Menopause is a key issue in the workplace and can impact on colleagues both directly and indirectly.
Over half the population will go through menopause, and it can affect people whatever their gender, race or age, with everyone’s experience of menopause being different. While some may sail through it with barely a symptom, it isn’t an easy transition for all, with 1 in 4 people experiencing significant and life-impacting symptoms. By increasing awareness of the menopause, encouraging open conversations, having an inclusive approach, and with the right support, we can help to improve the experience at work and in personal lives too.
