Human Resources - Menopause in the Workplace. And it's only women, right?

Venue: Broomfield Hall
Hours: 4.00
Cost (£): 350.00

Course Overview

As women are working for longer, menopause can get in the way of their work and careers at a time when organisations need to retain their talent and have everyone performing at their best. It is important to remember that men can experience age-related changes in hormone levels too – in what is known as the andropause.
At a time when employment tribunals have been won on the basis of menopausal symptoms, there is a clear onus of responsibility on organisations to look after employees’ wellbeing and foster a culture of inclusivity. By attending this course, you will understand more about what menopause is, how to recognise the symptoms and how you can support people experiencing those symptoms.
