The award is part of the inaugural Menopause Friendly Employer Awards, organised by Menopause Friendly and supported by the CIPD.
The awards attracted over 85 entries across 10 categories. Most notable was that the two categories with the highest number of applications were ‘Most Open Workplace’ and ‘Best Support Group’ demonstrating the commitment by employers to open conversations and normalise menopause in the workplace.
Alongside the headline sponsor HSBC UK, first direct and M&S Bank, the Awards are supported by BAE Systems, Santander, Lloyds Banking Group, Boots, Peppy, Bristol Myers Squibb, Celerity, Theramex and Vitabiotics.
“The response to our awards is both humbling and encouraging.”
“Seeing the first-class businesses supporting the event and the wide array of entries from employers, large and small, just goes to show the progress being made.”
“There is remarkable work being undertaken by many employers: business by business we are changing hearts and minds to make a difference to people’s lived experience of menopause in the workplace.”
