    Nearly half of all jobs at this healthcare system, with five hospitals in the Atlanta area, are filled through internal promotion. Not only that, more than 70% of all promotions into leadership roles go to women. The WellStar Career Development Center serves every team member, clinical and non-clinical: full-time hourly employees take an average of 64 hours of training per year; for salaried employees, it’s 120. “They have seen my potential, and they have allowed me to take on more responsibilities in each role I have held in my department which led to a promotion I didn’t even know existed,” one employee told us.
