Support for Business

Menopause Policy

 

A menopause policy should be as commonplace as a maternity policy, and the Government is starting to recognise this and will put legislation in place to ensure businesses have a duty of care to menopausal women. so now is the perfect time to act.

We can help businesses looking to introduce support to female employees in the form of workshops and ongoing advice to supplement your menopause policy.

We have created an informative workshop to help support and inform your staff on how to cope with their symptoms. With this your teams will not only feel supported but you as an organisation will see a reduction in absenteeism.

It was reported in the Guardian that women have seen their careers ruined by menopause symptoms such as anxiety, confusion and loss of confidence. Some have faced disciplinary action and many have been forced to take time off, while others have sold their homes so they can afford to work part-time or stop working altogether.

Menopause Workshop

 

Our half day workshop will focus on food, exercise, mental health and medical treatment and will be led by experts from the industry.

It allows businesses and their employees to open the menopause debate in an open and engaging, non-threatening way.

Our workshop will focus on positive ways to manage the menopause providing employees with the right tools to empower them and increase their confidence when facing the menopause.

We can adapt the workshop to suit your organisation and run it the way you feel will be best suited to your organisational culture.
