Knowing where the journey is headed:
Successfully communicating Compensation & Benefits.
Unequity optimises communications to take good ideas to a whole new level of success. Whether employee share or bonus programmes, company car management or corporate pension schemes – we’ll help ensure your Compensation & Benefits programmes (C&B ) are a resounding success. For your employees and your company.
We are “Unique” in “Equity”. That’s why we call ourselves “Unequity”.
- About us
Unique, highly specialised and ground-breaking.
In the field of Compensation & Benefits.
After specialising in employee shareholder communications for many years, we’ve gained comprehensive expertise, deep insight and extensive experience in this complex field. This inspired us to establish an independent company dedicated to perfecting communications solutions for C&B: in 2011, Unequity was born.
We develop and execute communications concepts on intricate topics around C&B for customers from diverse industries.
To view our company trailer, click here.
We talk about complex topics.
To clarify them, and generate excitement.
Simple, clear – and simply correct. We’re endlessly fascinated by the many opportunities for getting a message across loud and clear: sometimes just an image, gesture or sentence is enough to illuminate the complex ideas behind a campaign. The effectiveness of simplicity always astounds us – and shapes how we communicate. Finding the best possible way to depict a topic is our goal.
To achieve this, we at Unequity really do our homework: We ask questions, collect data and strive to get to the bottom of the subject matter at hand. As a result, we’re able to recognise, demystify and clearly communicate a project’s risks and opportunities. The final result is always a clear, workable solution.
Our expectation: We explain complex topics in a way that makes them exciting, meaningful and easy to understand – inspiring employees on one hand and helping a project achieve greater success on the other.
Two shareholders with a passion for communications
Unequity loves it when people get involved: By making employees part-owners, we strengthen their ties with the company and boost their motivation and identification with us. Thanks to the communications campaigns that we’ve created for our clients, and our own experience, we’re confident that these are just some of the goals we can achieve with our share programmes.

Creative lead and associate. Responsible for creation and production, directing the creative teams and contributing to growth and development of the company.Gabriele Schwab at Xing
Achieving big ideas, professionally.
With a global team for international projects.
Our customers are highly diverse. So are our solutions. To make sure that we deliver, whatever the requirements, we’ve built up a network of expert employees and partners. Our permanent pool of designers, copywriters, planners, project managers, production managers and programmers consistently impress with their exceptional ideas. Our diverse team easily turns its hand to complex, multi-faceted projects.
There are no job opportunities available at this moment.
- Our goal
- Service offering
We’ll guide your C&B project to success.
You’ll be pleased to hear that enthusiasm can be planned.
Imagine for a minute that you have a wonderful programme – and no-one participates. That’s not just a pity; it’s damaging. For both the company and its employees. If a company wants employees to share in its success, all parties should stand to benefit. Whether it’s an employee share plan, management programme, bonus plan, company car management or corporate pension scheme – the success of every C&B plan stands and falls in the way in which it is communicated.
At Unequity, we’re there to ensure that a good idea doesn’t stumble at the hurdle of poor communications. We want our work to open doors and foster a culture of mutual understanding and trust. Our tool? Optimised communications that start and maintain a successful dialogue between a company and its employees.
From original idea to perfect execution:
What we do, at a glance.
We’re the trusted partner of choice for all marketing and communications services in the field of Compensation & Benefits. We’ll analyse your project, find the right idea and then bring it to life – perfectly. Whether in print or as an inter- or intranet solution, as a film or accompanied by an event – we always find the right platform for your communications.
And it goes without saying that we’ll adhere to your corporate communications and design guidelines. Or develop a suitable and attractive solution if your company has no closely defined corporate identity. And you can take reliable project management and precise timings for granted, every time.
We offer creative ideas and communications concepts for
- Employee share and management programmes
- Equity-market-based compensation schemes
- Bonus programmes
- Corporate pension schemes
- Company car management
Whatever your plan, we’ll make sure it’s executed right: We’ll look for or create suitable imagery and photos, illustrate, explain, invoke, animate, entertain, set free … our imagination has no boundaries, and neither should yours.
We stand for effective communications.
Our clients include big-name companies from highly diverse fields. Our energy and expertise currently for example supports the Compensation & Benefits Team of the Munich branch of McDonald's Deutschland Inc and several DAX 30 companies.
We’ll gladly personally present individual case studies.
Please get in touch to arrange a meeting! We look forward to hearing from you.
Improving corporate communications bit by bit, day by day.
We’re dedicated to working better, together.
We’ve made it our duty to optimise corporate communications at every level. This goes beyond effectively communicating C&B processes within individual companies, and extends to better connecting the entire C&B field and promoting the exchange of expertise within it. Rest assured that we never forget that we’re dealing with confidential information and sensitive data.
We are actively involved in the Global Equity Organization (GEO), the international umbrella group for equity programmes, and support the exchange of ideas and networked collaboration. This union of industry experts has been specialised in employee share plans for many years. Unequity Managing Director, Simone Schmitt-Schillig, is an active member of the GEO DACH Chapter (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) advisory board.
Simone Schmitt-Schillig is also an active member and moderator in a number of groups related to Compensation & Benefits on the business platform Xing:
- Global Equity Organization (GEO) DACH Chapter
- Benefits – Incentive Pay – Variable Compensation
Simone Schmitt-Schillig was one of 40 experts from ministries and organisations invited to attend a workshop of the BMWi (Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Technologie – Federal Institute for Economics and Technology) in Berlin on the 20 September 2011 , on the topic of employee capital shareholding. The panel discussed the current situation and possible future perspectives.
Simone was also a member and workshop leader at an event on “Modern Employee Economics”, hosted by the Hans-Böckler Stiftung (Hans-Böckler Foundation) from the 24 – 25 January 2012 in Frankfurt Am Main, Germany.

Good communication that reaps rewards:
The results of the GEO und F.A.Z. co-operation.
The GEO DACH Chapter and Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (F.A.Z. – Frankfurt Neswpaper) have been working on joint projects in the field of Compensation & Benefits in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Please see below for the interesting outcomes of this successful collaboration.
Eight-page special supplement in the F.A.Z.:
All about employee share ownership in Germany.
In co-operation with the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, an eight-page supplement appeared in Germany for the first time in June 2011. It contained comprehensive information, detailed articles and interviews with international experts under the headline “Employee share ownership”.
The supplement was so well received, that a second publication on the same topic has been planned for September 2012. It is the result of a renewed co-operation between high-ranking economic representatives and the Global Equity Organization DACH Advisory Board.

The F.A.Z. Institute und GEO DACH asked:
Everything you’ve ever wanted to know about employee share ownership in D.A.CH.
In September 2011, the GEO DACH Chapter and the F.A.Z.-Institut fu¨r Management-, Markt- und Medieninformationen (F.A.Z. Institute for Management, Market and Media Information) presented the joint study “Share-based Employee Profit-Sharing in Germany, Austria and Switzerland”. Unequity Managing Director Simone Schmitt-Schillig also played an active role in the realisation of the project. The study was based on a survey among stock corporations in the DAX, MDAX, ATX and SMI indexes, and focusses on the targets that organisations set themselves regarding their employee share programmes.
Please see here for further information on the study and source reference material:
The study is also available at Amazon:
Happiness is the only thing that is doubled when you share it.*
Good communications for a good cause.
Success always needs a bit of luck. We’re very aware of that, and so we choose to share some of ours by becoming actively involved in social projects. We regularly support those that mean something to us, and we like to have ideas ourselves for projects where we can involve our friends, acquaintances and clients.
School education for young asylum seekers
“Keep on writing, keep on helping”
He who writes, remains – and can really help, too! Following the great success of our 2012 New Year’s card, we repeated the idea for a two-way communication, a bit differently this time. For the 2014 festive season, we sent our clients and friends Christmas cards with a classic response element already provided. For each card that was returned to us by the end of January 2015, €20 was donated to the SchlaU School in Munich.
At the beginning of February, we counted the number of replies we’d received, did our sums, and rounded the balance up a bit. And finally, thanks to our clients’ and partners’ replies and to the donations which were attached to some of them, we were able to hand over €1,000 to the SchlaU School.
The SchlaU School is an officially recognised school for young asylum seeks in Munich; about 220 pupils have lessons there and successfully complete their studies. As well as their lessons, the young people are given targeted intensive individual training which helps them enter the German school and higher education system.
We chose the SchlaU School as a project because we think it’s important for us keep versatile in our society. Every day, we develop communication campaigns with and for our clients that aim at strengthening business cooperation. Campaigns for share programmes that are offered internationally, using communication measures that are implemented in many different languages (or partly translated) in countries with widely differing cultures and local customs. And so, because we believe it’s important that people who have been forced to flee from their homes are also given the chance to have an education which will serve as a solid basis for a successful life, we are delighted to be supporting this project.
Assistance for hearing-impaired children
Unequity sponsors a team in the Allgäu-Orient Rally
2014 marked the 9th installment of the Allgäu-Orient Rally. The race saw 111 teams in automobiles at least 20 years old embark from Oberstaufen (Germany) on an adventurous course that took them through Istanbul, Anatolia and Israel en route to Amman, Jordan. Once the teams arrived in Jordan the cars were sold. The proceeds, along with additional donations, were then passed on to assist social projects in the host countries.
Unequity supported the Bavarian team, “Schienenersatzverkehr Linie 49” (Rail Replacement Service Line 49), with t-shirts and hoodies for its members Dominik Francis, Yves Eisenreich, Sebastian Dengler, Kristof Kellermann, Sebastian Mattner and Felix Keller. After 7,130 courageous kilometers and a cornucopia of unforgettable moments, “our” team reached its destination at the Dead Sea with a superb fourth-place finish!
The proceeds from the event were then donated in Jordan to help, among other things, an aid project for hearing-impaired children. Due to a genetic disposition, Jordan has the world’s highest rate of hearing impairment. Under the guidance of German specialists Matthias Tisch and Annette Limberger, both former rally participants, children and even babies in Jordan receive hearing aids and cochlear implants.
We were delighted to support the project and the Bavarian team because it is an adventure for a good cause. The journey and the interactions we hear along the way are constant reminders of how fortunate we are in Germany and that we should keep those in mind who are less fortunate. As an agency we have the opportunity to support these types of extraordinary events with our graphics and project management experience. It is a joy to be involved, keeps everyday work life interesting and inevitably leads to interesting discussions within the company and beyond.

New Year 2012
Support for an integration kindergarten
“One for all ... and all for one”
Inspired by the question whether our friends, acquaintances and clients have as much fun communicating as we do, we had a great idea for New Year 2012: we sent about 200 recipients a postcard which could be used for all the year’s festivals: New Year, Easter and Christmas. This card was then sent back and forth between Unequity and our addressees. Regular contact was maintained – and for each card which was sent back to Unequity for New Year’s 2013, we donated €20 to St Josef’s, an integration kindergarten in the Schwabing area of Munich, where normal children and those with special needs can grow up and develop together.
Our project was a huge success! At the start of 2013, we were able to donate €1,240 to Sister Maria Birgitta, the head of the kindergarten. Sister Maria Birgitta said, “We’re absolutely delighted by this project, which is benefiting our children so greatly. Our building has been hit by cuts, and continuing our work would often be impossible without the help of donations. The kindergarten would like to say a big thank you for your support!” And we were delighted, too, to have enabled the renovation of the kindergarten’s outdoor playground!

We’re delighted to introduce Dominik Blex: Dominik is qualified in marketing communication and has come to us from a classic advertising agency.

We’re currently looking for someone to join us as an intern for three to six months, and also someone to be our new Senior Project Manager. If you’re interested, you’ll find the job descriptions on this website under “Jobs”.
15.01.2015: New Faces in 2015
We’re delighted to introduce our new colleague, Christoph Grass, who started at Unequity at the beginning of January! Christoph is at home in the agency world, bringing a wealth of experience from the diverse positions he has held, from strategic consultant to managing director. As a marketing expert, in the future he’ll work with our Unequity team to develop the right strategy for our clients’ most complex communication campaigns. With his experience of agency team building and management, he will directly support the Unequity management. Welcome, Christoph – it’s great that you’re joining us on our exciting journey!
Christoph Grass can be reached by email on Christoph@unequity.com
15.09.2014: One trainee qualified – and another already starting!
Two great reasons to celebrate! Our trainee Marc has successfully qualified as a graphic designer – and we’re lucky enough to have already got a new one: Maximilian Friz started his training as a graphic designer with us at the beginning of the new academic year in autumn 2014.
Welcome to the team, Maxi – we’re really pleased to have you on board! We hope you’ll learn a lot with us and will enjoy being here.
09.06.2014: Unequity team shows strong growth
A new colleague started with us in May, and we’d like to introduce her:
Tanja C. Strohe is a bundle of creative energy, and joined the Unequity graphics team on 1 May under the direction of Gabriele Schwab. Ms Strohe brings many years of agency experience as a graphic designer and art director, and a high level of creativity and organisation. As she says herself, she’s been looking for a place to work “where creativity is more than just a commodity”. She spent time in the Tirol and Hamburg but only found what she was looking for when she came back to the city where she started. We’re delighted that Unequity is the place she’s been looking for and hope we’ll be able to prove it in the years to come.
30.04.2014: Unequity cheers on Allgaeu-Orient Rallye drivers
Unequity supports team “Schienenersatzverkehr – Linie 49” on journey to Middle East
In 2014, the ninth Allgaeu-Orient Rallye will take place: 111 teams will drive vintage and classic cars (at least 20 years old) from Oberstaufen to Jordan. The route to Amman is likely to go via Istanbul, Anatolia and Israel – what makes it more interesting is that the drivers aren’t allowed to use navigation tools and are supposed to avoid fast roads and motorways: the idea is that participants should have real, personal contact with the country and the people. To make this happen, teams are given specific tasks along the way that they have to fulfil.
At the finishing line, the cars are donated to a good cause and social projects in host countries will also be supported (in 2013, a school in Anatolia was equipped with computers). The first prize is traditionally a (real) camel; in previous years, winning teams donated it to young Bedouins or local farmers to offer them some financial security for the future.
At Unequity, we thought this was a great idea so we decided to support the participating Bavarian team “Schienenersatzverkehr Linie 49”. In time for the start of the first stage of the rallye on 3 May, participants Stephan Ahrendt, Sebastian Dengler, Dominik Francis, Felix Keller, Kristof Kellermann and Sebastian Mattner were equipped with smart Unequity-designed team t-shirts and hoodies. To find out more about the rally, its objectives and its organisers, visit www.allgaeu-orient.de
26.11.2013: Step by step
On 14 October the Munich consulting agency will move into new premises and give more space to its art
As a specialist for internal business communication, Unequity Communication offers solutions around complex topics in the area of Compensation & Benefits. Founded in 2011, the agency’s clients include firms listed on the DAX30 and well-known brands including McDonald’s. So far, Unequity’s offices have been in the Schleißheimer Straße 26 but the team will now move to a new location so the old office space can be used for art. The concept for the new space will be called MuniqueArt and it will house a lively mix of contemporary art, artists, communication and consumption – and lots of surprises!
“MuniqueART” opens on 30 November – a shop concept in the widest meaning of the word, a market place for the art and artists of the future. It will offer a direct exchange between artworks and customers; advice about buying and selling; evaluation of contemporary art. Talented young artists will gain a platform for themselves and their art, while Unequity’s extensive network will bring artists and customers together in an informal setting.
Unequity is organising a series of small events – exhibitions, sales platforms, workshops and expert interviews – with the aim of bringing art and art lovers together, professionally and commercially. As a communication agency, Unequity can offer the artists valuable support. As MD Simone Schmitt-Schillig says: “We can offer the artists a complete package, from PR, marketing, social media, administration, project management, cooperation with labels and businesses, to sales of original works and limited editions – and, of course, we’ll organise exhibitions and events. Our aim is to make a fluid concept which is enriched by the creative ideas of everyone involved; which is always growing and can focus at different times on different things. It will be fun but always highly professional and oriented towards commercial success for artists and people who are interested in art.”
23.09.2013: A move. An anniversary. An opportunity for talented artists.
Located up to now in the Schleißheimer Straße 26, part of our team’s moving to a new location in the Maximiliansplatz 20 at the beginning of October. The firm’s headquarters will remain in the Türkenstraße 33a, so Unequity now has three addresses. In time for our second anniversary, we look forward to the move to our new offices: it’s the perfect environment for further growth in our core competencies, creative communication for employee share programmes and executive programmes, bonus schemes, company car rules, and offers for company pension plans. We just keep growing! And so under the Unequity GmbH umbrella, we now also have the art agency Unequity Creative, whose work can be seen at the Schleißheimer Straße 26. This location will offer a platform where talented, ambitious artists can present themselves and sell their work. More information to come.
13.08.2013: Unequity Creative supports ARTGRANT
Since January 2013, Munich agency Unequity Creative has been busy promoting contacts between (as yet) unknown artists and art experts, collectors, and art lovers in business and industry. As part of this project, Simone Schmitt-Schillig’s team is now supporting ARTGRANT.
ARTGRANT has been awarded every year by the ICAA (Independent Contemporary Art Advisors) to promote young artists and support contemporary art concepts. Artists who are eligible for the prize must be aged under 40 and come from the areas of painting, sculpture, photography, print, installation, video, media art and new media. It’s proved very popular: over 1,200 artists in Germany have applied for ARTGRANT so far this year. And from 2013, one guest country will always be invited to help promote the exchange of ideas between artists. This year, the guest country will be Turkey.
Made up of well-known art experts, the jury will change annually. Entries will be judged and prizes awarded in three categories; in addition there will be a prize awarded by the public, who can vote online. Interested? You can see all the participants and their work on the website at www.artgrant.de. Voting starts in October.
Simone Schmitt-Schillig loves the entries this year and is delighted by the idea of ARTGRANT. “I’m overwhelmed by the quality and range of the entries. No wonder ARTGRANT is already so well known amongst gallerists and collectors. We’re thrilled to be part of this exciting project!”
Unequity Creative supports, promotes and represents young artists, using all the professional communication channels at its disposal. As a unit operating under the umbrella of Unequity GmbH, the agency profits from the synergy with Unequity Communication, which specialises in creating the right communication solutions for global companies listed on the DAX30.
01.07.2013: Unequity offers training. Welcome, Marc!
Today is the first day at the agency for Marc Schegg (21). Marc is currently in the second year of a graphic design course and from today will learn everything he can from Gabi Feld (Director of Creation and Production) to prepare for his final exams next autumn. We’re delighted to have you here, Marc, and hope you’ll have fun as well as learn a lot! One thing we already know: Marc isn’t just creative when it comes to marketing materials – his music also gets them dancing in the Munich party scene! (Idea for Unequity Party and Event Unit …!?)
05.05.2013: Unequity brings Ray Moore to Düsseldorf

XX” – a call out to the art community – from 16-18 May in Dusseldorf. As a side project, the gifted artist also happens to make really good music. A fact that interested egoFM radio host Juli enough to invite Ray to a LIVE interview at the Munich studio. Tune in to the show “Metropol” today at 4 p.m. (Munich, 100.8 FM).
05.04.2013: Unequity Creative Brings Together Art and Clients
Our new unit is gaining momentum. The goal of Unequity Creative is to represent talented young artist, and foster contact between (still) unknown artists, art experts, collectors and art enthusiasts, in the areas of business and industry. In addition to the classic tasks involved with representing artists, we will make full use of our years of experience, and of the countless opportunities made possible by professional communication. Unequity Creative offers the whole package: from PR, marketing, social media, administration and project management, to cooperation with labels and companies, sale of unique pieces and limited editions, and organisation of exhibitions and cultural events.
Unequity GmbH is comprised of two units, Unequity Creative and Unequity Communication, both of which are headed by Managing Director Simone Schmitt-Schillig. They agency is designed to benefit from the resulting synergies.
22.02.2013: Unequity donates €1,200 to the Caritas Integration Kindergarten St. Josef
On 19 February 2013, Simone Schmitt-Schillig, Managing Director of Unequity GmbH, handed over a donation of €1,200 to the Caritas Integration Kindergarten St. Josef. Located in Munich’s Schwabing neighbourhood, the kindergarten offer typical kids and kids with special needs the chance to develop and grow together.
Sister Maria Birgitta, the centre’s head, accepted the donation: “We are delighted by this contribution that will benefit our children. Our centre is also affected by budget cuts and often our work would not be possible without the help of donations. The integration kindergarten is very thankful for the support!”
The project is based on a unique idea rooted in the motto „One for all...and all for one“. For New Year 2012, the communication agency Unequity sent a postcard to numerous friends, acquaintances, and customers. The same postcard was then sent back and forth between Unequity and the addressee for various occasions throughout the year – New Years, Easter, and Christmas. This results in regular contact – and for each card sent to Unequity for New Years 2013, Uniquity donated €20 to the kindergarten.
Unequity’s Managing Director Simone Schmitt-Schillig is pleased with the projects first round, which is set to continue in the future: “Social involvement is an important topic for us. At the Kindergarten St. Josef, children learn from a young age how to be respectful, open and tolerant of each other. This impressed us and that’s why we would like to support the cause.”
06.12.2012: HR Excellence Award for Unequity and McDonald’s Deutschland
Valuable Accolade for Human Resource Projects
Just one year after the agency’s founding, the Unequity GmbH team joined client Yvonne Prang, Senior Department Head HR, Compensation & Benefits at McDonald’s Deutschland Inc., in celebration of their Human Resources Excellence (HRE) Award. At yesterday’s HRE Award ceremony, McDonald’s Deutschland, Inc. and Unequity received a prize in the category “Benefit and Incentive Programme” for the launch of an enhanced company pension plan for McDonald’s Deutschland Inc. and the corresponding campaign “McBenefit – Happy ever after.”
“We are very pleased to receive this accolade. McBenefit is an important part of our attractive Compensation & Benefit package and supports our recruiting and retention strategy as a socially responsible employer”, Prang said in regard to the award. Since mid-2012, employees above the general pay scale can take advantage of the new McBenefit company pension plan. It expands on the existing care system and allows for flexible adaptation. Within a certain care level, employees have the chance to select a package tailored to their their personal needs.
Unequity developed attention-getting communication measures that brought employees of McDonald’s Deutschland Inc. closer to the complex topic – in a highly personal and slightly emotional way. From the target group analysis and strategic planning, to the creative design of the communication measures and their production, to the distribution of individual info packets, the agency created a well-rounded concept together with the client’s team. “We look back on a very successful first year. My team and I are proud to work for such great clients like McDonald’s, and other DAX companies. And now with the addition of this valuable award!”, said Managing Director Schmitt-Schillig.
Every year, the magazine Human Resources Manager presents HR Excellence Awards to recognise achievements in Human Resources Management. The awards aim to raise public awareness about modern HR projects marked by great innovation.
