Primary outcomes are: 1) Uptake of the Toolkit overall and within the partner-determined priority sectors 2) Implementation of the Toolkit by workplace teams 3) Effectiveness of the Toolkit in reducing employee workplace sitting time Hypothesis (two-tailed): the Toolkit will elicit significant changes in workplace sitting time following exposure to the program (at 3 months) and in the long term (at 12 months) Target is 20 minute reduction per 8-h workday
Key inclusion criteria
Based on data reported by the champion as part of the online registration process, eligible work teams will be those with: a minimum of five staff; job roles or tasks that predominantly involve desk-based work; and, a staff member willing to perform the duties of a workplace champion. For large organisations, including those located across numerous sites, multiple work teams from the one organisation will be eligible to participate. Once eligibility is confirmed, a unique password will be allocated to allow the champion access to the BeUpstanding Champion Toolkit and associated resources, and enable data to be identified by work team. All employees within a participating work team will be invited by the champion to participate in the program and its evaluation.
