The WOW Workforce Development Board works in collaboration with local elected officials, economic development corporations, businesses, and the community to address macroeconomic workforce issues in the three-county area. It is committed to finding workforce solutions through long-term planning and timely responses to the changing economy.
Through strategic planning, feedback from our clients, and conversations with partners, we identified an opportunity to create a one-stop information portal – The Workforce Network – to better serve our clients and communities. The Workforce Network brings together information on workforce development-related community resources in one easy to navigate portal. The goal of The Workforce Network is to make it easier for individuals to locate information on resources as well as showcase all of the great community-based programs and services in Waukesha, Ozaukee, and Washington Counties.
The Waukesha-Ozaukee-Washington (WOW) Workforce Development Board is one of Wisconsin’s eleven regional Boards originally established by the Workforce Investment Act of 1998, which has been reauthorized and renamed the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), to address local economic workforce issues in Waukesha, Ozaukee, and Washington Counties. WIOA is designed to help job seekers access employment, education, training, and support services to succeed in the labor market and to match employers with the skilled workers they need to compete in the global economy.
