Event description

Description

The event aims to be a foundation for those who have just started to understand the wellbeing issues encountered and also an investment in colleagues who have already taken steps to support officers and staff who are menopausal.

The changing age of our workforce in the UK means that between 75-80% of menopausal age women are in work. But research tells us that the majority of women are unwilling to discuss menopause related health problems with their line managers or ask for the support or adjustments that they need.

There are compelling reasons for us to change the way we talk about and support menopause in our Forces. The benefits include providing reduced absence, reduction in recruitment and temporary cover costs, increased motivation and productivity, and retaining talent.

This supports the Force’s values, commitment to equality and diversity and reputation, both as an employer and serving the public.

The consequences of getting it wrong, are also very significant with the risks and costs of Tribunals, which can be on age, sex or disability discrimination.

We already have many shining examples across our Forces supporting menopause in the workplace and we are now bringing all our Forces together to understand all about it, how it may affect women at work and how to provide the right support by introducing menopause policies, practices and awareness.

We want everyone to be able to talk about menopause openly and without embarrassment, for women to feel supported, confidently able to discuss it and ask for the support they may need.

We want leaders to know more about menopause, feel confident to develop and implement policies and practices, talk to their teams about it, and support women struggling with menopausal symptoms.

Menopause is not something that’s just a women’s issue, men need to know about it too.
