Most of us will use social media in our personal lives, and increasingly our professional ones too. In fact, social media is a great tool for connecting with our customers, members and fellow colleagues to share the great products and services we have to offer.
But we all need to be responsible about what we put on social media – especially when our profiles connect us to the Co-op. Whatever your privacy settings, what you post on social media is never really private.
So we’ve clarified our expectations for colleagues when using social media in our new social media policy – so everyone can be clear what’s okay and not okay to put online. This isn’t about controlling what people say, but about making sure views are expressed in a respectful way. A good rule of thumb is – if you wouldn’t say it to someone’s face, then don’t put it on social media.
This policy supports our wider social media principles that we ask everyone engaging with us on social media to use.
