Menopause in the Workplace

The menopause is a natural part of ageing that usually occurs between 45 and 55 years of age as oestrogen levels decline.

Studies have shown that menopause symptoms can have a significant impact on attendance and performance in the workplace. With our population now living longer, working longer, it’s vital that staff are supported to stay well and thrive in the workplace.

Menopause is not just a gender or age issue, as it can impact on colleagues both directly or indirectly, and it should therefore be considered as an organisational issue. All businesses / managers need to know about it, and how they can support their staff. Managers should also be aware of the indirect effects of the menopause on people. The transition can put additional pressures and changes on relationships, it is therefore important managers signpost to appropriate support channels.
