Helping employers create menopause confident workplaces
The importance of focusing on menopause in the workplace
Menopausal women are the fastest growing workforce demographic and while menopause is an inevitable, natural life stage which all women will go through, it is rarely talked about in the workplace.
Left unsupported menopause symptoms can lead to increased absence, a loss of confidence and reduced performance. Over 25% of women considering leaving the workplace, because of their menopause symptoms, taking significant knowledge, skills and experience with them.
Organisations with an ambition to achieve gender equality and diversity need to understand the impact menopause can have on women's physical, emotional and mental health and actively take steps to support a menopause confident and inclusive work environment.
Supporting menopause in the workplace
At Menopause 51 we recognise the importance of providing workplace support to women, their line managers and the wider business.
By raising awareness and understanding of menopause you can set a positive narrative around how menopause is discussed and considered.
Investing to support women as they navigate this natural life transition can bring huge benefits to engagement, wellbeing and organisational performance.
Working with us to achieve menopause inclusion
All organisations are different and Menopause 51 can work with you to develop the right approach to make yours menopause friendly and a great place to work.
Our menopause webinars, workshops and individually tailored coaching programmes will raise awareness of menopause, open up the conversation and support women to thrive during these years of change.
Meredith delivered an informative and engaging session about the menopause. We were delighted with the number of people who signed up and her authentic, non-judgemental approach made people feel comfortable to share their ideas and experiences. This was a really important first step for Girlguiding. Everyone felt more confident by the end of the session to be part of the menopause conversation and it has sparked lots of interest in our menopause support network.
