CODE OF CONDUCT


Employee Code of Conduct

Your Employee Code of Conduct is one of the most important parts of your Employee Handbook. We created a code of conduct template to help you communicate your expectations to your employees in a clear and tactful manner.


Our general expectations


No matter how you use your corporate email, we expect you to avoid:

  • Signing up for illegal, unreliable, disreputable or suspect websites and services.
  • Sending unauthorized marketing content or emails.
  • Sending insulting or discriminatory messages and content.
  • Spamming other people’s emails, including your coworkers.

Using personal social media at work


You are permitted to access your personal accounts at work. But, we expect you to act responsibly, according to our policies and ensure that you stay productive. Specifically, we ask you to:

  • Discipline yourself. Avoid getting sidetracked by your social platforms.
  • Ensure others know that your personal account or statements don’t represent our company. For example, use a disclaimer such as “opinions are my own.”
  • Avoid sharing intellectual property (e.g trademarks) or confidential information. Ask your manager or PR first before you share company news that’s not officially announced.
  • Avoid any defamatory, offensive or derogatory content. You may violate our company’s anti-harassment policy if you direct such content towards colleagues, clients or partners.

Representing our company through social media


If you handle our social media accounts or speak on our company’s behalf, we expect you to protect our company’s image and reputation. Specifically, you should:

  • Be respectful, polite and patient.
  • Avoid speaking on matters outside your field of expertise when possible.
  • Follow our confidentiality and data protection policies and observe laws governing copyrights, trademarks, plagiarism and fair use.
  • Coordinate with our [PR/Marketing department] when you’re about to share any major-impact content.
  • Avoid deleting or ignoring comments for no reason.
  • Correct or remove any misleading or false content as quickly as possible.
