How PLMR helped an absence management platform find its voice on social media.




The Situation

PLMR was tasked with boosting the social media platform of FirstCare, an absence management firm with fascinating data on UK workplace health and absence.

What we did

PLMR created eye-catching graphics displaying this data and engaging written content to go with it – the results after only a month of social media management by PLMR were astounding. 

Part of our social media strategy included creating bespoke motion graphics to further communicate the findings of First Care’s Index Reports. These motion graphic videos took the reports statistics and communicated them in a visually interesting way. PLMR created 3D assets and animated charts, as well as a dynamic 3D map of the UK which reacted to absence statistics.​

The animations PLMR created for each index reports were eye catching for both industry professionals and social media users seeing the statistics for the first time. The motion graphics were also cut down to create sharable content for social media which helped push the release of each report.
