As extensively reported to HCA members, New York’s Workforce Investment Organization (WIO) program began in 2018 as an initiative to retrain, recruit and retain health care workers in the long-term care sector. IHA-WIO and its Caring Gene® campaign are one of eight WIOs providing this service throughout New York State. All programs offered by the IHA WIO are free of charge to long term care organizations.

Please visit the Caring Gene® website to learn more about its offerings and look for a new website soon that will allow providers to post job and training listings via a secure portal while job seekers will be able to apply for opportunities directly on the site.
