Every woman will experience menopause, with most seeing symptoms at age 51. And with women over 50 being the fastest-growing cohort of the UK workforce, a significant number of people are suffering avoidable obstacles at work because of a lack of menopause awareness and understanding.
Employers and employees must take combined action to support those experiencing menopause. Our online menopause awareness course has been designed to provide the vital information that all employees need to know. You’ll learn symptoms, misconceptions and how to overcome the common challenges menopausal women face.
Nearly 8 out of 10 menopausal women are in employment. While it’s different for every woman, menopause can lead to numerous negative health effects, including disrupted sleep, difficulty concentrating and poor memory. Some women endure hot flushes or night sweats and, in some cases, may battle anxiety and depression.
Because of these symptoms, 45% of menopausal women suffer at work or leave employment entirely. Without appropriate support and understanding, you risk falling productivity and a significant loss of talented and experienced staff.
Our online menopause training course gives you a greater understanding of what menopause is, the common symptoms and your legal roles and duties as an employer. You’ll be able to create a more open, productive work environment that makes employees feel supported, understood and able to achieve their best.
