How can gig economy platforms improve their business for the worker? In this episode, I talk to Markus Steinhauser, COO of crowdwork platform Testbirds. In 2015, he initiated the Crowdsourcing Code: a 'code of conduct' signed by 8 crowdwork platforms and backed by a union.
At his office in Munich, I talk to Markus about the reason, the rollout, the results, the opportunities as well as the challenges of this initiative.
