Welcome to New Pay Campus!
Welcome to all things New Pay!
- or as we like to call it: New Pay Cosmos.
Let’s learn, experiment and develop ideas together and reframe our mindsets about money in particular and compensation in the widest sense.
On campus we design and offer learning opportunities around the topic of New Pay, while creating a community of pioneers.
Our mission is to encourage organizations to engage in the design of their compensation philosophy and system to stay current.
In our Campus Formats we focus on all those questions which ignite people into further developing their compensation systems, their organization and their employees.
We emphasize on participation to develop processes that keep organizations and stakeholders involved.
We are convinced that participation is best achieved by integrating diverse perspectives and competencies from within the organization.
Let's kickstart your journey on our campus!
New Pay: what it is and how it started
New Pay- let's un-taboo talking about money.
Talking about money and salaries is still a taboo in many parts of the world. This is also the case in Germany, where the New Pay Movement began in 2017.
"New Pay" was coined by Nadine Nobile, Sven Franke and Stefanie Hornung in an attempt to include salaries into the already flourishing concepts of rethinking work in general.
So... what is New Pay?
In a nutshell: it’s a process to develop fair compensation systems that reflect the highly individual company culture of an organisation.
This concept orbits around 7 dimensions of New Pay:
Fairness: perceived justice (=procedural & distributive justice)
Participation: employees are involved in the design of the reward system
Transparency: transparent processes and/or salaries
Permanent Beta: adaptability
We-Thinking: team performance, egalitarian
Self-Responsibility: co-determination in performance evaluation & rewards
Flexibility: consideration of individual needs
You can see these values reflected in our Campus Principles as well.
Everybody is welcome to join our programs and events! It doesn’t matter whether you’re an HR expert, a manager, an employee or a student. Anybody can benefit from the New Pay perspective. We commit to ensuring a friendly and respectful learning-environment. This includes condemning any form of discrimination.

The English version of the New Pay Report is now available.
In a blog post for Corporate Rebels, we summarize key findings of the research project we conducted in cooperation with Pforzheim University.
In summary we think: More communication around the design of pay systems is needed!
In many organizations, compensation is regarded as an operational process that should run silently in the background. "Money is not something you talk about" is a common mindset acrioss companies and cultures. But when so much is changing in our working world, shouldn't we also take a look at compensation?
Have the needs of employees and organizations changed in terms of compensation? And if so, how?
Fixed salary bands, labour market data and negotiations – all are in the traditional compensation mix, and companies are reluctant to change. But what happens when responsibilities change? When people work in agile teams? When traditional hierarchies no longer exist? And employees are less satisfied with their compensation? New Pay could be an answer. A Blogpost from Stefanie, Nadine and Sven.
The task of promoting sustainability and climate protection is urgent and complicated. Many organisations play an arithmetic game. But can this work if performance measures and rewards stay untouched? Stefanie Hornung would like to offer 5 suggestions.

Learn More About Our Team
"Recognizing potential and enabling development" is the guiding principle of my work. As founder of CO:X, I accompany people in organizations to find new and, above all, their own ways to actively shape their future in a dynamic environment. In mid-2017, I initiated the New Work Women network. The goal of this initiative is to bring women's thoughts and ideas about the future of work to the world. Because, I am convinced, if we want to shape the challenges of the future in the interests of people, we need a wide variety of perspectives, skills and ideas.

Feeding from my background as Comp & Ben expert in German and Skandinavian organizations and as manager of international HR Teams I now act as coach and facilitator for new, more progressive forms of compensation aka.

Topics at New Pay Campus:
New Grading, Getting Started with New Pay
After my bachelor's degree in sociology in Freiburg, my journey led me to Braunschweig, where I have now been working as a co-creator at CO:X since June 2020. I am also studying for a master's degree in sociology and educational sciences. The topics close to my heart: Participation, Diversity and Fairness. Here at New Pay Campus, I'm our website whisperer and I'm here to help with any website-related questions.
Topics at New Pay Campus: website maintenance, organization, co-creator of formats (e.g. New Grading).
New Pay Communicator
As a New Pay expert and journalist, I want to support organizations in rethinking compensation systems and finding a common language for compensation issues. My approach: critically questioning beliefs and thus opening up possibilities. In this context, the topics of sustainability and climate protection are very important to me.
Social (Media) Butterfly
As a student of the interdisciplinary degree program "International Communication and Translation", I am passionate about languages, communication and education.
I am full of drive and eager to make a difference. The enthusiasm that all the co-creators in the New Pay Collective live inspires me time and again. Now, as a co-creator, I will contribute to filling the New Pay Campus with life. Together with the New Pay Collective, I want to advance the mission of creating more transparency and participation in compensation systems.
Topics in the New Pay Campus: organization, campus communicator, co-creator of formats
After completing my master's degree in social and organizational psychology, I am now one of the co-creators of the New Pay Campus. For me, aspects of living and working together such as well-being and satisfaction are particularly important. I would like to help shape the learning opportunities on campus in such a way that we provide people with the necessary knowledge and the appropriate tools to do so. New compensation systems in particular offer a lot of potential for triggering positive and beneficial psychological processes.
