A values-centric culture is vital to our mission to help build better AI
by creating large volumes of high-quality training data faster.
Performance is having the focus and agility to achieve quality outcomes and exceed expectations. You never stop learning, and challenge yourself every day, while maintaining a healthy perspective and balance.
Honesty is being a truth-teller in a respectful way, taking accountability for your actions, and communicating with integrity with each other, our customers, our crowd and ourselves.
Humility is being part of a team, giving credit and showing gratitude to others for their contributions, seeking diverse perspectives, and, not being afraid to ask for help when you don’t know something.
Grit is about taking ownership, not giving up, finding creative solutions, and, having the courage to succeed. Grit and resilience give you the confidence and determination to achieve your goals.
The AI industry depends on the people who collect and label the data. They help make machine learning-empowered solutions possible and we are formalizing our commitment to their well-being. We believe that our customers should know that their partners stand for the ethical treatment of contractors.
Crowd Code of Ethics
Our goal is to pay our Crowd above minimum wage in every market around the world where we operate.
A diverse, inclusive culture is vital to our mission of helping build better AI. We offer opportunities for individuals of all abilities and backgrounds.
Our Crowd has a valued voice at Appen and their feedback helps us to continuously improve.
Privacy and confidentiality
Any information collected about the Crowd is requested solely for the purposes of the project. Appen takes precautions to protect that information and does not release private data on individuals to third parties without consent.
We believe in helpful, transparent, and responsive lines of communication with our Crowd.
Appen promotes wellness, community, and connections through online forums and best practices.
“We support Appen’s efforts to develop a Code of Ethics for its crowd. We believe these considerations are essential for both the crowd and the industry to thrive, and this complements our ethical pricing and best practices guidelines we issued earlier this year.”
Sebastian Kohlmeier at the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence (AI2)
