The Costs of Bad Behavior

How it Started

It all started in 1986 when ELI founder Stephen Paskoff saw that companies often waited until a costly incident had occurred before dealing with many of their labor and employment issues.

As an EEOC trial attorney and then law firm partner, he was astonished at the amount of time, money, and energy spent on legal battles that could have been avoided in the first place. Convinced that prevention was the key, he set out to build a unique learning experience that would finally address the underlying causes of bad behavior in the workplace.

What started as one lawyer’s mission is now a global training resource for civil behavior in the workplace. Today, more than 2.5 million people worldwide have experienced ELI training and over 12,000 facilitators have been trained in ELI’s award-winning approach. Many leading organizations and best-known brands (such as Coke, Verizon, UPS, and the EPA) rely on ELI to help them build a more compliant,  respectful, inclusive, and productive workplace.
