The power of storytelling
Even in the corporate arena, storytelling has the power to touch emotions. And few businesses can capture the profound effect that they have on society like the human proteins manufacturer Octapharma.
Octapharma is the world’s largest privately-owned pharmaceutical company manufacturing human proteins from human blood plasma and human cell lines. Its therapies treat patients suffering from bleeding disorders and immune diseases and are used in critical care situations.
The Annual Report utilises patient, employee and donor stories to inspire both internal and external stakeholders. The magazine-style publication features articles about people, research, production and strategic initiatives. The stories combine to present a united global team working together to deliver the Octapharma vision: ‘Providing new health solutions to advance human life’.
The report is produced in English, French, German and Spanish editions and mailed to all employees. It is also widely distributed to healthcare professionals, hospitals, sales teams, business partners and suppliers.
