Menopause in the Workplace

Our mission is to empower women to optimise their health and vitality during their menopausal years, so that they can continue to live the life they love. 

 Our values are Education, Empathy and Empowerment.

With so many women working outside the home nowadays, and so many women returning to work longer, it is important to manage menopause in the workplace.

Still a taboo subject, women themselves are not well educated about menopause and employers even less so.

With focus on health and wellness at work, for all the obvious reasons, such as work satisfaction, retention, increased productivity and reduced absenteeism, it is important for both employees and employers to ensure optimum health at work. Menopause and its management is part of a woman’s health.

Women who are peri-menopausal, going through early or premature menopause, or surgical menopause or who are post-menopausal, will suffer physical, emotional and mental symptoms at work, including; anxiety, panic attacks, irritability, sudden burst of angers, low mood, tears, inability to get the right words out, forgetfulness, hot flushes, lack of confidence, poor concentration, poor motivation, insomnia resulting in fatigue and tiredness the next day , the list of menopause symptoms goes on. How should women handle this? How should their colleagues handle this, other than sniggers and whispers? How should management handle this?

So many questions, so few answers.

The Menopause Hub can help. Our goal is to educate women and men (as men have wives, sisters, mothers, friends etc., going through menopause) about the wide range of symptoms being experienced by women and how to manage that in the workplace.

Our specialist support team includes doctors, psychologists, counsellors, physiotherapists and acupuncturists. 

We offer bespoke solutions to organisations and teams on menopause education and management. We will design a programme suited to your workplace needs, audience composition, time allocations etc.,that can help you manage menopause in your workplace. Programmes can include:; one-off workshops, a series of training classes, in workplace consultations with our doctors and much more. The options are unlimited.
