Although incredibly simple, we rely on our methods of communication no matter where you are. If working from home, traveling for business, or in-office it is essential that you maintain proper communication with your project team, and the overall X Studios Team at all times. We typically use Slack to communicate with our team, as well as Clients and Contractors.
As an employee of X Studios, you will have access to certain non-public, confidential or proprietary information related to our projects, such as trade secrets, inventions, strategies, development of experiences, shows and/or characters, financial information, intellectual property (IP), products, pricing, know-how and technology.
It is your responsibility to ensure that this information is not disclosed. Do not post, e-mail or otherwise disclose such information, including any internal reports, policies, procedures or other business-related confidential communication.
All Employees (including Contractors) are required to complete the X Studios Mutual Non-Disclosure Agreement upon onboarding and before starting work.
Internal and external Non-Disclosure Agreements are fully automated, and electronic through our internal Team Site.
If you have any questions regarding the confidentiality or terms of any particular Non-Disclosure Agreement (including Clients), or questions regarding the confidentiality of any particular project, client, customer, or other sensitive information, please speak up and ask.
If you are managing a project, and speaking or working with a Contractor or Vendor, ensure that they have also signed the X Studios Non-Disclosure Agreement prior to disclosing any proprietary information.
As you know, X Studios has a very casual atmosphere. We work hard and play hard. However, your appearance matters when projecting a professional image. With customers and business associates visiting our office regularly, employees’ appearances are important and a reflection of the business.
Although incredibly rare, if we believe in our sole discretion, that your appearance is inappropriate or offensive, we will ask you to go home and change. Repeated instances of this conduct may result in discipline, up to and including termination.
