Forward Thinking Businesses
37.2% of management roles are held by women in the UK. Research shows that more diversity in management teams leads to better decisions, improve performance and drives innovation.
Around 3.5 million women over 50 are employed in the UK. Around 25% will suffer severe menopausal symptoms. Approximately 10% will leave work due to the menopause.
Let’s talk about menopause in the workplace
Women play a vital role in our workforce. Can we afford to lose their experience, knowledge and expertise? Can your business afford to lose their skills?
As women enter the peri-menopause and menopause they often feel many physical and emotional symptoms – including poor sleep, loss of memory and concentration – which make them feel less able to perform within their job role.
Rather than discuss a personal, and to many embarrassing, time of their life with management teams, women are more likely to leave work – taking their skill and experience with them. A loss to the business, and to their own sense of confidence and self-worth.
Be a business that leads social and professional change
The menopause is not a disease or illness. A few days off won’t ‘fix the problem’.
Education and the advancement of health and wellbeing in your business can replace sickness, stress and struggling employees with productive team members.
Peri-menopause and menopause are a natural process of the female body. With understanding, flexibility and people-centred policies, your business can be a place that leads social and professional change.
