Corporate Blogging / Social Media Policy Guidelines

In general, your company views personal websites or weblogs positively and your company respects your right as an employee to express your personal views, and if you are to share the most recent activities in your company, your readers may think that you are speaking on behalf of your company. So this are the things that you should take note:

1. Inform your readers that the views expressed, are yours alone and these does not necessarily mean that it reflects the views of the company, or the employer. This will help you and your readers to identify and be informed that the company is not responsible of whatever you post or say on your blogs.

There are some bloggers who puts a disclaimer in the front or at the end of their blogs saying who are they working for but they are not speaking officially on their employers behalf, this is a good practice to avoid confusion on readers.

2. Avoid disclosing company information that is confidential, all of the companies has their confidential policy and it is also your responsibility as an employee to protect the interest of your company. Do not disclose any information that may harm you, your employer or any third party.

3. Your employer has the right to view your employment documents as as part of your employment contract, whatever documents or any work related stuff you produce on behalf of the company, your employer has the right to and own it as well. If you are not comfortable of this process, you may want to speak to your manager to discuss further and to have a better agreement of the process.

4. Be polite with your blogs, as you are still working under your company’s name. It is necessary that you take in mind that whatever you write and post on your blogs, should be respectful to the company, your colleagues, and to your customers. This is another step for your company to produce more potential clients.

5. You may provide a link to your company website provided that you will speak to your manager and ask their permission for you to use the company’s trademark.

6. Most of all, your company has the right to freeze your accounts or temporarily confine your website if the employers believe that you are using it for your personal stuff or you are mixing the employees and employers stuff. This is to ensure that you are still following, the regulations of other laws.

Setting up these guidelines may or may not help your company, but as you set your standards as an employer, bear in mind that you and your employer should benefit for the same. As an employee, you may want to take in mind the guidelines that’s written here, respect your company policies and its interest.
