ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ELI, Inc., a training company that helps organizations solve the problem of bad behavior in the workplace, and its President and CEO, Stephen Paskoff, were featured in the recent report “Study of Harassment in the Workplace,” released by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
The EEOC officials reported that ELI’s training helps reduce harassment in the workplace and recognized the program as an example of effective training that focuses on what employees and managers should do. As the report states, “…[M]any agencies have a contract with a training company called ELI to conduct ‘Civil Treatment Training for the Federal Government.’ The EEOC officials found that the civility training was helping in reducing the incidents of harassment in their agencies.”
“We here at ELI are extremely gratified and honored that the EEOC’s recommendations so closely parallel our own work and that Civil Treatment has been recognized as helping in reducing the incidents of harassment in the many agencies with which we have worked,” said Stephen Paskoff, CEO and Founder of ELI, Inc. “The recognition is extremely timely; allegations of harassment persist in organizations across the United States at all levels. As an example, consider the filing of a gender-based lawsuit launched by Gretchen Carlson, a former Fox News host, against network chairman Roger Ailes.”
Paskoff continued, “The complaint alleges that Ailes engaged in demeaning, harassing and retaliatory conduct. The case will generate its own news and debates about behavioral standards in today’s workplaces – what should not be tolerated and how these situations can be prevented.”
The EEOC stresses the importance of maintaining a culture that is inclusive and diverse. According to the report, “Stephen Paskoff, the founder of a group called Employment Learning Innovations [ELI], notes that many organizations have a values statement with regard to respect, non-discrimination, and/or anti-harassment. But for purposes of workplace culture, Paskoff explains, leaders must be able to articulate the specific behaviors that are expected of employees to carry out those values.
