    When the physicians and health workers at Baptist Health tell you to smile, they’re not trying to slip something past you. The health system, which has about a dozen hospitals, 23,000 employees, and 4,000 affiliated doctors, literally has a program dubbed a “Day of Smiles.” That kind of effort to promote happiness via local school counseling and therapy sessions, as well as charitable medical procedures and a long-standing partnership with the Big Brothers Big Sisters School to Work program, explains why Baptist Health’s workers describe “a sense of great gratification and fulfillment” that comes from working with the organization. It doesn’t hurt that the firm’s internal hiring rate for leadership positions is nearly 75%. Read the Great Place to Work review.
