Whether unwanted behavior occurs out of habit or lack of awareness about what harassment is, the results are the same. Someone is offended and the organization may not even be aware of the exposure that is looming. The behavior has impact even though it may not be intended to harm or cause someone to be uncomfortable. Even subtle behaviors that are offensive can create a stressful and difficult work climate.
