1 in 10 women have left work because of symptoms of menopause, research has revealed. “Women over the age of 50 are the fastest growing demographic in the workplace and more support should be offered to ensure they remain in work because women around this age are usually at their most productive and experienced during this life stage,” (Janet Lindsay, CEO of Wellbeing of Women, People Magazine, 2022).
Join us in our menopause awareness event on the 23rd of February led by Becky, a women's health account manager from Theramex, a dedicated Women's health company. The session will cover the effects going through menopause has in the workplace and how to create a positive and open environment. Managing the effects of menopause is crucial for both employers and members of staff. It’s important for employers to be aware of all the symptoms of those who might go through menopause and support them equally. Being aware of this can help staff continue to do their job confidently and allow you as an employer to support them. Anyone can become a menopause champion supporting their colleagues through menopause which is a time of heightened stress. The experience of menopause can differ from person to person. Symptoms of menopause can be severe and have both mental and physical effects. Let's work together to make Swansea a menopause-friendly city.
