If You Work In HR, DE&I, Head of Culture, or Employee Relations, You Need Menopause Awareness Training In Your Workplace
Did You Know...
1 in 5 women pass on accepting a promotion because of the impact menopause has on their work?
Or that minor things like access to temperature control and ventilation help to make menopause more manageable in the workplace?
What about the menopause-related safety risks and other workplace factors that many employers are not aware are your company's responsibility?
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.
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.
