Why we use social media for our communication
Information, entertainment and dialogue. These are the crucial aspects of social media for us. As a company, we wish to inform our employees, customers, partners and other interested parties about current news and developments in the Nagel-Group. Whether through a short news item, an info text, image or video, we want to share our stories with users. On our social media channels we inform you about events, developments in the company, trends, trade fairs, news in the careers area and much more. These channels and communications on behalf of the Nagel-Group are looked after exclusively by the staff responsible for corporate communications. We look forward to interesting dialogue and an exciting exchange of views. At the same time, we attach great importance to behaving in a respectful and friendly way towards one another. Act fairly, and always act within the law.

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