It is important for staff members going through the menopause that this experience is recognised by line managers; and that they are supported through this, sometimes challenging, period of their lives.
Educating staff about the menopause can empower individuals to make better decisions about their own physical and mental health with the support of an informed and understanding line manager.
Through online clinics and 1-to-1s, our facilitators aim to inform and educate line managers to better support their staff when going through this time and provide information for employees on managing menopause symptoms.
We have also developed a range of toolkits, factsheets and guides for our members to help line managers and colleagues deal with this important issue well in the workplace. For more information on the resources available, please email Stephanie Reid.
