Menopause and the workplace
Around one in eight of the British workforce are women over 50.  Most women over 50 will have, or have had, perimenopausal or menopausal symptoms that affect their work.1    

As more women remain in the workforce during and beyond menopause, it is a fundamental issue for workplace inclusion and productivity. Employers are now understanding the importance of supporting employees during the menopause in order to retain valuable knowledge, skills and experience within a key workplace demographic.

BITC is working with businesses to support their staff experiencing menopause and encourage awareness among all employees.
