A conversation about menopause: supporting women's wellbeing in the workplace
There are currently around 3.5 million women over 50 in the UK workplace. A significant number of these working women will experience menopause symptoms that can, in some cases, be debilitating and have a significant impact on their work and personal lives. Symptoms can severely impact both physical and mental wellbeing at work and at home. Through this event, we have explored how we can best support employees managing menopausal symptoms. We discussed:
- What is menopause, what are the common menopause symptoms?
- How are employees affected at work due to symptoms of the menopause?
- Why is the menopause a workplace issue?
- How can a menopause friendly workplace be created?
