We Embrace and Respect Authenticity
Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). At Applause, we understand their combined power. We value diversity in all its forms: age, color, disability, ethnicity, family/marital status, gender identity/expression, language, national origin, physical/mental ability, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, veteran status and more.
Each day, we strive to both remove the hurdles to equity and to enable opportunities for all employees. As a minority owned business, DEI is in our DNA, and our global community adds tremendously to that mix. We also prioritize charitable contributions to organizations that support underrepresented groups, such as dream.org, GLAAD and United Way.
DEI in All We Do
It’s an intrinsic part of our culture and extends across everything we do.
We actively seek out the best talent and work with programs to hire within underrepresented communities. Internally, we offer workshops such as personality trait awareness, unconscious bias awareness and affinity groups, which enable employees to create their own experience around diversity topics and more.
We ensure a global, diverse perspective by engaging real users to test for our clients in all industries all around the world. Our mission — focused and massive — is to improve the digital experience for our clients and their customers, ensuring inclusive access for all. We believe that digital quality improves quality of life.
Our Global Testing Community
We are proud of uTest, the world’s largest community of digital experts — currently 1.7M members strong. This incredible group doubles as an economic framework, enabling work that may not exist otherwise. For example, in countries with limited opportunities for women in STEM jobs.
Insights Into Applause Nation
Like digital quality and serving our customers, DEI is an ongoing commitment. A never-ending process that requires a multi-faceted approach to talent acquisition.
