Marc Benioff promised to match the contracts of OpenAI researchers who resign to join Salesforce.
The offer comes amid the chaotic ouster of OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, and rumors Altman could return to the job.
"Salesforce will match any OpenAI researcher who has tendered their resignation full cash & equity OTE to immediately join our Salesforce Einstein Trusted AI research team under Silvio Savarese," Benioff, the Salesforce CEO, posted on X in a pledge to buy out the OpenAI researchers' contracts, along with any unrealized profits and sales incentives.
As many as 95% of OpenAI workers have also threatened to quit if Altman, the company's co-founder, is not reinstated.
