Menopause Policy for Business
A menopause policy should be as commonplace as a maternity policy. The Government is starting to recognise this and will put legislation in place to ensure businesses have a duty of care to menopausal women. Now is the perfect time to act and demonstrate that your business is responding to the fastest-growing demographic in the workplace.
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. Bringing this menopause policy and support to your team will not only help to make them feel supported but as an organisation, you 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. The workplace cannot afford to lose these highly-skilled, experienced women and their valuable contribution.
