The PT WORK Force initiative of the PTDA Foundation announced that voluntary contributions from companies and individuals in 2021 reached $250,000 to aid the development of programs to support the recruitment and retention efforts of PT/MC companies.

“Despite the challenges that emerged during the past 20 months, PT WORK Force consistently produced quality programs and resources to bolster the endeavors of those seeking to advance the PT/MC workforce,” said Keith Nowak, 2021 PTDA Foundation President, MPT Drives, Inc.

With nearly 40 percent of PT/MC companies lacking a dedicated HR professional, managing recruitment and retention becomes a secondary job function for other staff.

PT WORK Force presents employers with a range of opportunities to assist them—from insightful and relevant content on PTWORKForceBlog.org and webinars on topics like stress management to an engaging Industry Summit presentation and panel on finding right-fit employees.

“Wherever there is a demand, PT WORK Force addresses it,” said Nowak. “One of the greatest needs today is counsel on how to onboard employees virtually. PT WORK Force answered by creating a guide to assist employers. Likewise, employers needing assistance drafting job postings can find examples through PT WORK Force resources. The PTDA Foundation continues to tap into the pulse of what PT/MC companies require to stock their HR toolbox.”
