University of Chichester implements wellbeing programme

University of Chichester-2014

The University of Chichester has launched a wellbeing programme for its 650 employees.

The university’s Jump programme, which is provided by Green Rewards, is based on a modular system to engage staff and reward for taking positive steps to improve their wellbeing.

Those who register will be placed in teams by department and will earn points for participating in themed activities such as walking and recycling. There are seven themes, with various behaviours encouraged in each.

Teams will compete to win a top prize of £500 to donate to a charity of their choice or spend on green items. There will also be a second place prize of £250, while four further runners up will receive £100.

Kate Cathie, environment and sustainable development co-ordinator at the University of Chichester, said: “The university has made great progress in sustainability over recent years, and we see Jump as a set forward towards achieving our goals.

“I’ve had a great response from both staff and students and they’re really looking forward to getting stuck into the programme.”
