The One Woman Health Menopause Awareness packages are helping organisations understand how to better support the diverse needs of the workforce.
Designed and delivered by One Woman Health founder Dr. Nina Wilson, presentations provide the knowledge base for all staff with an emphasis on examples of practical steps people can take at home or at work to help themselves, colleagues or loved ones.
Supporting the Menopause in the workplace can help ensure professional women continue to work productively during a critical time in their working lives. International Women’s Day on 8th March and World Menopause Day on the 18th October every year are fantastic opportunities for themed activities and educational events designed to raise awareness and embed a culture that supports equality and diversity.
“Women have told us that the right support makes all the difference and the evidence backs this up. Not having a menopause strategy is a blindspot for a company looking to recruit and retain top talent.
Neglecting to raise workforce awareness around how to support women in menopause means individuals can be reluctant to ask for help, causing a decline in physical and mental well-being and at putting them at risk of encountering age and gender equality-related biases. ” Dr Nina Wilson – OWH Founder
Menopause affects 50% of the population for around one third to one half of their working life. This is the half associated with the greatest seniority, where absence can have a significant impact on business and recruitment costs are a high. The experience of Menopause is widely variable with symptoms that can directly impact productivity, job satisfaction, self-esteem and concentration. For many, the challenge can be overwhelming.
Women experiencing menopause are the fastest growing demographic in the workforce with the average age of natural menopause at 51, lost productivity can be damaging to an individual’s self-worth and job satisfaction and may increase absenteeism.
The right support at the right time can literally transform the experience of menopause and prevent problems from escalating. One Woman Health is committed to helping companies raise awareness among staff and empowering employees to help themselves and others, to put an end to the ‘menopause brain drain’.
