Menopause – proactive support

Posted on: October 6th, 2021 by Ginny Hallam

If employees are experiencing menopausal symptoms affecting their working life, below are a few ideas on what you can do to help…

Policy – introduce a menopause policy to show a proactive approach to supporting those affected and create a more open culture of understanding around adjustments that might be required. We’ll be adding one to our Intelligent Employment platform shortly. Click here to find out more about accessing Intelligent Employment.

Training – support your managers so they’re comfortable to have conversations to discuss potential adjustments and support those suffering with symptoms, including how this might impact your absence and performance processes.

Point of contact – appointing a menopause or wellbeing lead will give employees someone to direct questions to, raise concerns, or find additional resources for advice and support where needed.

In our next update, we’ll look at proposed protections on the horizon for women going through the menopause.
