The ideas are flowing at the University of Chichester.

There’s a real buzz around sustainability at the University of Chichester, and it’s largely due to their Jump engagement programme.

One of the most interesting things that Jump has uncovered is the fantastic range of ideas that the University population, staff and students, have around sustainability and well-being. Alongside the performance and data monitoring in modules such as ‘Energy Saving’ and ‘Waste and Recycling’, we have also been rewarding and recognising people for their suggestions and bright ideas.

Our Customer Service team have been delighted to receive a wide range of suggestions and ideas, such as putting ‘Switch-Off’ reminders in new places around the office and making notepads using scrap paper. If the suggestion is a good one, points are awarded to the team that submitted it, which helps them climb up the leader board – and points are also given if the best ideas are implemented!

Many of the behaviours that the Jump programme is promoting at the University of Chichester are great for people’s health, as well as the environment. Employee Benefits recently published an article focusing on the well-being benefits that the University’s employees are experiencing through engaging with the programme, see the article here.

By engaging their people, the programme is helping the University of Chichester realise and accelerate its sustainability ambitions. If you would like more information about how we could do this for your organisation, please feel free to contact me on or by calling 020 7326 5055.

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.
