The Marketing Manager should work with the Human Resources Manager to develop an acknowledgement form, using Social Media Policy & Acknowledgement Template as a guide, for ensuring that all employees are aware of the social media policy, in accordance with the company’s Employee Handbook. The HR Manager should retain signed acknowledgements in employees’ personnel files. MP1080-5 SOCIAL MEDIA POLICY & ACKNOWLEDGEMENT covers disclosure, security, user guidelines, and more.
MP1080-5 states that the company wants its employees to be able to use social media personally and professionally. In either case, employees must use social media responsibly. They must understand that their use of social media, both on and off site and whether using the company’s communication infrastructure or another means (e.g., public network, private network), carries with it serious responsibilities and potential ramifications.
