Colors of Success: Radical Inclusion Through Open Hiring


Greyston Bakery, located in Yonkers, NY, is known for making the brownies for Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. They’re also known for acquiring their talent through a groundbreaking new practice called Open Hiring, which accepts any applicant, without background checks or interviews, through a simple waiting list.

Right now, there are many people in Greater Rochester who can’t find work because of a criminal history, limited education or qualifications, lack of work experience, or no job skills. Learn how Open Hiring can help provide opportunities for these individuals, diversify your workforce, and allow you to shift investments and human resources into training, learning and development, benefits and employee support.
