Our Values



Passionate About Education

We believe education and literacy must be a right, not a privilege. Through our work on campuses worldwide, our employees can be a force for positive change globally.

Entrepreneurial

We take initiative and do the right thing for each other and our customers, with a focus on global impact in the 150 countries – and growing – in which we do business.

Always Learning

We celebrate curiosity and the opportunity for our employees to learn and grow within the company. We learn by listening to our users and to each other.

With Integrity

We hire friendly, collaborative people. We treat each other and our customers with trust and respect, and we earn that trust back with thoughtful and honest work.

What We Stand For



Education

Everyone, worldwide, is entitled to be a literate and engaged member of society. This right is supported by the public funding of schools and universities and should be preserved at all costs.

Speech

The open and global exchange of ideas and trade makes the world a stronger and more interconnected place. Freedom of speech and movement across borders is a necessary part of that global exchange.

Privacy

We advocate for the protection and safeguarding of our users' data in our interactions with our customers, with other companies, and with governments. Companies must work to maintain user trust in that stewardship.

Access

These principles are true for every person, regardless of nationality, race, gender or religion. Any action that systemically discriminates against any class of people is harmful to the whole of society.

Diversity and Inclusion



Turnitin is committed to creating an inclusive and diverse working environment. In June of 2016, we were one of 33 technology companies to sign the first Tech Inclusion Pledge, in which we agreed to complete the following:

  • Implement and publish company-specific goals to recruit, retain, and advance diverse technology talent, and operationalize concrete measures to create and sustain an inclusive culture
  • Annually publish data and progress metrics on the diversity of our technology workforce across functional areas and seniority levels;
  • Invest in partnerships to build a diverse pipeline of technology talent to increase our ability to recognize, develop and support talent from all backgrounds.
