Menopause and employment
To feel confident talking about the menopause you need to understand the facts. This guide explains how the menopause may affect someone in the workplace, and why it's important for you to have a menopause policy in your workplace.
To feel confident talking about the menopause, and to ensure any menopause policies you put in place are helpful, you need to understand the facts about this natural life process and how it affects work. For example, did you know that there are more than 30 physical and mental conditions that may be caused by menopause transition? A lack of awareness of these issues might be negatively affecting your organisation, but without understanding your role as the employer, it’s difficult to improve.
This PDF guide from the Phoenix Group aims to raise awareness of these issues, as well as encourage employers to actively think about the menopause in their organisation.
