NEMT Connect Community Guidelines

Our Mission

NEMT Connect is the educational social platform that brings the industry together! Our mission is to provide valuable resources to people and companies in the NEMT industry while allowing them to build communities to discuss NEMT topics.

The goals of this community are to assist NEMT drivers in their professional pursuits in the industry, provide resources to help drivers and organizations obtain the certification needed, help maintain friendships and connections formed, to build strong and mutually beneficial ties between all members, and allow institutions to promote events for their communities and to stimulate interest and enhance involvement in the industry.

In order to meet the goals of this community, it’s important for members to feel like they are in a safe place that is populated by people with shared interests. As such, we request that you read and adhere to the guidelines that follow.

Zero-Tolerance Standards

NEMT Connect (“We”) reserve the right to moderate content uploaded on our platform. We will automatically remove the following types of content:

Contextually irrelevant product recommendations, product or job referral links

Repetitious content, or content that lacks context or is excessively personal (such as an issue related to your romantic life in a way that is not professionally related)

The content you are flagging is aggressive, offensive, or goes after someone in a way that is malicious or deliberately disrespectful

Slurs or offensive stereotypes, and excessive negative not intended to be productive

Directly attacks someone’s reputation

Abuses or targets other users, or is deliberately disrespectful

Information deemed to be confidential or proprietary

Trolling conversations by making deliberately provocative or abusive statements that derail discussions

Content that reveals an individual’s private information in a way that’s unwanted, or is otherwise a danger to the content poster or others around them

Each community organizer (“Organizer”, “Community Organizer”) reserves the right to allow only the members they wish to join. Members may request to join public groups, but only the Organizer(s) may approve members to join. The NEMT Connect Community Guidelines supersede any of guidelines that Community Organizers wish to include in their communities (i.e. “Community Groups”, “Discussion Forums”, “Groups”, “Forums”).

Content Flag Enforcement

All members are allow to flag content, and we review every flag! Depending on the circumstances, we reserve the right to take the following actions:

  • The demotion of your content in the community to make it less likely that other users will see it
  • Removal of your flagged content
  • Temporary or permanent suspension of accounts.
  • Removal of privileges from, or adding restrictions to, accounts.
  • User dismissal from the community.

Suspensions from NEMT Connect can be indefinite or last a set time period depending on the severity of the offense or the number of offenses incurred. Repeated offenses or an egregious first offense can result in permanent or indefinite bans from the community. Refunds will not be grated to individuals or companies who are banned, terminated or otherwise suspended from the use of our services.

Discussion Forums and Community Groups

The community groups are spaces for your company community to crowdsource answers from colleagues across your organization. Many challenges are time-consuming to figure out on one’s own, such as “What kind of training do I need before I can start driving for my company?” or “How can my company seek out contracts or opportunities?” Furthermore, other questions are uncomfortable to solve in public, like, “What is the typical salary of a manager in this department? How do I work my way up to it?” or “What is the parental leave policy like here? I’m afraid of asking my manager.”

NEMT Connect’s mission is to help professionals get ahead together. Conversations on the platform may help some users level up in their careers, obtain the certification they need, or for others to achieve wellbeing at work. The different identity options allow users to post career and job relevant questions without getting docked on their professional brand.

With that said, it is important to maintain a positive and constructive community space to make sure company morale is preserved. We believe every employee should feel responsible with their actions and measure the impact their words have on overall company morale.

This is why content that doesn’t adhere to Fishbowl’s Community Guidelines and affects community morale can be flagged by the community and removed, such as:

  • Mean-spirited comments
  • Excessively negative statements devoid of context or reasoning
  • Questions about other companies (like interviews)
  • Name calling, or strong references to specific people

What might feel good to an individual (like venting) might have a negative ripple effect on the entire company. We believe there are other ways for you to solve issues, like having constructive conversations about the same important topic.

Here are examples to show how you can move from affecting company morale to having a productive conversation:

Avoid Saying This, Make it Constructive by Saying,
That training was horrible.
Made me cringe the whole time!
I have feedback on the classroom training. presentation. What’s the best avenue to discuss my concerns?
Does anyone think this company is about to sell out? ‘Cause I feel that it’s become a sinking ship (ノ ̄ー ̄)ノ ● ⊥ I would love to have a coffee chat with company leaders to understand their challenges and see if I can be helpful in any way. I believe we should communicate more between departments and levels. Does anyone want to volunteer? ( . . / )
I’m interviewing at [a different company]. Anyone has advice? [PLEASE do not post that you’re interviewing elsewhere. This kills company morale!]
