EAUC round up and our Fitbit winner announced!

It’s been an exciting summer so far and our JUMP team have been busy spreading the word about employee engagement in sustainability and wellbeing.

Last week we were at the EAUC’s Collaborations for Change Conference, where we exhibited our JUMP behaviour change programme. The conference kicked off with an insightful welcome address, which identified ‘lack of staff engagement’ as the second biggest barrier facing an institution in achieving their carbon reduction targets.

Another highlight was the workshop “Points Mean Prizes” by our partners Bournemouth University and the University of Winchester. Both universities spoke on how JUMP’s use of gamification and rewards enabled them to successfully engage their staff in sustainability and wellbeing activities and work towards their environmental targets. 

We also had fun quizzing those who passed by our stall on their waste and recycling knowledge, with a prize for the best answer. Congratulations to Emily W from De Montfort University who won a Fitbit alta HR! You can view the responses to some of the questions from the quiz below.

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.

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.
