"During a panel at Fairmont Copley Plaza on Thursday, Wayfair CEO Niraj Shah said that being “non-political” is one trait he looks for in prospective employees for the Boston-based online retailer.
The remark came less than three months after hundreds of employees walked out in Copley Square to protest the company's (NYSE: W) sale of furniture to operators of migrant detention camps along the U.S. southern border. Shah had been asked what characteristics the company looks for most when bringing in someone new.
“We’re generally just looking for people on two sets of criteria. One, it’s just that … they’re incredibly talented. They’re intelligent, quantitative. Just that we think they have the raw material to really succeed and we feel confident," Shah said. "The second thing we look for — equally important — is the cultural fit. So we’re bringing in non-political, you know, highly collaborative, just very driven and ambitious. There’s a whole lot of cultural values that we think are important while we succeeded."*
