Menopause in the workplace not just for “women of a certain age”
Miss Menopause has been created to fill the void of educational services needed by working women as they reach the menopause. It’s currently estimated less than 10% of companies across the UK are educating their workforce about the symptoms and impact that menopause may bring.
All reproducing women will go through the menopause with the average age being 51, however symptoms may begin many years before. Mental health issues can often arise due to menopause as well as a host of other symptoms. Everyone could be impacted by menopause in some way so best practice is to include everyone in the conversation.
Millions of days are being lost to presenteeism, which is driving down productivity. So you won’t find data on this problem as it’s currently hidden. As our workforce ages this is set to increase. Talented people are leaving as they often have no idea that their symptoms are menopause related.
You are invited to attend an interactive session to learn and understand what makes menopause a wellbeing and ED&I matter and have your questions answered.
This session is open to everyone. Menopause will affect us all in some way. So come along and find out how learning about menopause could help you in the workplace and your life in general.
