Citing “economists,” the magazine says “handsome men” earn an average of 5% more than less-attractive men over their careers and women earn 4% more.
Newsweek talks of the “growing bundle of research showing a bias against the unattractive—our ‘beauty bias,’ as a new book, "The Beauty Bias," calls it—that is more pervasive than ever. And when it comes to the workplace, it’s looks, not merit, that all too often rule.”
A New York recruiter told the magazine, “It’s better to be average and good-looking than brilliant and unattractive.”
Founding partners are Jamie Lynn Sigler and Kim Guyader. Sarah Evans is managing partner in New York.
Evans said that, “While image is important, it can only take you so far. JPR has worked extremely hard to build a business that is comprised of passionate, smart, ethical and hard-working employees.
“We have not achieved the success we have, or retained our marquee client roster year after year, based on image or looks alone. We retain and gain clients by demonstrating expertise and obtaining results.”
