About this course

The menopause is as natural as a sunrise. However, it’s not as pleasant. It often has a negative impact on the emotional and physical health of anyone who’s experiencing it, which is why forward-thinking organisations are asking, learning, and paying attention - to make sure they take action to support their employees.

Thankfully, there’s a lot that both employers and employees can do to support those experiencing menopause, which includes menopause in the workplace training. What’s more, our menopause training course is delivered online for your convenience and can be completed on any device, at any time.

What are the benefits of menopause training for employees? 

Menopause training can offer lots of valuable information for your employees, helping them to gain a wider understanding of a subject that is widely considered to be taboo. These include: 

  • Understanding the biological and physiological elements of menopause. 
  • Allows employees to better support female colleagues going through menopause.
  • How to recognise menopausal symptoms in themselves and others.
  • Deeper knowledge of treatment options to aid health and wellbeing. 
  • Helps to foster an empathetic culture that addresses stigmatised attitudes toward menopause.

If your company hasn't even started writing a policy and awareness is low, this is a great course to raise awareness. Provide some simple information and references to help and support out there. I think every company should have individuals in place to support those that may be experiencing symptoms, too scared to share this with their employer, as there are some changes that could be made that would make life more comfortable during a difficult time.

Why is this training important?

Compliance

It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work.

Employers have a legal duty to look after employees experiencing the menopause. The menopause isn’t specifically mentioned in the Equality Act - but due to the sensitive nature of the subject, there is a connection connected to the protected characteristics of age, gender reassignment, and sex. This also includes disability, if symptoms have had a substantial impact on an employee's health for 12 months or more. As menopause symptoms can last up to months or even years, it is important to make all your staff aware of this online menopause training course.

And, as it can directly impact someone’s mental and physical health, it’s also part of your employer’s Duty of Care within the Health and Safety at Work Act and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations.

Employers also have an ethical responsibility to educate themselves and other colleagues too. The aim of any organisation should be to ensure that any employees experiencing the menopause (and the peri-menopause) can access the following:

  • Know where and how to access support.
  • Feel confident asking their line manager for support, guidance and adjustments.
  • Feel comfortable discussing their symptoms - if they choose to do so.
  • Know that information they share will be handled in the strictest confidence.
  • Know that their job security and promotion opportunities will not be negatively affected.

Frequently asked questions

Investing in menopause training as an employer brings lots of benefits for your business as a whole. Employees will feel included and on the same page, helping to harness increased productivity and boost employee satisfaction.
Being aware of the challenges that the menopause can incur is essential for better understanding and empathy towards your employees. It benefits managers and employers to take the training course, so you can recognise and address any of the difficulties your employees may face. By doing so, you’ll be equipped to make any necessary adjustments to workloads and schedules, helping affected employees feel considered and boosting productivity.
The stigma around menopause is often unfair and misunderstood, but our training course includes detailed analysis and information about the stigma and attitudes that surround menopause. By knowing the type of measures you need to consider and adjustments to make, you’ll be able to help make any affected employees feel comfortable.
Through raised awareness, the training can help you to recognise signs of any menopause-related anxieties or stress, meaning you can intervene at an early stage. Increased support makes employees feel valued and wanted, and flexible work arrangements or programs that assist employees can help minimise absenteeism.
You may not have considered the wide-ranging options available to your employees beforehand, but through raised awareness during the training, you can implement further support for employees. This may include healthcare access, counselling services, additional information on treatments, or setting up a group support session for women affected by menopause.
