About this Episode
There are ways to grow a great business, support the staff, put the members first, and still continue to expand, ALL while focusing on great company culture! WebPT is doing all of these things!
We know this past year has not been great to all companies, but we love to hear when companies are growing during the pandemic, making the most of it, and creating something new from it all. This conversation with Dr. Heidi Jannenga highlighted some of the amazing work that WebPT has done over the past year, including creating programs that support the members and the patients in getting the PT support they need, and making change beyond the state with big decisions.
Along with the great work that Heidi is doing with WebPT, we are happy to highlight her for her support on the board for CCAZ. We look forward to what this year will bring with her support to the chapter.
WebPT is s great example of a company that was an “unconscious conscious capitalist.” They were already doing all of the things that aligned with Conscious Capitalism before they knew there was a name to go along with it. There are still numerous other companies out there like that too. This is a great episode to listen to if you are working for or leading a company that aligns with the four tenants of conscious capitalism but haven’t really gotten involved yet. You can hear about the ways that WebPT aligned with Conscious Capitalism and transitioned to getting involved.
