SOCIAL MEDIA
BBNC ’ s Culture of Integrity depends on you being an ethical employee . As the online landscape continues to mature , the opportunities for employees to communicate with each other and the world are evolving . While social media creates new opportunities for personal expression , it also creates new responsibilities .
As a BBNC employee , you are viewed by our customers , business partners , and other outside parties as a representative of BBNC . Whether or not you specifically reference or discuss your work , your participation on social media platforms ( such as Facebook , Instagram , Snapchat , LinkedIn , Twitter , and YouTube ) is a reflection on BBNC .
Ultimately , you are solely responsible for what you post online . Before creating online content , consider some of the risks and rewards that are involved . Keep in mind that any of your conduct that adversely affects your job performance , the performance of fellow employees or otherwise adversely affects customers , suppliers , and employees who work on behalf of BBNC or BBNC ’ s legitimate business interests may result in disciplinary action , including termination .
Inappropriate postings that may include discriminatory remarks , harassment , and threats of violence or similar inappropriate or unlawful conduct will not be tolerated and may subject you to disciplinary action , including termination . Keep in mind that you are more likely to resolve work-related complaints by speaking directly with your co-workers or supervisor than by posting concerns to a social media outlet .
