The CEO Of Refinery29 On Nurturing Young Talent

Fast Company went behind the scenes of the online mag that speaks style--and learned how their employees are welcomed into the team.

When Refinery29 gets a new person on staff, they go out of their way to welcome them, says CEO and co-founder Philippe von Borries. Over dinner and drinks, "we actually talk about what they're seeing in the world, what's interesting to them," and even what they'd change about the company.

The magazine covers fashion, beauty, and cute puppies--and their youngest employees are the "source," he says, of their demographic's inspiration.
