    • Recruitment and retention of physical therapist is one of the major problems facing mangers in the hospital settings therefore several programs have been instituted in hospital PT programs to enhance motivation and remain in this setting.
    • 83. Shortage in PT had caused starting salaries to increase dramatically. At the same time that compensation of salaries for more experienced PT is leading to low morale.
    • 84. Incentive Programs are designed
    • 85. This Incentive Programs attract workers because they can pace themselves and know the financial rewards that they will earn with specific level of output on their part.
    • 86. Several type of incentive programs are as follows:
    • 87. Individual worker
    • 88. In these systems target productivity levels within a set of quality a guidelines are established and the individual workers are paid predetermined variable amounts of money for achieving specific targets.
    • 89. This is the most easily administered and he most common incentive program
    • 90. Profit sharing
    • 91. Determined by a pre-arranged formula.
