Women over the age of 50 are the fastest growing segment of the workforce, and most will go through the menopause transition during their working lives. For every 10 women experiencing menopausal symptoms, six say it has a negative impact on their work. Yet it remains a taboo topic in many workplaces. Women will continue to suffer in silence unless we break the stigma and start talking openly about the menopause at work.
In this episode, Deborah Garlick, from Henpicked: Menopause in the Workplace and the CIPD’s Senior Employment Relations Adviser, Rachel Suff share their ideas and insights. We also hear from Janet Trowse at Network Rail who has first-hand experience of working within an organisation that does all it can to support menopausal women in the workplace.
Claire McCartney and Rachel Suff provide an overview of the CIPD’s continuing work on the menopause and discuss why it is important to keep this issue in the public eye
