Menopause and the Modern Workplace: A Vital Dialogue for Business Growth
Understanding the Urgency of Menopause Training
Menopause is a natural stage, but its impact is far from uniform. While some may navigate it with ease, others endure a tumultuous transition, facing a spectrum of physical and psychological challenges. The repercussions extend beyond individuals, affecting their families, friends, and colleagues.
My mission is to foster open dialogue, awareness, and comprehensive support to alleviate the difficulties associated with menopause in the work environment.
My approach is to engage with your team and empower them to embrace positive change. With flexible solutions tailored to fit your company's unique culture, I aim to facilitate a menopause-friendly workplace. As a certified Henpicked Menopause Workplace Trainer, I aim to normalise menopause conversations, ensuring it's a topic of inclusivity, not discomfort.
I aspire to echo the strides made by Henpicked's Menopause in the Workplace initiatives with larger entities, extending these benefits to enterprises of all sizes. By providing tried, tested, and trusted CPD-registered training materials, I'll work with your organisation's colleagues and leaders to help change hearts and minds around menopause.
Professional Development and Retention
Women in mid and older life are returning to or staying in work longer.
Women aged 50-64 have been the fastest-growing demographic in the workplace for decades across the whole global north. It's estimated that there are at least 5.87 million women of menopausal or premenopausal age currently working in the UK. The recent Fawcett report research data states that 25% of women surveyed said they'd considered quitting work, and 10% have left work because of menopause.
76% of hiring managers within organisations admit that their biggest challenge is attracting and retaining the right candidates for roles.
Expertise in Holistic Well-being
Henpicked's ambition of supporting menopause will help attract and retain talent and help people thrive in their careers. Women who feel supported are happier, more committed, and more satisfied. This is hard to measure tangibly but is evidenced in a lot of data. The legal reason should not be the only reason – but it is worth noting that it is now critical for employers to ensure that they follow best practices in how they support menopausal women in the workplace.
As a nutritional therapist, health coach, and pharmacist, I offer specialised talks that delve into the nuances of menopause, providing actionable diet and lifestyle recommendations to manage its symptoms effectively. Your organisation's unique needs are paramount. I invite you to engage with me to craft a program that resonates with your ethos and supports your team.

A Session for Managers - Facilitating Menopause Awareness
This session is an extension of the foundational menopause training, tailored specifically for management. It aims to equip leaders with the skills to engage in sensitive dialogue, offering guidance on fostering open conversations about menopause. Line managers do not need to become experts in menopause.
However, they may need help understanding some of the issues and to be provided with support in learning how to have what used to be viewed as difficult or awkward conversations. We highlight the critical impact that understanding and support can have on team morale and productivity. Managers will gain essential knowledge not only to aid their staff but also to reinforce the values of a caring and inclusive workplace, ultimately contributing to the company's success.

The core of these talks is to empower you with strategies that not only ease the menopausal transition but also lay the groundwork for sustained post-menopausal health. While not CPD accredited, this premier offering is rich with practical advice, focusing primarily on nutritional and lifestyle adjustments and their beneficial roles in your overall well-being
