Menopause Support

Employers Can Support their People Through Menopause

Menopause education is not just about those experiencing menopause – As with mental health, managers and colleagues need to understand how they can support anyone going through the experience… The culture you create and the potential for “reasonable adjustments” similar to any other condition that affects a person is crucial.

  • Approximately 13 million women in the U.K are either peri- or post menopausal
  • An older and more mixed workforce means this is an increasing issue in the workplace
  • Symptoms can last up to 15 years
  • Over 60% of women experience symptoms resulting in behaviour changes, including anxiety and depression
  • 1 in 4 women will experience severe debilitating symptoms

Our Menopause experts are extremely knowledgeable and can create any specific content to a client brief and reflect the needs of specific groups.

These sessions have been delivered to many corporate clients, including Lloyds Bank, Shropshire NHS Trust, Dorset CCG, Ministry of Justice, Tata Steel, Astra Zeneca, Sodexo, Investec, Gowling WLG, Abbot Mead Vickers and Siemens Plc.
