Netflix updated its company culture guidelines for the first time since 2017 to include an "artistic expression" section that warns employees they may be required to work on content that's counter to their personal values.
"Not everyone will like — or agree with — everything on our service," the memo says. "We let viewers decide what's appropriate for them, versus having Netflix censor specific artists or voices."
"Depending on your role, you may need to work on titles you perceive to be harmful. If you'd find it hard to support our content breadth, Netflix may not be the best place for you," it continues.
The move follows a tumultuous quarter for the streaming giant marked by a historic loss of subscribers and an unexpected round of creative layoffs.
