Social media and digital policy


Everyone has personal preferences about social media. Some people choose to use it frequently, others choose to have accounts for private messaging only.

Personal profiles are in fact, personal. However, the following best practice guidelines should be adhered to, in order to protect your own personal reputation and that of your employer.

This policy is applicable to all of the HSE’s 108,000 staff.
