Subject:  Updated Office Language

It has been brought to our attention that some of the language used in our organization is offensive to several of our fellow employees. We cannot let this situation continue. However, management realizes that it is important that all employees should be able to express views clearly without misunderstanding, so comparative phrases should be used instead. It is important that all should memorize the new phrase, so an exchange of ideas can continue in the workplace.
