Menopause – Awareness at Work (Managers and Employees)

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.

Who should take 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.

Menopause - Asking for Support (for Employees

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.
