Sometimes we don’t realize that our comments or jokes are a form of ridicule and disrespect when they play off stereotypes. These kinds of jokes often offend people in the workplace or make them feel excluded. Managers need to help employees see the impact of their behavior on working relationships (and the workplace in general).
