How your organisation could be doing more this World Menopause Day

Menopause doesn’t just last a day or a month, it can last up to 15 years. As part of a collective of brands making the menopause better for all, we’re proud to support GenM to #OwnYourMenopause today and in the future. This is a powerful time of change and we’re encouraging you to welcome the menopause and own it.

How can your organisation help own it?

Worryingly, 1 in 4 people consider leaving their jobs because of the menopause, and 1 in 10 actually do leave their job. For organisations who value their employees, these are concerning statistics, and it’s time to act now to provide better menopause support.

Menopause support is essential for a happy and healthy female workforce. But its impact on your business is hugely valuable too. With a comprehensive menopause support strategy, you can help nurture a diverse workforce, bring more female representation into senior leadership positions, and help retain midlife female colleagues.

If you’re keen to provide better support within your business for people experiencing the menopause, the first key step is to start the conversation. Raising awareness and normalising the conversation is key to improving the menopause experience. The more informed we are, the more impactful the changes we can make as brands and organisations.

World Menopause Day is an opportunity for all brands, organisations, and employers to appeal to an underserved audience and drive must-needed change that will help everyone affected to feel understood, and represented. Our aim as companies should be to make employees affected by the menopause feel better supported and more visible at this pivotal time.
