I am opposed to companies hiring applicants based on their physical appearances in part because hiring good looking people is an advantage to the company, it shows how people are treated differently based on their appearance.To illustrate, Mr. Serrano, a former Abercrombie and Fitch employee emphasizes that, “We were supposed to approach someone in the mall who we think will look attractive in our store.” (p2). Consequently, this means that someone who is highly qualified, with past experience, might not get the job because they aren’t what is considered experience, and possibly underqualified will get the same job because they fit the criteria. This is an accurate representation of discrimination. The article also represents a
These points are just a guideline to obtain quality from a business; however, many of these points contradict the practice of “Salesmen of the Month” awards shown in the article. Firstly, one reason Deming would not approve of “salesmen of the month” tactics would be that this idea disagrees with his point stating that businesses should “end the practice of awarding business”. This tactic awards those who obtain business, which could lead the other employees to feel as if they are inadequate to the top “salesmen of the month”. This also ties in with Deming’s other point stating that businesses should “remove barriers that rob people of pride”. In the article the top 3 salesmen of the month each are shown their own individual profiles, while the other employees are simply grouped together into one generic heading titled “The rest of sales staff”.
Obviously they are lacking minorities in their shift leaders position so perhaps reviewing minorities that are qualified for the position first would be a good start for them in obtaining their goals. I don’t think that it is realistic for a company to try and meet their affirmative action goals because if you attempt to hire or promote one certain gender or race then you would be discriminating against others. A major con in using internal promotion is the fact that you may be unintentionally promoting a certain type
we overestimated with respect to our physical attractiveness. A business justification for basing a hiring decision on a non job-related factor (i.e. attractiveness), unattractive applicants were more likely to be seen as qualified, be hired, and given higher starting salaries than attractive applicants. For males, attractive males were rated as more qualified, were more likely to be hired and were offered higher starting salaries. Thus, differential subjective appraisals still appear to be operating in the selection process.
Rhona is making a reference to how beauty effects the way a male boss looks at his female employees. The play is suggesting that attractive women are not smart. Here, Mim is being used by Jim as a window dressing to cover up Rhona’s assumed unattractiveness, while Mim outweighs the smart aspect of the duo. Although I don’t agree with this assumption,
They believe in this part of the world, women are drawing even with men in terms of education and experience, yet men are paid more and do better than women at work. However, others are convinced that the gender bias does not explain the male-female pay gap and argue that the wage gap is a myth. Regardless of what people say, I believe that the wage gap is based on a misleading data and
Pocketing the difference between price tag, ongoing promotion and cash sales. * Involuntary rotation might not be good for the moral of the employees, lowering their loyalty and increasing their turnover * Lack of charismatic leadership: * Branch managers have no close relationship with their corporate superiors. * Performance evaluation is based on lowering theft percentage, not personal goals to achieve. Those factors result in poor perceived organizational support (OB, p. 110). This perception has a direct effect on employees’ engagement and organizational citizenship behavior towards the goals of the company.
(George & Jones 2011 pg 174) Why are there so few women and minority CEO’s of large corporations? Well for one they don’t look the part they can’t get past that fact. They focus only on the differences not the similarities if they had focused on that would see they have many similarities. Also why there are so few women is because many corporations still believe it’s a man’s job. They tend to promote people who are just like them in all aspects.
So, looking online for the best looking man or woman isn’t going to help them find a significant other. People who go online to date need to be more focused on personality and other things rather than who has the best looking pictures. And when you add in the fact that most of these pictures are fake or heavily edited, it really makes online photos useless. There are also people who don’t even post pictures at all, and they are still getting dates. That’s why it is irrelevant to have a prospective date to post a photo online.
