Menopause Service

Did you know...

  • 8 in 10 women of menopausal age are in work and this age group is the fastest growing workplace demographic in the UK
  • 3 in 4 individuals experience menopause symptoms
  • 1 in 4 of these experience severe symptoms
  • 1 in 4 considers leaving work due to their menopausal symptoms
  • 1 in 10 actually have left their employment due to their menopausal challenges
  • Over half do not feel comfortable discussing their menopause symptoms with their manager which hinders their ability to seek support

As a HR Consultant, I am accredited and licensed to deliver menopause awareness sessions through the Henpicked ‘Menopause Workplace Trainer Network’. Henpicked are the leading provider of menopause education and awareness in the workplace in the UK.

Research shows that tribunal claims citing menopause increased by 40% from 2021 to 2022! Without providing education to empower managers and colleagues with menopause awareness and how to help and support this, the likelihood of such claims is likely to continue to rise.
