Menopause: Providing Support (for managers)

Overview

Having a 'funny moment' isn't usually very funny at all. Although menopause is a totally normal and natural part of ageing, the symptoms that come with it can have a real impact on someone's life. That includes at work as well as in private, so it's important that managers have a degree of understanding about menopause and what some of their staff members might be going through.

The symptoms of menopause are different for everyone, but offering the right support, guidance, and resources to employees can make a real difference to them, and the organisation as a whole. As a manager, you need to be aware of the laws and stigma surrounding menopause and understand some of the challenges people might be facing, so you can provide support when someone needs it.
