Menopause at Work Essential Insights
Gain an understanding of the potential impact of menopause on individuals at work and how organisations can create supportive policies and environments.
Free for CIPD members and Core Learning Subscribers.
The ability to empathise and consider the wellbeing of others is key to valuing people at work. When individuals are given a meaningful voice, they can speak up, feel safe, included and able to thrive. Therefore, creating and maintaining a positive working relationship between an organisation and its people involves using employee voice insights to instigate change and create a culture of trust.
The effect of the menopause transition impacts many people’s health and wellbeing in the workplace. This course sensitively broaches what is often a taboo topic, explaining the physical and psychological symptoms associated with menopause and clarifying common misconceptions. It will support individuals and organisations to feel equipped to discuss menopause in the context of work and build an open and inclusive culture.
By exploring how menopause affects people differently in the workplace, learners will be able to contribute to developing people policies that enable everyone to be their best at work.
