PT Management Support Systems is conducting a webinar on developing and implementing a bonus plan for physical and occupational therapists on Wednesday April 19 from noon-1 pm EST. To register, go to PTM Webinars.


This webinar will address the pros and cons of implementing a productivity-based bonus plan for PT/OT providers and how to create and implement a bonus plan.
More specifically, the following questions will be answered:
What is the typical compensation package for PT/OT providers and how does a bonus plan fit into this package?
What risks need to be addressed before and after implementing a bonus plan?
Should bonuses be determined on a group or individual basis?
What factors should be used to determine bonus amounts?
How often should bonuses be paid? Monthly? Quarterly? Annually?
Should PT/OT support staff members be included in the bonus plan?
Should PT/OT Directors be bonused differently and, if so, how?
What are examples of bonus plans that work?
