Increase the engagement and retention of some of your most experienced people by making your organisation menopause-friendly.
At least fifty percent of women say the symptoms of menopause make work more challenging. That shouldn’t mean that women have to press pause on their careers or suffer in silence. Awareness, education and small workplace supports can make the world of difference in navigating this natural and temporary lifestage.
Supporting people through life's transitions is a smart business move:
When there is no workplace support, about 1 in 4 women consider quitting their jobs during the menopause transition. Don’t let talent walk out your door due to denial of this natural life stage.
Menopausal symptoms typically occur around the age when women can be stepping up into more senior roles. Small workplace adjustments can help a woman fulfil her career potential.
The risk of depression is 3 x greater during the menopause transition. Being forewarned is forearmed.
Menopause has been missing from D&I and WH&S agendas, despite the fact it affects half of humanity.
Menopause is unique to the female biology, and requires different accommodations than a male body. Different treatment, not the same treatment, brings true equality.
Allowing women to work with dignity is a humane thing to do.
