Co-founder Neil Blumenthal shares staffing secrets.
Warby Parker co-founder Neil Blumenthal shares some of his staffing secrets with The Observer. “One of the top qualities we screen for is being proactive,” he says. “Is this candidate someone whose “work metabolism” burns at a high rate or a sluggish rate?
