We recognize that social media is a valuable tool for communication, collaboration, and community building. At the same time, we understand that social media use can present risks and challenges to our company and employees. This policy outlines our expectations for responsible and professional social media use.

Professionalism and Respect

Employees are expected to represent the company in a positive and professional manner on social media. This includes using respectful language, avoiding offensive or inflammatory comments, and refraining from sharing confidential or proprietary information.

Personal Responsibility

Employees are personally responsible for their social media activity, even when using personal accounts outside of work hours. Any comments or posts that could be seen as derogatory, discriminatory, or defamatory could harm the reputation of the company and will not be tolerated.

Company Endorsements

Employees must not imply that they speak on behalf of the company without prior authorization. Endorsements or recommendations for company products, services or partners should be authorized by the company.

Confidential Information

Employees must respect the confidentiality of the company’s business practices, and proprietary information, including client information and trade secrets.

Social Media Usage

Employees should use social media responsibly and with caution. They should not spend excessive time on social media during work hours, and should refrain from using social media in a manner that could interfere with their work or the work of their colleagues.


Failure to adhere to these guidelines may result in disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment.

Contact Information

If you have any questions or concerns about social media use, please contact the Human Resources Department. We encourage our employees to use social media to share information and engage with our customers and the wider community, but always with the understanding that professional behavior and the reputation of the company is a priority.
