The Northwest Wisconsin Workforce Investment Board (NWWIB) has hired a new project manager for the Health Career and Regional Employment (HealthCARE) Project. Andrea Huggenvik will work with employers in the healthcare industry to fill current and projected job openings in high growth occupations through an on-the-job training program. She comes from higher education student affairs administration. Huggenvik brings years of experience in training and development and working with millennials.

The HealthCARE assists private for-profit and private non-profit employers to offset the cost of bringing on a new worker. Employers taking part in the HealthCARE Project must commit to employ participants on the first day on-the-job training begins. During the training period, HealthCARE employers, dependent on their size, can receive up to 50 to 90 percent wage reimbursement for retaining an eligible HealthCARE Project participant. Training consists of a period of 40 hours per week or less with a maximum reimbursement rate up to $5,821 per new hire.
