More and more women are working through their 50s and into their 60s, and employers are facing a new challenge on how to support employees experiencing menopause whilst at work.
Some employers have been slow to respond to proactively managing an age-diverse workforce - in particular women of menopausal age - who may need specific considerations.
Short-term investment can prevent long-term issues. Employers do not yet have clear processes to support women coping with menopausal symptoms, and therefore, there have been several menopause-related tribunals that have been found in favour of the employee.
This session will discuss the challenges for menopausal women in the workplace and recommendations for employers to best support these team members to make suitable adjustments to the physical and psychosocial work environment, provision of information and support, and training for line managers.
