Could an oversized waistline put your future career at risk?

Career columnist Anita Bruzzese (www.45things.com/blog.php) says, “If you’re carrying too much weight—enough to be considered overweight or obese—then you’re a concern to employers.”

Studies have shown that not only do overweight workers have higher absenteeism and health care costs, but also they are less productive. Also, a Wayne State University study last year found that overweight workers are viewed negatively.

As a result, it may affect a hiring manager’s decision.
