Keeping organizations lean, literally!

Overweight workers find it harder to get jobs than their slim counterparts, an online survey suggests. The findings indicate obese people are discriminated against when applying for jobs, are passed over for promotion, and are more likely to be made redundant – all purely on the basis of their weight. It sounds more like prejudice than discrimination to me. See Overweight job hunters 'lose out' (BBC News) and Fattism rife in business (Personnel Today) for more details.

Aye same here, but just a small note to mention that you've typoed my title in the index on the right, it says "Sreving" instead of "Serving".

Cheers!
