Testbirds, a world-leading crowdtesting provider, initiated the Crowdworking Code of Conduct, a self-imposed set of rules that aims to create optimal working conditions and ensure a win-win situation for all parties involved. This initiative is supported by the German Crowdsourcing Association (Deutscher Crowdsourcing Verband e.V.) and has garnered support from eight leading crowdsourcing providers. The joint Code of Conduct establishes a stable and sustainable basis for cooperation with providers of flexible, crowd-based work models. Through the introduction of this Code of Conduct, essential cornerstones and common values are defined and recognized.
