Menopause in the Workplace

Home | News | Menopause in the Workplace

With World Menopause Day last month, and the continued press coverage, Menopause at work remains a significant focus for employers.

Are Your Employees Supported Enough?

A recent poll found that of those individuals experiencing symptoms of the menopause:

  • 23% have left jobs due to symptoms
  • 1 in 5 said they were not given a pay rise or promotion
  • 13% said they had to go through a disciplinary procedure

All this was despite the fact that nearly all businesses polled (95%) recognised that symptoms negatively impacted on work.

What Can Employers Do?

  • Start the conversation – hold open forums, consultations, surveys.
  • Introduce a menopause support policy.
  • Train your line managers on how to support impacted employees.
