A powerful representation of oral health care personnel

STAL ry is the largest trade union for health personnel in Finland and the country’s only occupational association for dental nurses. Its members comprise around 6 000 dental hygienists, dental nurses, oral health care practical nurses, and students from these fields.

As a strong nationwide operator, STAL ry is raising the field’s familiarity and supervising the occupational benefits and rights for dental hygienists and nurses.

Ready for the congress

STAL ry needed a physical brochure to be distributed at the annual Finnish Dental Congress, which is the field’s most important annual event, therefore the printed brochure offered a great solution for this. The printed brochure was also provided for primary schools and high schools to use in vocational selection events.

The other part of the communication package – the online brochure – had of course a digital implementation destination: the association’s websites and Facebook page. In addition, the pictures taken in the shooting for the brochure could also be well utilized when illustrating the websites and social media channels.

A brochure funded by advertisers was a good option as an operating model for an association with limited resources.

The person who contacted us from JS Suomi had familiarized himself with STAL ry, which already made a good first impression. The operating model was clear and well-presented. We were given statuses for example about how the ad sales was going. I think the chosen advertisers were exactly the right ones: employers of the field. The contact persons were always available and it was pleasant to be in touch with all of them.

Authentic design to attract workforce and new members

The brochure was produced for STAL ry in order to boost the field’s attractiveness and draw more workforce. In addition to introducing job descriptions and education paths, the stories from a dental hygienist and a dental nurse gave the brochure authentic recommendations and demonstrated how one can get the education to work in this field of business and described what the work can be like.

At the same time, STAL ry got the opportunity to tell about their own operations to the potential members and co-operation partners. Thanks to the fact that the brochure’s content is easily approachable –  it also serves as a handy tool in the acquisition of new members.
