Social Media

Guidelines for functioning in a Healthcare World are the same as the values, ethics and confidentiality policies employees are expected to live every day, whether you’re Tweeting, talking with customers or chatting over the neighbor’s fence. Remember, your responsibility to Guardian Angel Staffing Agency, Inc., (“Guardian Angel”) doesn’t end when you are off the clock. For that reason, this policy applies to both company sponsored social media and personal use as it relates to Guardian Angel Staffing Agency, Inc..

What You Should Do:

  • Disclose your Affiliation: If you talk about work related matters that are within your area of job responsibility you must disclose your affiliation with Guardian Angel.
  • State That It’s YOUR Opinion: When commenting on the business. Unless authorized to speak on behalf of Guardian Angel, you must state that the views expressed are your own.
  • Protect Yourself: Be careful about what personal information you share online.
  • Act responsibly and ethically: When participating in online communities, do not misrepresent yourself. If you are not a vice president, don’t say you are.
  • Honor Our Differences: Live the values. Guardian Angel will not tolerate discrimination (including age, sex, race, color, creed, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, citizenship, disability, or marital status or any other legally recognized protected basis under federal, state, or local laws, regulations or ordinances). Nor will Guardian Angel tolerate any violent, hostile, or harassing behavior(s).

What You Should Never Disclose:

  • The Numbers: Non-public financial or operational information. This includes strategies, forecasts and most anything with a dollar-figure attached to it. If it’s not already public information, it’s not your job to make it so.
  • Any internal communication, or electronic distributed to you is not to be made public.
  • Personal Information: Never share personal information about Guardian Angel, our clients, patients, etc.
  • Legal Information: Anything to do with a legal issue, legal case, or attorneys without first checking with legal.
  • Anything that belongs to someone else: Let them post their own stuff; you stick to posting your own creations. This includes all logos or other images that are trademarked by Guardian Angel.
  • Confidential Information: Do not publish, post, or release information that is considered confidential or top secret.
    Basically, if you find yourself wondering if you can talk about something you learned at work — don’t. Follow Guardian Angel’s policies and live the company’s values and philosophies. They’re there for a reason.
    Just in case you are forgetful or ignore the guidelines above, here’s what could happen. You could:

    • Get fired (and it’s embarrassing to lose your job for something that’s so easily avoided)
    • Get Guardian Angel, and yourself in legal trouble with customers or investors
    • Cost Guardian Angel the ability to get and keep customers, and could potentially cost you your healthcare license.

    Remember: protect the brand, protect yourself.
