Tech Co Daxko’s Social Media Policy Like TV’s Tattoo

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Short, sweet and to the point.  That describes Fantasy Island’s character Tattoo (what gets to the point better than “de plane, de plane”).  And so is this social media policy I’m about to lay on you.

I must share with you a new social media “policy” used by a very cool company, Daxko.  Yes.  I work for Daxko.  OK…I am the VP of People for Daxko.  And yes, I wrote the policy (with love from my CEO, Dave Gray).   But when something is good and different then it should be shared.

Here it is:

Daxko Social Media Guidelines

have fun

use common sense

don’t be hurtful; reflect Daxko’s core values

 problem? talking to a team lead solves problems better than posts

think you shouldn’t post something? don’t

respect proprietary information and confidentiality

when in doubt, ask

 

Last year Daxko’s headcount grew 100%.  So some social media guidelines were necessary.  So there they are.  I researched about 20 different policies and I tried to encapsulate the best of them.

And:

  • It didn’t take a 4-volume tome to do it
  • It doesn’t insult the intelligence of our team members 
  • It encourages use of social media
  • It covers confidentiality
  • It doesn’t make mountains out of molehills
  • It fits our culture
  • It gives our team members the freedom to use common sense

And it doesn’t make HR look like grizzled, fear-mongering, stereotypically lame nuts.

Feel free to steal it if you want. 

 

Hey Gang FYI:  my post also ran on the blog Fistful of Talent but accidentally didn’t get pushed out to the masses.  Figured I’d get it out on my own blog as well.  But definately check out Fistful as well.
