PHOENIX–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#fortune–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

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,

technology and the community.
