In January 2018, a staff fitness tracker challenge was initiated at Keele University. Two departments from the University at a time compete against one another over a two week period, before step totals are compared. The total compared is the average steps per person meaning departments can all take part, regardless of size. Fitness trackers were invested in to support the scheme, while staff could also use their own. To date, the project has had ten departments competing from across the University.
