Power your people and profit.

Did you know that a direct correlation exists between staff wellness and the success of your organization? Formula Z knows. The Formula Z Trade Name was, after all, founded by health care practitioner, Ben McCormack, the owner and president of Northern Physical Therapy. In any business or organization there exists a balance between gains and losses. PhysicalTherapy's patients state that they are "greatly" improved! We even have testimonials to back it.

This balance often runs on tight lines in even the most well managed facilities. The two variables management tends to think about are supply and demand. If the demand for widgets exists, and the organization can supply them at a reasonable price, then the organization should remain profitable, right? It’s as simple as X and Y. However, managers and owners have experienced otherwise, and we know that it’s rarely this simple.

There is usually a “Z” variable in the mix. The Z variable siphons skilled labor and money out of the organization in the form of injury, lost time, poor conditioning, low morale, faulty ergonomic layout, and incomplete training processes. Many organizations find themselves punished by the effects of an overwhelming Z variable, feeling like they have little control over lost timeincidence, bad decisions, and their own “bad luck.” The Truth: Your company can do better.Formula Z guides your team to greater success by implementing proven methodology tocontrol the Z variable. Formula Z helps you better your organization by building a stronger, more able workforce enabling you to contain your losses and boost your business! Formula Zis here to help.
