PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--WebPT, the market-leading rehab therapy software platform, was recently honored with a 2018 BBB International Torch Award for Ethics, making it one of just four companies across the country to be recognized for best practices in leadership character and organizational ethics by the Better Business Bureau Institute for Marketplace Trust. Honorees were celebrated at an awards ceremony held in conjunction with the International Assembly of Better Business Bureaus in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on Sept. 17.
“Being recognized as a BBB International Torch Award for Ethics winner is a tremendous achievement for our team,” said Dr. Heidi Jannenga, PT, DPT, ATC, president and co-founder of WebPT. “Our mission is rooted in serving a deeper purpose, and that philosophy centers on our people-first culture. Our team adheres to the tenets of Conscious Capitalism, a business philosophy that promotes leading with intention and giving all stakeholders — employees, vendors, partners and customers — a voice in shaping the future of the company. As a result, we have been able to maintain a 95 percent customer retention rate since launching in 2008.”
Award winners and finalists were selected by an independent panel of judges who evaluated candidates based on leadership commitment to ethical practices; communication of ethical practices; leadership practices to unify the organization; organizational commitment to performance management practices; organizational commitment to ethical human resource practices; and organizational commitment to the community.
“This year’s winners provide proof that success in business does not happen by accident and is not accomplished through short-cuts,” said Melissa Trumpower, executive director of the BBB Institute for Marketplace Trust. “It requires a commitment and dedication to ethical leadership, to fairness in the marketplace, and to honesty and trustworthiness in day-to-day operations. Those are the very hallmarks of this year’s BBB International Torch Award honorees.”
The WebPT team focuses heavily on nurturing and preserving their culture. To that end, they place great emphasis on hiring for cultural fit and cultivating talent from within by providing training, professional development and advancement opportunities. Thanks in part to this commitment to culture, people and serving a deeper purpose, WebPT has earned numerous honors for its contributions in healthcare, technology and the community.
