What does being ‘menopause friendly’ mean?

It means being clear how you support menopause in your workplace, creating an environment where menopause can be talked about easily and putting right support in place for your colleagues.

The facts 

Menopausal women are the fastest-growing workplace demographic. The average age for a woman to reach menopause is 51, and nearly 8 in 10 are in work. With 3 in 4 experiencing symptoms and as many as 1 in 4 considering leaving work during their menopause, it’s a key area for employer focus.

The benefits to employers

An inclusive workplace and colleague wellbeing are at the heart of menopause in the workplace support. And in turn, this can bring a host of other benefits, including increased productivity, lower absence levels, fewer recruitment costs and a reduced chance of being taken to tribunal.

What employers can do

Join the inspirational organisations who are taking action. Our roadmaps, workshops and resources can take you right through to Menopause Friendly accreditation, demonstrating your commitment to providing the right awareness, education and support.
