Can you imagine hiring somebody for your business without knowing a single thing about them? You don’t know anything about their past, their experiences, or their skills; you don’t even see their resume before taking them on. You only know that they signed up to be considered for a job with you.
Joe Kenner is the president and CEO of Greyston in Yonkers, New York, a company known for its unique Open Hiring model, where no resume is needed to apply, and employees are chosen from a list they are placed on when they sign up.
Rebooting Capitalism is a podcast that digs into why traditional capitalism is broken and what people are doing to fix it. In this episode, hear more about Greyston’s open hiring model, what it entails, and how its inclusive approach is a shining example of how business can be a force for good. Joe Kenner joins Jennifer Cantero and shares why he believes that open hiring is a revolutionary, radical new way of looking at work and the future of it and what he would say to employers who are hesitant about this type of hiring.
