Our employee advice

We would like to provide a few guidelines in the use of social media for our employees. The use of social media is a purely private activity and there is of course a right to freedom of expression. Please check your activities on private networks carefully, however, as soon as you start discussing business topics. Be aware of your position in discussions, contributions or other activities associated with your private accounts and the company you belong to.

This advice is intended to support you in your activities on social media and help in clarifying any problem areas.

1.The same principle applies in the virtual world as in real life: you must not disclose internal information.

As an employee, you find out things not intended for those outside the company.The duty to keep confidentiality under employment law continues to apply online.

2.Do protect your private life. Think carefully about what you disclose about yourself.

In your social network, it is possible that there are people other than private contacts. Please think about that when you disclose information about yourself..

3.Think about the long-term effect of information on the net.

Everything published on the internet stays there. It is very difficult to undo or cancel anything, once it is published. Every action you take leaves a trace. So think carefully beforehand about the effect any statements could have for you personally, or for your employer. .

4.If you express views on the Nagel-Group’s website, we hope that you will identify yourself as an employee, so that your opinion of the Nagel-Group can be understood in that context..

Comments on the Nagel-Group, affiliated companies, partners or market circumstances can be better understood in context if you identify yourself as an employee of the Nagel-Group. It makes evaluating your opinions clearer.

5.A respectful attitude is important for everyone.

The Nagel-Group attaches great importance to treating other people fairly and having a respectful attitude towards competitors, customers and colleagues. Discrimination, disparaging comments and content which breaches the law are just as inappropriate when using social media. Respectful contributions are therefore desirable for everyone..

6.Fair and friendly communication makes for a good exchange of ideas..

Behaving in a fair and friendly way towards others is important to all of us. It is particularly advisable to find a good way of expressing yourself in the virtual world. Always consider whether you would say the same things to the person you are talking to online face to face.

7. In your own interests, ensure that your comments do not break any applicable laws.

Ensure that you abide by the law even when online. This may concern, for instance, data protection, copyright or safeguarding business secrets.

8. Exercise caution when opening files.

On the internet you will come across a multitude of files, programmes, photos and videos. These may contain viruses or other risks. Pay attention to the source, and always keep your security software up-to-date.
