A successful launch for our first NHS Trust

Green Rewards NHS sustainability programme

It’s been a big week for NHS sustainability!

100 members joined in just two days, resulting in the launch of our first employee engagement programme with an NHS Trust getting off to a great start.

Green Rewards launched to over 20,000 employees across Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT). It covers their nine hospitals as well as the city’s NHS community health services through Manchester Local Care Organisation (MLCO). The fun and engaging online platform and mobile app encourages a range of positive behaviours. Themes covered include; Engage, Nature, Nurture, Consumption, Journeys and Fuel. Activities include switching off electrical equipment, pledging to use less plastic, a step challenge, meat free Mondays and spending time outdoors – all of which we know are key to reducing our carbon footprint and boosting our wellbeing!

Employees earn ‘Green Points’ for taking part and can track the impact they are having in real time. Those that earn the most points in a month are awarded a voucher from a choice including local cinemas and high street vouchers – whilst top performing departments are rewarded with donations for Trust charities, with £1,000 to be donated in the first year of the scheme.

The NHS sustainability and employee engagement scheme launch has already been picked up by six media outlets including employee benefits, FMJ and edie.net  – so good news all round!

Head of Communications

Bethany Fruen

Since joining Jump fresh out of university back in 2013 I’ve seen many changes in the way we communicate – both as a company and more widely within the sustainability industry. The current shift of sustainability to the mainstream is accelerating at a pace and it’s exciting to be part of this step change.  The insight I get from individual participants in our client programmes is invaluable as it helps me figure out the best way to get our messages across.

My team and I use digital communications to recognise individual and team success, providing information in a fun, meaningful way that encourages people to take action. It’s about creating a feedback loop where people see that their actions are having an impact and this is very powerful in creating positive change within an organisation.


Graham Simmonds

Chief Executive

Graham Simmonds

As CEO of Jump I lead a talented team of professionals committed to sustainability and wellness.  For much of my 35 year career I’ve been immersed in environmental issues, particularly how to engage people in practical action.  Previously I built Trees for Cities from start-up to a global, award-winning charity as its founding chief executive, and I loved developing new initiatives such as The Edible Playground and the Million Trees Campaign.  

In 2011 I set up Jump as I felt organisations large and small want to motivate action amongst their people around wellbeing and the planet, and a professional team dedicated to this purpose would help them accelerate their journey.  I’m also proud to chair the Reward Gateway Foundation which supports organisations and projects that address inequality and disadvantage, with the ultimate mission of making the world a better, fairer, safer and more equal place to work.
