(Moins) Utile ? (Moins) Désirable ? Quand le surpoids est un potentiel facteur de discrimination à l’embauche

Abstract : We study here the impact of an applicant’s overweight on judgement of professional recruiters. The experimental manipulation was made by means of a photograph illustrating a curriculum vitae, presenting a young lady as obese or not. Judgements were made on utility vs desirability traits (Beauvois, 1995). Results show a main effect: the recruiters’ judgement is less favorable when the target is obese. However, the judgement is quite different according to the nature of the traits, but uniquely for a thin person. The discussion evokes the potential role of social norms in such judgements. Overall, results confirm those obtained in other studies using less standardized methods (Amadieu, 2006)
