It has been brought to management's attention that some individuals throughout the company have been using foul language during discussions of working matters with their coworkers. Due to complaints received, this type of language will no longer be tolerated.
We do, however, realize the critical importance of being able to accurately express your feelings when communicating with coworkers. Therefore, a list of preferred new phrases has been provided so that proper exchange of ideas and information can continue in an effective manner without risk of offending more sensitive employees.
