Last week Michael Lynch from RBS and Graham Simmonds from the Jump team presented the Jump Employee Engagement Programme as a case study at the 2017 Recycling and Waste Management conference. This year’s event was hosted in partnership with CIWM, at the NEC in Birmingham. The conference provided a platform for discussions and opportunities for collaboration to achieve a more sustainable and resource-efficient future. Attendees included experts and key players from the waste, energy, recycling and water sectors.
The presentation focused on how RBS saved 5% on energy bills through the Jump Employee Engagement Programme, which generated increased colleague engagement in sustainable behaviours. The talk was attended by an engaged audience, and listeners were given a detailed description of Jump’s journey from a successful pitch to the Innovation Gateway through to the UK-wide rollout of Jump and the plans to extend throughout the EMEA and India. Interest was high and Graham and Mike were posed with some interesting questions from the audience which they got stuck into answering before the allotted time ran out. Attendees were pleased to receive the ever-popular seeded Jump cards, made from biodegradable post-consumer material that is infused with wildflower seeds to be planted and grown after use. These cards were utilised to boost engagement in the RBS JUMP programme and they worked just as well at RWM. Alongside the seeded cards, case studies of the RBS Jump programme were also distributed.
