9 out of 10 menopausal women say symptoms impact their work

1 in 4 say they don’t feel supported by their manager

One third hide symptoms at work, fearing for their jobs

It is estimated that 14 million working days are lost to menopause each year.

As the menopause becomes more openly talked about, companies are recognising the need to take action within the workplace; however, tasking HR to write a menopause policy and providing staff with fans doesn’t tackle the root cause.

Whilst every company that adopts a menopause policy, makes reasonable adjustments and raises awareness is making a step in the right direction, to truly overcome ignorance and destigmatise menopause in the workplace companies need to commit to education and creating an open culture where menopause is openly discussed.

We want to ensure that companies are providing people in menopause, and everyone around them with the evidence-based information, advice and support they need. Because when employers and employees are knowledgeable and better understand perimenopause and menopause symptoms, organisations, and society, will see improvements in employee wellbeing, productivity and performance, staff retention and morale.

Carrying The Menopause Charity Workplace Quality Mark demonstrates the organisations commitment to improving the work environment where all staff are comfortable talking about women’s health, tackling stigma and crucially ensuring people in menopause have the knowledge they need to access treatment.
