Event description

Description

Miss Menopause has been created to fill the void of educational services needed by working women as they reach the menopause.

In 2019 it’s estimated only 3% of companies across the UK are educating their workforce about the symptoms the menopause may bring.

So why does it matter?

Since 1971 there has been an ongoing decline in men working full time while the opposite is true of women. It’s estimated that in 15 years time the amount of full time working women will equal that of men. The changes to pensionable age brought about in 2010 also mean more women are working for longer than ever before. This trend is set to continue.

Who is affected?

100% of all women will go through the menopause with the average age being 51, however symptoms may begin many years before. Mental health issues can often arise due to menopause as well as a host of other symptoms.

How might this affect me?

Millions of days are being lost to presenteeism, which is driving down productivity. So you won’t find data on this problem as it’s currently hidden. As our workforce ages this is set to increase.

In the last 12 months there has been the first tribunal case where menopause was thought to be one of the main factors. This cost the company many thousands of pounds as they lost the case.

What is the answer?

You are invited to attend an interactive session to learn and understand what the menopause is all about, specifically aimed at HR professionals.

Learn about what the menopause is and how this might affect your people. Get the opportunity to think about solutions and what you can do to ensure high levels of support as your people transition though menopause.
