In the spirit of transparency, we wanted to share our social media policy for employees. We encourage everyone to get as involved as they'd like in social media (though we certainly never force it). But if people do want to get involved, we wanted to make sure they understand the proper way to do it. This is our basic policy. We would love to hear your thoughts.

In today’s world, just about everything we do online can be traced and can have an impact (for better or worse) on a company.eWayDirect doesn’t want to control what is said on personal social networking websites.
