There are significant challenges for overweight individuals seeking employment. Although most organizations state that their organization is an equal opportunity employer, this statement is not emphasized with action to support their claim of providing equal opportunity for all applicants. In today's society employers often frown upon individuals who may be overweight either for personal biases or for the long-term ramifications associated with obesity such as health complications that may result in a shortening lifespan which may pose a threat to organizations who require an employee that is healthy, energetic, and is able to withstand the rigorous day-to-day activities within the organization depending on the employer and/or position. Employers must be reassured that their selected candidate will remain with the company for the long-run. Employers who offer to provide health insurance may have trouble finding an adequate health care plan for obese employees for the reason that some insurance plans will not cover individuals who may be over 175lbs, thus leaving an obese employee to find healthcare outside of his/her employers healthcare plan. "The overall, tangible, annual costs of being obese are $4,879 for an obese woman and $2,646 for an obese man. The overall annual costs of being overweight are $524 and $432 for women and men, respectively. For both genders, the incremental costs of obesity are much higher than the incremental costs of being overweight. Adding the value of lost life to these annual costs produces even more dramatic results. Average annualized costs, including value of lost life, are $8,365 for obese women and $6,518 for obese men." (Dor, Ferguson, Langwith, Tan, 2010). Individuals may find it challenging to compete aggressively for promotions for the reason that employers desires to have an employee that is an organizational fit with the company. An employee is a representation of the organization he/she works for, therefore if an employee does not take pride in his/her appearance by incorporating a healthy lifestyle can be problematic for the employee in the long run. For instance, two highly qualified applicants are applying for the same position, one applicant is obese, and the other applicant is an acceptable weight based on his/her appearance. Although both applicants are extremely qualified, the individual who is not obese may get the position because he/she is an organizational fit with the current business culture. "Dr. Michael Smith, in a 2005 WebMD article, discussed the obesity epidemic as startling and one that implies a slew of dangerous health problems for American citizens - not to mention, economic consequences for both individuals and the national economy. As well, almost half of U.S. states have been found guilty of not confronting the problem of overweight and obesity rates among their populations." (Professors House, 2010).

Diversity is quintessential in the development of highly effective and productive teams. A diverse team implements innovative concepts that are drawn from various backgrounds and personality traits of each member. "Diversity is about empowering people" (Nadler, 1984) to work together and generate ideas by utilizing the team development stages of "Forming, storming, norming, and performing," (Tuckman, 1965). A diverse team plays a significant role in organizational effectiveness, whereas it allows organizations to "capitalize on the strengths of each employee," (Nadler, 1984) in order to maintain efficiency. For example, in an organizational infrastructure, each employee is assigned to a specific team; group or department, within each department is an individual that is appointed to cater to a specific demographic that requires a translator. If an organization does not have a translator available, the company could lose innumerable clientele and/or their business practices will be limited.

1. What is the benefit of cross-cultural management when being exposed to a diversity of ethnic groups? There are several benefits associated with cross-cultural management which include the following: ? Learning about and from various ethnic backgrounds-innovation often stems from the inspiration we acquire from people who may be different than ourselves. ? Working with people who posses different personalities than your own- it is enlightening to gain a fresh perspective on concepts, organizational functions, or the issues of life through someone else's viewpoint. In most cases, individuals from other countries may have a unique approach for solving problems that may or may not be apparent to someone from the U.S. ? Ability to learn about different cultures-learning about different cultures will enable management or employees to broaden their scope of understanding and knowledge about various ethnicities. ? Break down communication barriers-"All of us have certain barriers such as preconceptions, prejudices and stereotypes that obstruct our understanding of other people. Cross cultural training demystifies other cultures through presenting them under an objective light. Through learning about other cultures, barriers are slowly chipped away thus allowing for more open relationships and dialogue." (Payne, 2009)
