Ridiculously good-looking? There’s a job site for you!
While conducting exhaustive research for my “Kronos Beauty Talk” beta community, I discovered that an exclusive site for “beautiful people” (they must mean just on the outside), is now offering recruitment services for its clan of hotness. At this point, I will refrain from any more judgment of the beautiful people on that site.
Today only race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, and disabilities are protected attributes in our Federal law. What about physical attributes like fat, thin, tall, short, ugly, or the dreaded “too beautiful?” People are discriminated against every day for these things. If you participate in the hiring process, are you conscious of these biases? If not, you’re undermining your organization. Steve Denning over at Forbes has a great take on the value of diversity in the workplace, and its impact on innovation.
Oh, and since we’re talking employment and hiring, head on over to our careers page. We have over 120 beautiful positions open around the world, and we don’t require a glamour shot.
