Guidelines for functioning in an electronic 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 Axon doesn’t end when you are off the clock. For that reason, this policy applies to both company sponsored social media and personal use of any media as it relates to Axon.
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 Axon.
State That It’s YOUR Opinion: When commenting on the business. Unless authorized to speak on behalf of Axon, you must state that the views expressed are your own. Hourly employees should not speak on behalf of Axon when they are off the clock.
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: Axon 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).
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.
Personal Information: Never share personal information about our customers or students.
Anything that Belongs to Someone Else: Let them post their own stuff; you stick to posting your own creations.
Confidential Information: Do not publish, post, or release information that is considered confidential.
Basically, if you find yourself wondering if you can talk about something you learned at work — don’t.
