THE HUM MISSION
(HUM Founder Joy DiBenedetto talks about HUM's mission)
The Company is seeking its place in the international content universe committed to and known as the source for news, information and expertise from the 'GEOGRAPHIC GAP'.
As the first news agency ever to develop media to inform a global populace with a full geographic picture, HUM journalism focuses on the universality of the human experience, showcasing commonalities of life without boundaries of borders, age, race, sex, creed, color, locale, culture or –ism.
HUM will present media outlets, consumers, corporations, academic and government entities with a distinguished coverage source of trusted information and news products relative to a rapidly growing global generation of future-focused citizens who are drastically changing the way they access and consume content.
HUM is striving to be the next essential supply organization on the international information scene by catering to the emerging global mobile generation and by nurturing a realization of future prosperity, security and meaning directly tied to the total well being of the entire world. We will transform the news and information industry by our editorial and operational example and are developing proprietary technologies enabling and allowing our partners to do the same.
THE HUM GLOBAL PLATFORM
Our Company values reflect the totality of our journalistic, corporate, and social goals, equally combined.
As a Company looking to exemplify human events and society that is respectful and appreciative of all the planet’s culture, HUM is keenly aware that its own standards should represent transparency, honesty, and responsibility to a greater, `wider world’ vision.
To accomplish this, HUM has developed the Company’s `Global Platform’ which sets out our operating principles and corporate responsibility commitment. These are guidelines which the Company’s business dealings and its employees are measured by and held accountable to and they are focused in the following areas:
Our Journalism - The Company’s standards of accountability are defined by “The 21 C’s”.
Our Technology - We’ll introduce people to ICT technology and its role in journalism for people who are the future world citizens, now.
Our Information - The architecture of our systems ensures that all of our information is in sync. In this way we contribute to a globally connective civic and institutionalized information movement.
Our Profitability - We will derive our profitability from ethically certified business operations, for HUM, for our investors, and for our clients.
Our Accountability - Values, ethics, and mission guide our efforts and our business dealings in an effort to achieve transparency.
Our Sustainability Commitment - The Company is dedicated and will adhere to a strict interpretation of progressive environmental standards as a committed media company promoting efficient, responsible efforts we encourage and live throughout the spectrum of our company’s business.
Our Commitment to Pro-Social Growth - We want billions of people to derive positive economic, social and environmental returns from their participation with HUM by supporting positive deviants, spreading solutions far, wide, and fast. We want to help communities by harvesting good ideas, and adopting solutions for the problems they identify — in their own way. HUM will help provide people with a way to make their own place in the world, by connecting needs with opportunities as a catalyst for an information movement helping to achieve and support the basis of progress outlined by the Millennium Development Goals.
