Menopause in the Workplace – why it should be firmly on your HR agenda for 2022

About This Webinar

Wednesday 09 March, 09:30 - 10:15

Research commissioned by Health & Her indicated that the UK could be losing fourteen million workdays a year as a result of the menopause. Menopause, while being a natural stage of life experienced by most women, remains a taboo subject in many workplaces.

There has been increasing scrutiny of workplace practices around Menopause and recent data has shown the number of Employment Tribunal decisions citing menopause as a relevant factor has tripled over the last three years. On 23 July 2021, the House of Commons Women and Equalities Committee opened an inquiry into the impact of the menopause in the workplace.

The evidence highlights that it is time for employers to open their menopause dialogue with their employees and consider any steps they could take to make their workforce more inclusive. In this webinar, we looked at:

  • The impact of the menopause on those working who experience it

  • The existing discrimination legislation and workplace practices to see what employers could and should be doing to lessen the impact on employees

  • The potential adverse consequences of failing to do so and how getting it right can aid retention (almost 900,000 women left their jobs over an unidentified period of time because of menopause symptoms)
