You are likely to be already familiar with the look and feel of the RW Group Workplace as it is based on the Facebook platform.
RW Group Workplace is internal only and is not intended for viewing for individuals outside of the company.
RW Group Workplace gives staff the opportunity to participate in internal social networking to interact and encourage meaningful communication. It is more than simply an intranet site.
RW Group Workplace is entirely separate from your personal Facebook account if you have one and no information is shared by Facebook between them.
We trust our staff to use the RW Group Workplace appropriately and in a way which is respectful to other’s rights and opinions. However, the Group also believes it is important for staff to understand their obligations to each other, to candidates and clients when communicating through it.
The use of RW Group Workplace is not mandatory but is always subject to this policy.
This Policy must be followed in letter and spirit.
The Workplace Policy does not form part of your terms and conditions of employment.
Who Must Comply With This Policy
The policy applies to everyone working for Robert Walters, Resource Solutions, Walters People or on our behalf, including all directors, permanent and internal temporary employees.

You are responsible for anything posted in your name.
Workplace is intended for the internal discussion of Robert Walters Group-related business matters including work-related social events. It is not intended for use in connection with personal matters.
Do not repost any messages or information which appears on Workplace elsewhere, i.e. LinkedIn or a personal social media page unless you have permission to do so.

Never share CVs, candidate profiles or information about a candidate that is likely to be sensitive or is confidential. For example, do not share historical salary information or confidential screening information.
Do not share confidential information about a Client. For example, information which is covered by a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA).
Never use RW Group Workplace to discuss any matter which is the subject of a dispute or likely dispute. In particular, do not use RW Group Workplace to post any content marked “Legally Privileged” (whether in a secret group or not)
Never post any content which:
could be defamatory, derogatory, demeaning, malicious, abusive, offensive, or hateful towards any individual or group (including clients, candidates or competitors). Remember what is not offensive to you could be interpreted differently by someone else;
may be offensive to a particular race, gender, nationality, ethnicity, disability, religion, cultural background or political leaning;
could construe as illegal, obscene, profane, pornographic, violent or sexually explicit;
violates intellectual property, privacy or publicity rights of another, in particular logos or trademarks of third parties;
that may be seen as threating, intimidating, harassing, bullying or showing disrespect for anyone;
anything that could bring you or the company into disrepute; or
violates any RW Group policy.
Never share your credit card numbers, bank information, username and password with anybody else.
Always consider if Workplace is the correct channel for communication – always think whether a posting could be misinterpreted.
You can mention candidate names to aid collaboration across the business, but always conduct such conversations with professionalism.
Ask who your audience is? A secret group or the wider team? Ensure you check the group is secret before sharing anything confidential. Ask yourself whether an email or is a call more appropriate?
Read your content carefully before posting. Check for errors as well as tone and words that could be misunderstood. Your posts reflect on your professionalism, so always put your best foot forward.
Make sure files are virus-free before uploading them.
Misuse of the RW Group Workplace and violation of this policy may result in disciplinary action, including in appropriate cases, suspension or termination.
