Beauty in Business

Being tall and good-looking is the key to career success, according to research carried out at the London Guildhall University.
Tall men earn up to 10 percent more than their shorter colleagues, while those regarded as ugly earn 15 percent less than their better-looking workmates. Being obese doesn’t affect men, but apparently it’s costly for women, with overweight females likely to earn five percent less than their slimmer colleagues.
Researchers concluded that the penalties for plain-ness far exceed any premium for beauty, and this could be an issue to be addressed in future equal opport-unities policies.
