Menopause and the workplace - digital event


Overview

This 3-hour digital event looks at the symptoms and misconceptions surrounding the menopause, as well as the legal position and support available for both employees and employers.

Business need

Women currently represent 47% of the UK workforce, 28% of whom are aged 50 and above. The average age for a woman to go through the menopause is 51.

Each woman’s experience of the menopause is different and can present a variety of symptoms. Some of which can lead to increased absence and lower levels of engagement and productivity. Without the right support at work, women can feel they have no choice but to leave their job and maybe the workplace altogether.

Managers can find it difficult to discuss the menopause with their staff, due to a lack of understanding and fear they may make things worse. However, the legal implications of not providing employees with the necessary support and adjustments at work can be costly. 

This digital event will provide you with a clear understanding of the menopause, including common misconceptions and the legal position. You will learn about the wide range of symptoms and receive guidance on the support mechanisms available to employees going through the menopause.

Delivered via Zoom, you will have the opportunity to interact with our knowledgeable trainers and explore some of the challenges you may be facing.

All delegates will receive an electronic certificate of attendance for their participation in the training.

Suitable For

Delegates from all sectors of industry including: managers, supervisors, team leaders, HR professionals, business owners, trade union representatives, employee representatives and individuals who wish to enhance their CPD.
