FYZICAL Recognized as Finalist in 4th Annual Franchising@WORK Employee Engagement Study by Franchise Business Review


FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Centers, the country's fastest-growing physical therapy franchise with 500 open centers across 44 states, was recently recognized as a finalist in the 4th annual Franchising@WORK 2023 Employee Engagement Report & Awards hosted by Franchise Business Review. The study is an independent industry-wide survey of employee satisfaction among franchise employees and celebrates franchise organizations with the highest employee engagement.

FYZICAL was recognized as a finalist in this year's awards. FBR collected data from 180 franchise organizations, including 6,000 employees, representing 40% corporate and 60% unit-level employees. Participants were asked about company culture, job satisfaction, and engagement within the franchise sector.

FYZICAL was recognized for high employee well-being, impact on retention, and positive diversity, equity, and inclusion. 

"When I think of FYZICAL, I think of people being connected," said Brian Belmont, Chief Executive Officer at FYZICAL. "Our clinicians being connected to their patients, our corporate staff being connected to the owners and their staff, and the overall leadership, connected to the brand."

FBR conducted the Franchising@WORK Employee Engagement Benchmarking Study to help franchise companies understand how employee satisfaction, well-being, and culture compare to others. The research revealed key insights into job satisfaction, employee well-being, and workforce trends.
