The Philadelphia Inquirer, the Daily News and Philly.com recognized Excel Physical Therapy and Fitness as one of Greater Philadelphia039#s “Top Workplaces” in 2010. Excel received top honors for their commitment to its employees, ranking 12th among small companies with less than 100 employees. The Top Workplaces program honors the best employers in the Philadelphia region based solely on the survey responses of from employees.
A third-party research company specializing in workplace analysis was enlisted to rank area companies according to employee and employer assessments. Confidential results were measured based on responses to questions concerning six areas of the workplace: direction, execution, career, conditions, managers, and pay and benefits. The survey also solicited descriptions of how the company has dealt with issues like managing within the economic downturn, maintaining workplace diversity and rewarding good work. Excel039#s Top Workplace profile features some of the survey039#s findings such as employee responses and Excel039#s high scores in the categories of direction, execution, career, managers and conditions.
“Since Excel039#s inception 20 years ago, our philosophy has been to hire and advance the most knowledgeable and highly trained physical therapists in order provide excellent patient care and create a positive work environment,” says Joe Ruhl, PT, ATC co-owner and president of Excel Physical Therapy and Fitness. “This recognition from the Top Workplaces program is truly an honor that we accept because of the great people who work here and our commitment to providing them with continuing education opportunities so we consistently deliver the best care.”
The list ranks the region039#s top 100 workplaces, which consists of the 25 highest-ranked large employers (more than 400 employees), 35 midsize organizations (100 to 400 employees) and 40 small firms (100 employees or less). The required response rate required was at least 30 percent. More information about the Top Workplaces program can be found on the program039#shomepage on Philly.com.
