We are so pleased to share that Greyston Bakery president and chief executive officer, Mike Brady, has been announced as a keynote speaker at Conscious Capitalism 2017. The ninth annual conference—promoting business as force for good to elevate humanity-—will be held in Philadelphia, April 18-20.
As the first registered benefit corporation in the state of New York, Greyston Bakery is an exemplary company practicing Conscious Capitalism. Greyston is heralded by consumers for its decadent brownies, which are also the featured ingredient in Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Fudge Brownie and Half-Baked™ ice cream flavors. However, it is the company’s innovative Open Hiring™ Model that is setting the bar for what it means to be a responsible business in the 21st century.
As Brady explains it, “Open Hiring fundamentally disrupts traditional HR practices by investing in bringing people in rather spending to screen people out. Open Hiring creates opportunities for people who have often been excluded, filling jobs without judging applicants. No questions asked. Period.”
Brady’s keynote will demonstrate how Open Hiring can help businesses, communities and local government better work together to reverse generations of poverty and unemployment. Representatives from Greyston will also lead one of the conference practicums on how to implement Open Hiring into existing businesses.
We hope to see you in Philadelphia, April 18-20. For more information, please visit http://www.consciouscapitalism.org/cc2017.
