Every winter, around 34,000 workers sustain injuries from skiing and snowboarding. Suva’s new app and communication measures seek to prevent this.
Accidents in recreational sports mean pain, restrictions, and inability to work for those affected. For insurers, this means annual costs of over 300 million Swiss francs.
Because more than 90% of accidents are self-inflicted, Suva is focusing on increasing information and awareness among snow sports enthusiasts. The "Slope Track" app developed for this purpose measures stress while skiing, raises awareness of relevant risk factors, and provides tips for improving physical performance and reducing stress.
It is promoted with a newly developed campaign in the typical Suva style of recent years. It shows protagonists who master tricky situations in snow sports only thanks to much more luck than brains or skill.
The central advertising medium is the 35-second TV spot, but the campaign plays a wide range of media: from various online clips, banners, and display ads to print advertising, social media activities, and articles in industry newsletters to chair-hanger advertising and digital playouts on public transport in the ski resorts.
"Are you already living the best version of your life?" This is the question posed by our latest campaign, which promotes the canton of Graubünden as an attractive place to live under the generic term NaturMetropole.
The process began with a business challenge: How does Deutsche Telekom grow in the youth market, which has millions of customers?
In its summer series, the industry portal "Persönlich" put the spotlight on people from the media, advertising and marketing whose work is otherwise little visible to the public. One of them was Simone Jehle, Managing Director.
