Recent Projects

Bryan G Hall were appointed by CEG as Travel Plan Coordinator for One North Bank, Sheffield. Our primary focus is to promote sustainable transport and encourage staff working in the city centre office to consider sustainable modes of travel for journeys to and from work.

Annual travel surveys have been undertaken since we began this role, we have promoted national and local events on site, created an onsite cycle repair kit and prepared a bespoke travel guide. In June 2018, this year’s Travel Surveys took place to establish existing staff travel patterns. They found that a large percentage of staff would consider travelling sustainably and are particularly interested in car sharing.

In the coming weeks, we are hosting a Travel Surgery at One North Bank to promote health and sustainable travel, giving us the opportunity to speak to staff and answer any travel queries they may have.

Bryan G Hall are working in partnership with Sheffield City Council to promote ‘Shape Up 4 Business’ whereby colleagues from One North Bank can collectively work towards a healthy lifestyle, for FREE! The programme runs a series of workshops focused on health, nutritional advice and easy active changes.

Bryan G Hall have been working with Morrisons at their store in Wymondham for the last 5 years to implement the Travel Plan. The main aim of the Travel Plan is to increase awareness of and encourage the use alternative modes of travel rather than the private car.

After 5 years, Bryan G Hall and Morrisons staff have achieved:
• A 10% increase in the number of employees walking to/from work,
• 30% of employees no longer drive to work,
• Employee perks such as discounts at Halfords, Evans Cycles, Wiggle and PedalSure have been promoted and used by employees,
• The My Travel Card scheme has been launched to reward employees who travel by sustainable modes of transport.

Bryan G Hall created and launched the Morrisons My Travel Card in April 2018 to coincide with a travel surgery at the store. The reward card enables staff to gain a free breakfast for every 8 sustainable trips they make into work. Stamps can be gained for journeys such as walking, cycling, public transport or car sharing. We look forward to seeing the success of the scheme in the coming weeks with a view to using it at other stores throughout the county!
