Research has found that weight-based discrimination is rife in the workplace and occurs at every stage of the employment cycle. Obesity stigma at work often results in hidden wage penalties, fewer opportunities for promotion, reduced workplace wellbeing, increased stress and a higher likelihood of being dismissed.
Join our webinar where we will discuss the first findings from the PURPOSE programme, focussing on improving national productivity levels via better employment and labour market outcomes for those living with overweight or obesity.
