A Growing Need for Digital First Responders

Content moderators and the companies that perform this important and valuable work play a critical role in ensuring safer digital spaces and more reliable online experiences in today’s age. This is especially the case as more brands have established and grown their digital identities amidst the pandemic, and individuals are increasingly participating in the creation and consumption of user-generated content, which can be in the form of text, images, videos and audio.

“Unfortunately, as the number and popularity of social sites, forums and online communities have grown, so too have instances of fake reviews, copyright infringements, false news and disturbing content,” said Puritt. “As far as we have progressed with artificial intelligence and machine learning to support widespread efforts to remove it, the job in many cases ultimately must be completed by humans who understand nuances and can make the necessary judgements and inferences that an algorithm cannot. This is why content moderators, whom we respectfully refer to as ‘digital first responders’ are at the core of what we do. They are committed to protecting the general public from seeing this type of content in order to help them feel and stay safe in our digital world, and ensuring they do not experience its potentially detrimental effects on their mental health.”

“TELUS International is able to recruit individuals through word-of-mouth and referrals for content moderator positions,” continued Puritt. “We have no doubt this is because we are recognized as a best-in-class employer in the industry. This is due in great part to our caring culture and commitment to giving back, our significant investment in the health and wellbeing of our team members and award-winning sites located around the world, and our genuine interest in our team members’ feedback and suggestions about how we can continually improve their employee experience.”
