‘The menopause is still a taboo subject in many workplaces. This means employees with menopause symptoms, which can be severe, suffer in silence’ Claire McCartney, Diversity and Inclusion Advisor at CIPD.
It’s time to properly support women experiencing the menopause at work. There are now around 3.8 million women over 50 in work (DWP 20150. Therefore, the potential to support continued employment for women in the perimenopausal and menopausal age bracket, for the benefit of themselves and organisations as well as the wider economy, is considerable. At the same time, the quality of working life for women experiencing the menopause could be improved for millions now and in the future.
HR professionals need to take a proactive approach to the menopause at work through a dedicated policy or plan and create an open, inclusive and supportive culture. Line Managers need to brush up on the facts about the menopause and what they can do to support members of their team.
If you are ready to open the conversation on menopause at work on behalf of your employer then come along and find out how you can support your female talent through the menopause, helping them to thrive and feel valued, avoiding unnecessary demotions, exits or resignations and possible tribunal claims.
