Milestone 3 NCPD TrustIdea 1: Requester and worker portfolios
Requesters and workers need to have trust in each other and on the platform they are working on in order to achieve better results. But building trust amongst each other is one of the biggest challenges faced in crowdsourcing. One of the ways to achieve this trust is by having accounts of requesters and workers as portfolios. A portfolio displays their skill set with proof: for example, if a worker says he is good in programming and technically strong, that can be either proven through displayable samples of work, or by displaying where he graduated from or by telling which IT company he worked for and what was his contribution there. On the requester side, he can provide as proof the details about the company or firm the worker will be working for. This will help requester build trust about worker’s skills to successfully complete the task, and worker to trust the requester about his seriousness towards the task to be completed with high quality results ensuring to get paid satisfactorily.
