900,000 women in the UK have quit their jobs due to menopause. Yet, a staggering 84% of businesses don’t provide menopause at work training for staff, or 81% have any sort of menopause policy in place.
With more than 4.3m women over 50 in employment in the UK, menopausal women are the fastest-growing demographic in work places across the UK. 80% of women experiencing some symptoms of the menopause and one in four have severe symptoms, including anxiety and depression. As such, organisations are being urged to introduce menopause at work policies – or at the very least, accommodate those that are suffering and educate their colleagues.
Date for your diaries: World Menopause Day is 18 October 2023.
Our menopause at work trainings and consultations are delivered by a qualified menopause specialist, with a MSc in Nutritional Medicine and 17 years experience delivering corporate workshops.

Menopause at Work - Workshop for Managers
Everyone should feel comfortable having a conversation with their manager about the menopause, yet 32% of menopausal women cite an unsupportive manager as the reason for not disclosing their menopausal symptons.
Without an open dialogue with senior leadership, companies are at risk of losing experienced talent with a wealth of skills and compromising their commitment to an inclusive and diverse workforce. Help your managers understand and communicate menopause issues appropriately and respectfully.
In this 60 minute bespoke workshop aimed at managers, you will learn:
- How to have sensitive conversations about the menopause
- The range of symptoms experienced
- Employers policy on menopause
- Support and adjustments available within the organisation
- Changes that can be made within the workers rights
- Signposting other than their manager (HR, trade union, EAP, wellbeing champion)
- Employment law relating to the menopause
How it works:
- Capacity: Up to 15 managers (We keep this to a smaller group to encourage plenty of participation and dialogue).
- Length: 60 minutes (Longer sessions are available)
- Logistics: This workshop is available for delivery as a virtual webinar or in-house workshop
