Menopause is more than just a women's health issue; it's a workplace imperative that directly and indirectly impacts businesses globally.



Menopause awareness in the workplace training is a transformative initiative that provides substantial benefits for both employers and employees. By fostering a supportive and informed environment, employers not only demonstrate a commitment to gender equality, occupational health and safety, diversity, and their legal and ethical obligations. They also create a more inclusive, empathetic, and cohesive working environment where all employees can thrive.

In today's rapidly evolving workplace, it's essential to understand and address the unique challenges menopausal employees face. The key to creating an inclusive, empathetic, and supportive environment is distinguishing between Menopause Awareness Training and Menopause Symptom Support. 

Menopause Awareness Training is all about educating your workforce on what menopause is, what it entails, and its social and economic impact. This is how you create a working environment that helps to break stigmas, promote inclusivity, improve communication, and increase empathy and understanding. It also demonstrates how to overcome six of the top challenges that HR, Heads of People, and DEI professionals experience daily.

Menopause Symptom Support, on the other hand, involves providing assistance to employees experiencing menopausal symptoms.

While Menopause Symptom Support is crucial, it becomes even more effective when preceded by Menopause Awareness Training.

"I have had the pleasure of partnering with Tafiq Akhir for six years. I am constantly blown away by his depth and breadth of knowledge about health, nutrition, hormonal balance, metabolism, and fitness. We always receive exceptional feedback from the participants of his wellness presentations, telling us what a great presenter he is and how beneficial the information is that he shares. Tafiq is professional, reliable, and an absolute pleasure to work with! I am a huge fan of everything he does and highly recommend him as a speaker, coach, and trainer."
Nicole Mixdorf, Chief Wellness Officer, Balance by Nature

Why Menopause Awareness Training & Certification?

More than half of the working population will encounter menopausal symptoms during their lifetime. If we include the over 40% of men over 45 who experience male menopause that makes up more than half of the working population. However, this topic has seldom been openly discussed until recently. Various factors, including embarrassment, privacy concerns, inadequate workplace practices, and cultural differences, have contributed to this silence. Regardless of the reasons, many employees suffer from menopause symptoms and would benefit from sensitive listening and effective support in the workplace.

As you can see, menopause is much more than a woman's health issue. It's a woman's life issue and will impact every aspect of her life: mentally, physically, and emotionally. Therefore, it impacts her health, relationships, home, and work. Menopause is also a business imperative when you look at the social and economic impact it has globally.

Menopause awareness training and certification are designed to raise awareness for all members of your staff, enabling you to contribute to creating a more inclusive, supportive, and teambuilding workplace. 

It will highlight the impact of menopause and emphasize the significance of awareness and empathy. Additionally, it will challenge the stigma associated with menopause and debunk the myths and misconceptions surrounding this transformative phase in people's lives.

"Tafiq's approach and professionalism is top notch. He has definitely been one of the most comprehensive health and wellness coaches in LA! If you are looking for an A + presentation and nutrition and wellness guidance, I highly recommend him. I approve this comment."

In it, Tafiq gave a clear explanation of various causes for our menopause symptoms in a well-laid-out, easy-to-understand explanation.

Further, as a fellow health coach, I can confidently write that Tafiq knows his stuff and can assist women with menopause issues."

"I attended Tafiq's webinar and thoroughly enjoyed it! Tafiq was engaging and knowledgeable - incorporating his training as a Menopause Champion with his vast knowledge of nutrition, health, and fitness. He focused on one of the most important aspects - raising awareness of menopause and educating those in the workplace so women in this life stage can get the support they need from those they work with, and companies can improve culture and retention.
