Over half the working population will experience symptoms of menopause at some point in their lives. Despite that, it’s still a taboo subject in many circles and isn’t talked about openly, especially in the workplace. As a result, many people who are negatively impacted by menopause aren’t getting the support they need.
Any approach to menopause needs to be inclusive because it’s important to recognise that not everyone who experiences menopause will identify as a woman. That’s why we refer to people throughout this course.
Whoever you are, someone you know or work with will experience symptoms of menopause during their lifetime. Understanding the challenges they face in the workplace will allow you to provide the support and practical solutions they need.
· Explain the impact menopause can have on people and communicate sensitively about these challenges
· Understand how important it is to have awareness and consideration, and challenge the stigma of menopause in the workplace
· Dispel the myths and misconceptions surrounding menopause and contribute to a more comfortable working environment for those affected by menopause
The symptoms of menopause are a perfectly normal part of life, but they can have a real impact on someone’s life and work. So, it’s important that managers have a degree of understanding about menopause and what some of their staff members might be experiencing. Supporting them in the right way will help you get the most from your team.
Everyone experiences different menopausal symptoms. As a manager, you need to be aware of the laws and stigma surrounding menopause and understand some of the challenges people might be facing, so you can provide support when someone needs it. In this second course, you'll learn exactly how.
This course is for any manager who wants to understand more about what menopause is, who it affects, and the impact it can have on individuals and the organisation as a whole. You’ll need this key information to prevent it from having a negative impact on your team’s work, to improve your team’s morale, retain valuable skills, and reduce sickness absence.
Despite it being a natural process, talking about menopause is still considered ‘taboo’ by many. Thankfully, menopause is becoming recognised worldwide as something that requires support in the workplace. After all, it might impact your ability to concentrate or carry out your role. Many people claim symptoms have a negative impact on their work. Getting help to manage this challenging time can, therefore, be a crucial part of your career success.
This course is for anyone who is going through or will go through menopause while holding down a job. It’ll help you understand what to expect from your organisation and feel more confident having conversations about menopause at work – both about your own symptoms and needs and discussing the topic with colleagues. Ultimately, it’s designed to reassure you that support is available and that menopause is no longer considered an awkward topic of conversation to bring up at work.
