Menopause and the workplace


Understanding the legal responsibilities of employers and exploring ways to support employees and raise awareness of menopause in the workplace

According to NHS Employers, 3.5 million of Britain’s female employees are aged 50 or over and are likely to be approaching or experiencing the menopause. A recent survey conducted by BUPA and the Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development (CIPD) found that three in five menopausal women were negatively affected at work.

The menopause is therefore a key workplace issue that all managers need to have a greater understanding of. Not providing employees with the necessary support and reasonable adjustments at work can have serious implications.

Organisations where employees can talk openly about the menopause and feel supported are more likely to attract and retain a diverse and inclusive workforce. They can also benefit from reduced absence levels and improved employee retention. 

This event will cover the symptoms and misconceptions of the menopause, as well as employer responsibilities and the support mechanisms available for employees.
