but we did write a book on it. We’re talking about our Team Commitment handbook, which details each of the six traits that define our company—the oil that keeps all of our gears in sync and moving smoothly, so to speak. But the effects of these tenets extend well beyond the walls of WebPT. Adhering to them helps us provide exceptional customer service, which in turn helps our Members achieve greatness in therapy practice. As such, we thought you might be interested in the laws governing the WebPT world. So, here’s a rundown of the six qualities we strive for every day at WebPT:

1. Service – Create Raving Fans

Our Members are the center of our universe. We are here to help them succeed, which is why we are so committed to listening attentively to their concerns and doing our darndest to come up with solutions.

2. Accountability – F Up; Own Up

Passing the buck is a cardinal sin around here. Pointing fingers only gets in the way of providing the best possible service to our Members. Yes, we’re human—just like you—and sometimes we make mistakes. But when we do, we won’t rest until we fix it. In other words, you can always count on us to make things right.

3. Attitude – Possess True Grit

Things don’t always go according to plan, and sometimes you’ve just got to grit your teeth and roll with the punches. As a rehab therapist, you know exactly what we’re talking about—we’re willing to bet your day rarely shakes out the way you think it will. Life gets messy sometimes, but you don’t let it get you down, and neither should we. Like you, we’ve got passion for what we do—and we’ll be here for you come hell or high water.

4. Personality – Be Minty

Only the infamous Grumpy Cat can get away with rocking perma-frown. We’re all about the spunky, the perky, the freshy fresh-y. Spirit is contagious, and we know our Members appreciate our service-with-a-smile approach.

5. Work Ethic – Be Rock Solid

You take pride in the amazing patient outcomes you achieve every day in your practice; we take pride in helping you be better in business so you can get back to focusing on those patients. We know you’ll do whatever it takes to help your patients meet their therapy goals, and that’s why we promise to do whatever it takes to support you.

6. Community Outreach – Give Back

WebPT wouldn’t have gotten to where it is today without a little help from some very generous folks, and we feel it’s our duty to pay it forward. Success feels good, but helping others find the path to success feels even better. So, we volunteer. We donate. We fundraise. We support community growth and entrepreneurialism. And we have a great time doing it.

Well, there you have it: a crash-course in WebPT culture. What do you think? Does your practice incorporate any of these guidelines in its operations?

    5 Steps to Stay Present

    I first started thinking about the power of presence as I looked at the pile of mail that had accumulated over the past two weeks while I was traveling. It resonated again when I considered the new exercise routine I’ve started to lose some body fat that somehow just showed up. But it really hit home when one of my team members asked to speak to me about something that was bothering her. To me, this issue …

    Second That Emotion: How Emotional Intelligence Creates Loyal Patients

    If you’re a fan of “The Office,” you’re undoubtedly familiar with Michael Scott’s cringe-inducing behavior. While his awkward, emotional outbursts make for great comedy, if you had to work with someone like Michael, you probably wouldn’t stick around very long. And if that person were a rehab therapist, his or her patients probably wouldn’t stick around very long, either. That’s because—as funny as Steve Carell's iconic character is—Michael is impetuous and emotional (and not in a good …

    The Story Behind WebPT’s Culture Commitments

    Company culture can be a tough thing to define. After all, it’s a set of values, beliefs, and styles shared, felt, and propagated by each and every staff member. Ideally, it’s something that develops organically based on the mix of people and personalities present in your office. But as companies grow and change, it’s easy for that founding culture to get lost in the shuffle. So, when WebPT started growing, we knew it was important to preserve …
