Debra Clark, head of specialist consulting at Towergate Health & Protection, is calling for menopause education in the workplace to be for everyone, not just people going through menopause. She said:

“There is a great deal of misunderstanding surrounding the symptoms and impact of menopause.

“Everyone will be impacted by the menopause at some point in their working lives, either going through it, or knowing someone going through it. So it’s vital that education and awareness isn’t only directed at people going through menopause, it must also be inclusive of all genders and all ages. Increased understanding is the first step in creating a culture that’s supportive. 

“Employers are in a unique position to be able to offer information and support on menopause and its impact. The positive effects of greater education will help the individuals involved, their families, colleagues, as well as the business itself.

“Workplace support won’t be as effective if it isn’t offered widely enough.”

Education is arguably even more important for employees that work overseas, where different cultures also need to be taken into account.
