Worker Motivation in Crowdsourcing – A Study on Mechanical Turk
Motivations for Crowdsourcing
Cloud Labor, Crowd Creativity, Open Innovation

Organizations implement crowdsourcing applications in the hopes that the participation of an online community — a crowd — results in the design of goods or the solving of problems for the organization. Thus, it is important to understand how and why individuals in the crowd participate in these arrangements in order to maximize the crowd’s abilities. Crowds participate in crowdsourcing willingly, and they are not always driven by the opportunity to make money in the process. An organization that understands what motivates its crowd to participate and fulfills these needs will sustain a productive crowdsourcing platform.

In the past few years, research has been conducted specifically on the crowds of some well-known crowdsourcing applications to determine what motivates them to participate
. These findings indicate that crowds are motivated by a diverse set of extrinsic and intrinsic rewards, and individuals in the same crowd can be motivated for different reasons. Some common crowdsourcing motivators include the desire to earn money, to develop one’s creative skills, to network with other creative professionals, to build a portfolio for future employment, to challenge oneself to solve a tough problem, to pass the time when bored, to contribute to a large project for the common good, and to have fun.

Harnessing Crowds as a Motivational Mechanism
The Motivation of the Designer
Crowd Creativity

 

Choosing the winner just makes everyone else the losers. This is the common creed regarding contests and sweepstakes. For a single shot, no problem, but if you want to permanently keep a community happy, the “winner takes all” principle leads quickly to affect the commitment of the members and potentially diminish the creativity of the platform. Perhaps it is precisely this approach that is driving good designers to join 12Designer competitions. It is precisely these subtleties in the motivational construct of members that Eva Missling, founder of 12Designer, wanted to find.
