Virgo Health

Summary of work

2014 was a transformational year for Virgo. Our operating environment evolved more rapidly than ever before, with huge implications for healthcare communications. As a values-driven, people-centric business, we interpreted these changes to form one all-encompassing realisation - our strategy had to be to transform our business from the outside in and inside out to one that is all about Being Human.

We overhauled our service offerings and added new ones including The Pharmacy, our creative hub uniting the latest thinking and capabilities in creative direction, design, animation, videography and digital to bring to life our clients ‘human’ stories and re-engineered our infrastructure to support and meet the needs of our clients and team.

Determined to live the Being Human philosophy from the inside out, we established a bespoke capability and behaviour framework, refined our team structure, our training offer and our package of person-centred benefits and redesigned our office.

At the same time we delivered human-insight driven, ground-breaking work that made a real difference for our clients, clinicians and patients from increasing the share of voice for Durex during the crowded Christmas period, to improving the plight of women with advanced breast cancer, to motivating investigators to deliver the highest quality clinical trial results. Through this, we exceeded our own expectations by delivering our biggest ever growth (32% YOY), winning 36 pitches (including our largest ever account) and welcoming 25 new joiners to our team.
