The menopause is a key workplace issue, for which all managers need to develop a greater understanding. Managers can find it difficult to discuss the menopause with their staff, usually due to a lack of understanding and fear they may make things worse. Poor management can exacerbate these problems by not providing employees with the necessary support and reasonable adjustments.
Focusing on the experience of living and working with the menopause, this event will share practical ways of engaging with your workforce and good practice in developing and implementing a workplace policy
We will discuss the symptoms and misconceptions of the menopause through live stories from our guest speakers, as well as employer responsibilities and the support mechanisms available to employees

Whilst the symptoms of the menopause, and their impact on working life, can vary widely, for some, it can result in increased absence and lower levels of engagement and productivity.
Organisations where employees can talk openly about the menopause and feel supported, are more likely to attract and retain a diverse and inclusive workforce. They can also benefit from reduced absence levels and improved employee retention.
