Enterprise: List of 40 Social Media Staff Guidelines

Shares

Managing staff who participate in social networks.

This list also includes policies called; Staff blogging policies, enterprise social network guidelines, Employee Blogging Policies, Staff engagement in online communities, and so on. I’ve done a few press (radio, print) interviews this week re: Telstra so I thought I should have another look at how Enterprise, Government, Corporates, Not for Profits  are handling the fact that their staff are members of social networks too.

I once had to step in to calm down a forum that was off the charts with negativity and general unpleasant comments. To be even heard, I started to IP and MAC address ban anyone who posted under secondary IDs for the purpose of trolling (making up a temporary persona who’s only purpose is to create negative comments). I shouldn’t have been surprised – victim number one was the entire Customer Service department. Yep, they had been using their CSR PCs to create secondary accounts to attack members – customers – who were criticising them on their official, primary, Customer Service profiles. No-one got reinstated until we had “the talk”. Kinda cool that companies are now posting internal policies publicly. Not surprising – it goes a long way to protect the company from fallout if/when staff do ignore the social media guidelines in place.

Anyway, you could just read ONE – IBM’s (love the “don’t forget your day job”) OR you can read all these: (download PR Crisis Comms social media courseware)

It’s worth, while working your way through these links not to just look at the usual topics

Topics covered in Social Media Policies

  • defamation, anti competitor, inaccuracies, disclosure, proprietary information, company secrets and IP, wasting time, inappropriate behaviour, rudeness, revealing personal information and so on
  • Look for the unusual
    eMail Forwards
    Jokes, urban legends and get-rich email forwards are the oldest form of Internet-based social media. When it comes to company email, we ask that you think twice before hitting send and be judicious with the number of items you forward. And, if you’re unsure whether the Prince of Nairobi really is being truthful about a promised fortune, a quick stop by Snopes.com might be in order. (Gretemangroup)

also look at

Fundamentals of Social Media Policies

  • is the policy collaborative – telling staff what they can and can’t do in their own time might require some discussion?
  • Is the policy positive teaching engagement in a satisfying way between staff and customers or is it negative with a bunch of Thou Shalt Not Post Pictures on Facebook During Your LunchBreak? Tone IS important – is it fun to read, informative and everyday speech? Do you engage with your staff as you would with customers on a blog – authentic personal respectful voice?
  • Is it truly public and does it serve the staff or the company. For example, if I trashtalk Widget company, a community member might point out I am a competitor and then send me to my own companies public guidelines. Yes, that does happen.
  • Does the policy extend to contractors? Pilots who fly the senior people around, can’t trashtalk them on the pilots forum. The advertising agency can’t post up a viral video of how their ex customer is a dick because they didn’t get their pitch? (both have happened, I have the screenshots, heh)>
  • Are the guidelines, now public, under creative commons so other companies can use them and help provide a fully informed educated ecosystem community?
  • Look at all the different names for basically one document? o.O Email Policies becomes Social Media Policies, no?
  • Check out how different industries – tech, education, military, government, art, public affairs – are prioritizing their guidelines. What is included, what is top of the list, how does it change?

That should keep you busy for a while…

The reason why I have the full link here, is because I print it up and hand it out with courseware in the Social Media Policies For Your Organisation workshops that I run If you want to do the same, please attribute me ‘n the other aggregators. Thanks :)

There’s not quite 40 Guidelines here. I guessed 40 cos I know that some of you will have others. I’m particularly looking for Australian social media guidelines for staff.

    An excellent resource – I’ve only scanned a few of the policies, but the rest are a definate read this weekend.

    This is becoming a bigger and bigger problem in Australia, and not in a way that companies expect.

    Consider: you work for a company that has a blogging / twitter policy of THOU SHALT NOT – at all. How is this enforcable ? Is it enforcable at all ?

    Yes and no – your company / department can (as my former employer did) block access to Facebook, Gmail, Twitter, MySpace – the list is long but distinguished. We had NO ACCESS to anything, and this was their right to do. They can block anything on their network, and no-one is saying they can’t. Yes, they provided two machines in the staff lunchroom for “unmonitored” internet access, not connected to the corporate network, but blocked sites on those machines as well.

    But that power does not extend to any twittering / blogging I do in my own time on my own machine at my own premesis (or anywhere else – I love Maccas free Wifi !!). Please note we aren’t talking about publishing corporate secrets, etc. If I were to work for, say, Telstra (which would make me incredibly desperate) and I were to critisise their broadband prices in my blog, there’s very little they could do about it – legally or otherwise.

      Also the increasing uptake of mobile microblogging, Policy will be more and more reliant on the bottom-up integrity of the employees, rather than top-down draconian levels of control.

      Maybe I’m over optimistic, but I think a little perceived freedom does wonders for employee morale.

    Great collection! I attended a seminar on Friday and some of the speakers brought up the corporate guidelines issue.

    I’m from Finland and must say that a lot of Finnish companies are just taking baby steps and most are still in denial regarding use of social media.

    We’ve had some companies ban the use of facebook during company time (what time isn’t company time now a days!) while others encourage it.

    Finns typically keep to themselves, so we haven’t yet become a widely blogging nation.

    At present the challenge is in getting companies to look at social media seriously and understand the potential benefits. When ever speaking about social media, I seem to get the risk and threat oriented feedback. Maybe examples of guidelines will cut some of this resistance.

    Thanks SilkCharm.

    I’ve been trying to create rules for Social Media engagement and this is a great resource.

    These are the rules I’ve come up with so far.

    Social Media Campaign Goals for Small Business:

    1. Have people engage in positive conversations about XYZ Company
    * In Social Networks, Forums, Twitter and Blogs
    2. Provide useful information
    * Teach people about the benefits of your products/services
    * Give people useful tips to deal with problems
    3. Create friendships and communities
    * Develop circles and connections in the online community
    * Have friends on Facebook
    4. Listen to customer feedback
    * Track both positive and negative feedback
    5. Become a trusted source!
    * You want to create so much trust that people in forums ask for your advice

    Rules of Engagement:

    1. Transparency
    * Never post as a ‘customer’
    * If someone asks who you are, tell them you are an XYZ Company Employee
    2. Never fight, provoke, flame or offend
    * Do not respond to criticism of the company unless specifically asked; even then, send the Marketing Manager an email first so you can respond appropriately
    * Do not enter controversial topics
    3. Inform – do not promote
    * You should never say “try our product’
    * You can suggest your types of products as long as you provide information. If someone says they have problems, don’t suggest your Brand Name Product, but give information about the products like yours– they will find your Brand Name when they search for what you told them to search for. You should also give tips that will help with their problem even if it doesn’t require buying a product.
    4. Don’t insert links in forum posts – allow the signature to act as a link
    5. Don’t respond to post more than 3 months old (use your judgment)
    6. Don’t answer a question that has already been answered unless you can honestly add something useful
    7. If you are posting as yourself or your own web personality, do it from home

    Hi,

    thanks for the post. I’m helping to craft a social media engagement policy for journalists at the news organisation I work at and I’m hoping to get some feedback on a draft that we’ve been working on for some time. Unfortunately, I’m afraid I have to keep this anonymous, as it is still a draft and we are still in the process of gathering feedback to fine-tune it.

    Here it is. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts… Thanks!
    ———————————————————————————
    Company policy for personal use of social media
    Note: The use of social media for professional purposes will be addressed in a separate policy to be announced.

    The following is the Company’s policy on the personal use of social media by staff. This covers staff’s personal web-pages and blogs, online forum postings, and all personal activities on social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Yaari, Plaxo, Linked-In, Yammer and others including the company chatline.

    1. Staff must make every effort to distinguish between their personal and professional use of social media. Where staff employ social media as part of their work, this should be done with the full knowledge of their supervisors. (Guidelines on work-related use of social media, where applicable, will be established separately by individual divisions.)

    2. Staff’s personal social media activities should not be carried out during office hours.

    3. Where staff intend to derive revenue from their personal websites or blogs, they should seek prior approval from the Company. Staff should also not promote any particular product or service in return for a benefit. (Note: This does not affect the sale of personal items online or on the company chatline.).

    4. Staff are expected to exercise good judgment in their personal social media activities. Staff, especially those who are recognised by the public,must ensure that their personal social media activities do not reflect unfavourably on the Company.

    5. Staff must make it clear in their personal social media contributions that they are not speaking on behalf of the Company. Personal web-pages and blogs should have clear disclaimers that the views expressed are theirs alone and not the Company’s.

    6. Information published on any social media platforms by staff must comply with the Company’s confidentiality and disclosure policies. In particular, information communicated to staff in confidence should not be disclosed on any social media platform without express approval from the Company. Audio-video or photographic recordings of staff events should also not be posted on social media platforms unless expressly approved by the Company.

    7. On no account should any potential news-breaks or unpublished news information, including unpublished versions of stories, be published on any social media platform. Nor should any of the Company’s proprietary works be used or reproduced without the Company’s express permission.

    8. Personal social media contributions by staff must not make any reference to Company-related matters or work-related issues concerning their colleagues or their supervisors. Staff should also not make comments that jeopardise the Company’s dealings with newsmakers, customers, business partners, competitors and regulators.

    9. Staff should bear in mind that all of the country’s laws also apply to social media. They must therefore respect all laws and in particular avoid infringing any rights in relation to intellectual property, defamation and privacy. Staff must also respect religious, ethnic and other sensitivities.

    The omission of explicit reference to any specific media platform does not limit the extent of the application of this policy. Where no policy or guidelines exist, employees should use their judgment and take the most prudent course. Where they are uncertain, they should consult their supervisor or Head of Department.

    A couple of points – I understand that you won’t be able to change much, but still, they need to be said.
    I think that “do not, do not, do not” policies are not conducive to team building or company loyalty. You could rework some of them to be “equal” e.g.
    2. Staff’s personal social media activities should not be carried out during office hours. In return, the company will not request that staff respond to business issues during family time this includes SMS and emails on weekends and out of hours. OR A small amount of time can be used each day for Facebook (10mins) in return for the occasional SMS or email during private time.
    Are there laws about moonlighting? I guess that is what number 3 is…
    4. ALL staff are now a Brand of One. It’s not the CEO you have to worry about, it’s the intern.
    5. That’s tough when they are chatting with their mum on Facebook “Hi mum, this next comment has nothing to do with my employer”. (sniggers)

    Point 1 is impossible to achieve. It doesn’t even work in real life “How are you, how’s the wife, have you thought about our business offer?”.

    To be honest, I like some of the social media guidelines in the post, that are more friendly and human-aware. But I guess Legal have already vetted this one? I’m not a lawyer so don’t how it sits legally…
    Gosh, was I too hard? :(

    As an IT consultant I am fully aware that IT management is struggling with whether social media is productive or obstructive for companies and their employees. Software is being developed and policy and restrictions are being decided everyday by IT managers. The security of company networks are at stake but the potential for innovation using social media is a large enough carrot for the discussion of how to properly utilize the medium continues. Palo Alto networks came up with an webinar, http://bit.ly/cR80Al, that should be interesting exploring the issues surrounding social media in the workplace. It is important to not only understand the immediate benefits of doing business how one lives, but the threat it presents to a company’s greater ROI and productivity when it comes to the server’s safety and security.

    Hi Laurel

    Thank you for an excellent source of information on social media policies. I think you are spot on with your approach in terms of application, though as a law firm we tend to advise and assist with the risk management aspect of social media (both for employees and employers), as we do with other employment policies. For example, in Australia it is essential that you inform your employees if you are going to monitor them.

    One aspect of social media policies that is vastly under covered is the training; there is little point in having a social media policy in place without ensuring that the whole organisation is accross it. This from both ensuring a unified approach and a risk management perspective. Training also presents a great opportunity for collaboration and communication within an organisation.

    We have developed a sample social media policy that can be downloaded from our website http://www.blandslaw.com.au/checklist_ssmp.html which companies can reference. This sample social media policy is Australia centric as it references relevant Australian legislation (please don’t collapse in a heap) but it could easily be modified for international use. As it is developed by a law firm you may find the language a bit heavy handed (!) but we have attempted to ensure that it is in keeping with the spirit of social media – quite a challenge for lawyers.

    We hope the availability of this, as well as other, sample policies will encourage companies to become more involved in social media and less concerned about the percieved risks and more focussed on the potential benefits.

    Regards
    Vivienne

    The Jewish tradition of sitting shiva that continues for the first seven days can be very exhausting both physically and emotionally for the mourners. This is true especially for the Shiva captain and other direct mourners because the Jewish tradition of Shiva needs to be followed intensely and meticulously. There are a number of restrictions and prohibitions for the whole of one week when one sits shiva.

  • Social media is a phrase being tossed around a lot these days, but it can sometimes be difficult to answer the question of what is social media. If MySpace is a social media site, and Mag.nolia is a social media site, and Wikipedia is a social media site, then just what is social media?

    And above concepts are also Very informative about Social Media

    They may also offer rehabilitation of vision problems through medication and minor surgical procedures. * They diagnose certain body conditions that ultimately affect the eye including hypertension or diabetes
    * They diagnose and treat visual conditions like astigmatism, nearsightedness, farsightedness and presbyopia. * They detect and correct vision problems through the prescription of glasses and contact lenses.

    It’s truly one of the most important senses and one which no one wants to lose or see diminished. An optometrist works hard to preserve eye health and bring enrichment to this necessary sense. There’s probably not a person on the planet who wants to lose their eyesight. Everyone agrees how vital it is to be able to see.

    Now I know there are a few readers out there who are thinking “These eyes are mine! They are there to examine and diagnose your eyes, as well as give sufficient treatment to correct poor eyesight. This treatment isn’t a bottle of “good-eye” pills, or a needle full of eyesight, it is vision correction throught the use of lenses and other optical aids. An Optometrist can, of course, be male or female, and they are responsible for keeping your eyesight in good shape. I’m not trusting them to some ‘doctor’ who can harass me with medical jargon” Luckily, I have your solution. Glasses and/or contact lenses are the norm for perscriptions by doctors in the field of optometry.

    The field of Optometry is massive, and one can get involved easily. No, I’m not saying that I have just found the lost book “Optometrist Medical Jargon for Dummies”, there will be some work required. make sure you make a quick visit every so often to make sure your eyes are holding up, and you should be good to go! If persuing a carrer in eyesight suits yours interest, there is many institutions to study it. In Canada you can learn about eyes at the University of Montreal (Quebec), or the University of Waterloo (Ontario). In the United States you many more options such as the University of California (Berkeley), the University of Houston (Texas), or the Michigan College of Optometry at Ferris State University.

    Remember that not all illness, whether it is your eyes or any part of your body that is affected, gives symptoms or ones that you ca easily recognized that is. The best way to know is to have regular check up with a professional eye doctor because they will and can tell when you are having problems with vision even before you know about it.

    Second are from referrals from friends, classified ads & if you are in the atmosphere, a hunt within your local area. Therefore, your eye problem nowadays can be easily solved. First off, you have the WWW or the Internet to search for these really good clinics & eye doctors in the placed. Selecting an eye doctor for a particular eye state is really simple & easy today. Go for eye doctors who have experience & more satisfied customers. Government hospitals are generally more reliable in eye cases.

    They remain open until five thirty in the afternoon. When you schedule an eye examination there you will need to give yourself approximately thirty five minutes for the vision screening. They remain open from nine to five thirty each weekday and they open up until noon on Saturdays. They open on Monday through Friday each week at nine in the morning. The Blizzard Optometrist Stawell office is only open on Wednesdays each week, but the Ararat location is open six days a week. The Blizzard Optometrist St Arnaud offices are open for the convenience of their customers five days a week.

    Or if you are Internet savvy, there is no better way than an Internet search. Some eye doctors in Miami have a family practice so you can take your kids there too. If you have relatives and friends who wear eye glasses, perhaps you could speak to them and find out which optometrist in Miami they visit. They will have an eye exam for all ages so if your kids have vision problems or eye complications then you should get an eye checkup for them. Today, it is not at all difficult to find a good optometrist in Miami. You can begin by looking through the phone book and check the names of various eye doctors in Miami. If the eye doctor is open to receiving new patients then you should easily be able to get an appointment for an eye exam.%

    may recommend his or her patient to another professional such as an ophthalmologist, an EENT or a neurologist as well as any other medical doctor that he or she sees fit to diagnose the condition better or more accurately.

    for sportspersons and so on. When a group of optometrists form a group practice, with each
    member specializing in one area, they are able to provide patients with a comprehensive eye care program.

    The patient should consult an ophthalmologist when he suspects that he may be suffering from a disease or condition of the eye that cannot be resolved by the prescription of glasses or contact lenses.
    In many cases, both professionals might work together to help resolve a patient’s issues with regards to his eyes and his sight.
    On the other hand, the diagnosis and assessment of one’s sight can be
    easily done by the optometrist without the aid of the other professional.
    Some optometrists can also recommend the other to their patients if they think that the individual needs to see an ophthalmologist.
    Despite the many differences and similarities between the two, there are also many specifics which can dictate when one is needed over
    the other.

    As you can intuitively imagine a ship consists of hundreds of different machineries and components which relate to
    diverse fields and areas of technical expertise, hence the process of cost estimation of
    a ship is not something about a couple of
    people sitting at the table with calculators; rather it is a full fledged exercise which needs to be carried out with the utmost care and diligence lest there are huge errors in estimation. They can provide information about their particular company, their equipment, and their drivers.
    We realize the importance of being honest and offering good
    service.
