Dr. Andreas Lieb, Director of Human Resources at InnoGames, added: “We expect several positive effects from our publication, including lower dropout rates in the application process and greater attractiveness for talent from outside the games industry. We are also sending a clear signal to potential female applicants that pay gaps don’t exist at InnoGames. The bottom line is that this is a ‘win-win-win’ situation. The company, our employees, and current and future applicants all stand to benefit from this disclosure. We appreciate that salaries can be a very delicate topic, and we are aware that the decision to publish our bands comes with a certain level of risk, but we firmly believe this is the right move for both InnoGames and the industry.”
The salaries stated are gross annual salaries for employees with place of employment in Germany. Salaries in other countries may vary. All of InnoGames’ job advertisements will contain salary information from now on, provided that a salary band has been defined for the career model in question. Due to cost/benefit considerations, a salary band will only be created once at least six employees share the same career model. The transitional salaries indicated in the salary bands apply to employees who have not yet quite reached the next career level but are on the right track and at the same time doing an excellent job.
