Workplace Code of Conduct:
Creating an account on Workplace is voluntary, you can choose whether or not you would like to adopt the use of the communication platform. Important communication and messages will continue to be shared in other formats to ensure that you still have access to the information that you need.
To maintain an inclusive and respectful community, it is important for all of us to adhere to the following acceptable standards of behavior at all times when using Workplace:
- Workplace is an extension of your physical workspace. You are expected to behave on Workplace as you would at any other time at work. Each of Numotion’s policies apply to your activity on Workplace, including but not limited to policies on compliance, ethics and business conduct, mobile device use, bullying and harassment and social media.
- Posting commentary, content, or images that are defamatory, discriminatory, proprietary, harassing, offensive, obscene or inappropriate or that can create a hostile work environment will not be tolerated.
- Workplace is not for discussing customer information or any other business confidential, proprietary or sensitive information. Workplace is to share company updates, team recognition and connect everyone to one message. Your day-to-day customer workflows should remain in the tools you are familiar with – never rely on Workplace for urgent or confidential matters.
- Sharing kudos about a teammate is encouraged, but make sure you use non-identifying terms to describe the scenario. For instance,
- “John did a great job helping a customer who had difficulty getting into their chair last week. Way to go!” would be appropriate, while…
- “John did a great job helping Mary Robinson get into her chair last week. Way to go!” would not.
- When seeking feedback on a customer situation, use discretion. It’s ok to crowdsource ideas on how to handle generic situations, but clinical information and customer specific planning must happen in our secure systems aligned with the medical record.
- Technology is ever-present, and we increasingly have devices on hand when interacting with our customers and completing our work tasks. Use good judgment and communication when using a device for work. Do not use mobile devices for personal reasons on the job or in instances where to do so would jeopardize the safety or wellbeing or yourself or others.
- Handle your posts, comments and chats responsibly. Consider how you word feedback, be respectful, courteous and professional. Be concise and consider the audience. Check your content carefully before posting (including any files or uploads for virus or other issues) and always be professional in your interactions with others.
- Speak up and report a post when you see something you consider to be misleading, deceptive, offensive, inappropriate or just wrong. Please Refrain from engaging on Workplace and talk to a manager or the Communications team. Report by clicking the three dots button and selecting “report post” from the dropdown.
- Take ownership of your user profile and role on Workplace. Engage positively, keep your profile updated, and don’t treat Workplace as you would your personal account.
