Anthony Weiner said : "this is a way to make good on that promise and expand it,” said Gibb. What is Greyston? Greyston was founded in 1982 by Bernie Glassman, a Jewish aeronautical engineer turned Zen Buddhist monk turned social entrepreneur in the Riverdale section of the Bronx. “Bernie and the Zen Buddhist community in Riverdale were supporting themselves financially by baking cakes,” said Kenner. “It was a time of high unemployment and homelessness in the area and so Bernie would literally pull people off the streets and say, ‘Hey, you want to work? You can learn a skill and we'll pay you.’ ” The establishment moved to Yonkers in 1986 and hit its stride when Glassman met Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, the founders of Ben & Jerry’s and quickly came up with a plan to work together. Greyston would provide the chocolate cookies that would go into an ice cream sandwich. “Unfortunately, the product did not survive the shipping process, so instead of having these chocolate cookies, it was just kind of a big slab of cookie stuff,” said Kenner. “And then someone said, you know, if we just put these things in chocolate ice cream … and that's how chocolate fudge brownie was born”. From there, the partnership has gone on to produce hits such as Half Baked, Brownie Batter Core, Justice ReMix'd (to bring attention to criminal justice reform) and Netflix & Chill'd. How open hiring works. Open hiring does not mean a lack of standards, said Kenner. At the foundation’s workforce development center, workers are trained to do a variety of jobs from security guard, training, building and construction trade safety, sanitization for the new COVID-19 environment and customer service. Once hired, workers go through an apprenticeship program for six to nine months, depending on performance. St. John's Hospital, a large employer in Yonkers, has partnered with Greyston over past years for an assortment of positions, including security guard and landscaping. Joe Furman, who was released from prison last year, was referred to Greyston Workforce Development by the Westchester Reentry Taskforce and his parole officer. Furman became an apprentice in the Greyston Rangers transitional employment program and now works with the Greyston Rangers and as a member of the groundskeeping team at St. John's Hospital. “When I was released, I was worried about survival. And how I would feed my family,” he said. Furman said he looks at the two jobs he currently has as an opportunity to show how dedicated he is to work and turn his life around. “I just know that I can’t fail,” he said. “Folks here are held accountable in terms of attendance, to good manufacturing practices and all the standards that we have to adhere to,” Kenner said. “We are producing products for folks like Ben & Jerry's and Whole Foods, so quality is very important”. On average, Greyston workers could be making in the mid-to-high 40s, in terms of a salary, and some have risen into management. TIDAL's Gibb appreciates how the program can expedite hiring. “So what we like about it is, there just isn't a need to go through the ZipRecruiters of the world for jobs that you can train people that just have a willingness to find gainful employment. There's no reason why this should have anything but a positive, financial impact for you”. Second chances. People who have had brushes with the criminal justice system are no less qualified for jobs simply because of that experience, said Anthony Weiner. Weiner is a believer in the type of second chances that open hiring affords. The former congressman and New York mayoral candidate, who spent time in federal prison for sexting with an underage girl, was recently hired by IceStone, which makes sustainable, recycled glass countertops and surfaces. Weiner, who is currently CEO of the company, told The Journal News/lohud that it was the philosophy of the Brooklyn-based company that drew him to it. He said the company, which hires formerly incarcerated as well as those with a checkered hiring history, is all about second chances, from its recycled products to its people. “At IceStone, we don’t ask people whether they have a criminal background or not, because frankly we don't think it has any real bearing on their ability to work,” he said. The company does not work with Greyston. Weiner knows he is not the typical candidate for open hiring. He worked as a consultant for about a year before joining IceStone in May, and said because of his broad experiences working in government and as an elected official, he was able to tap in a large network willing to offer him opportunities. But for people without that support, the obstacles can seem insurmountable. “For the men and women who go through the criminal justice system, who pay their debts to society, the burden that they carry is still extreme when it comes to trying to return to the workforce, even for the most talented person," External link
