Employees of x.ai take a pledge.  It's a lot different from their options agreement, or their non-disclosure agreement.  It's about what kind of people they want to be to each other as co-workers.  In the case of x.ai, that means joining a particular kind of mission.  While lots of companies say they have a mission, very few get their employees to state what it means to be on that mission--and that agreement is at the core of how x.ai onboards their employees.  It's a powerful and inspiring statement and we discuss how it effects their recruiting process.
