Project: Investigating the impact of behaviour change techniques on break taking behaviour at work

Completed but not published

This project was submitted on 23/01/2014

This project will take a mixed methods approach to investigating break taking behaviour at work, within a constrained office-type environment. A field study will be undertaken which records data about how regularly staff get up from their desks before and after behaviour change interventions. This quantitative data will be supported with focus group data, which explores the attitudes and motivations underpinning the break taking behaviours.
