Women aged between 50 and 64 represent a significant (and growing) sector of the workforce. This means that currently 4.4 million women in the workplace are perimenopausal, menopausal or post-menopausal.*
Disruption to hormone levels bring their own issues as women cope with symptoms that can impact on their health, wellbeing and performance at work. As this life stage coincides with other responsibilities such as caring for children, grandchildren and/or ageing parents, it makes it especially important that women receive the right support at work.
“The level of support that women receive at this stage of their working life can be pivotal in facilitating their continued economic participation, as well as the ability of employers to attract and retain experienced and valuable skills and talent.” *

Employees improve their knowledge and understanding of menopause so they can take control of their health and wellbeing.
Specialist MenoLeaders share evidence-based information in a friendly, informal setting which encourages discussion and peer support.
Weekly sessions also include easy-to-do exercises that can be done at home or at the desk to improve fitness and health.
Employees feel more confident and comfortable discussing menopause with their managers and peers.
It’s a cost-effective way to support employees and potentially reduce menopause-related absence.
This initiative supports employees who may consider leaving their job due to menopausal symptoms, to stay at work by promoting a supportive and inclusive culture in the workplace
MenoHealth supports companies and organisations by informing, supporting and offering practical help for employees through a programme of online workshops and meetups facilitated by experienced MenoLeaders.
We will arrange an introductory session to get to know you and your team so we can adapt to suit your needs.
We recognise that time is always in short supply so each MenoHealth workshop is 30 minutes long making it easy for colleagues to access during lunch or breaktime.
At every touch point we listen, facilitate open discussion and share practical information. This ensures that everyone feels supported and empowered to take control of their menopause symptoms. We signpost on to trustworthy organisations and medical professionals where individual advice is needed.
And to make a tangible impact on health and wellbeing, we also guide everyone through some easy exercises that can be done at home or at a desk without the need to change into sports gear or get hot and sweaty.
This wordmap combines words from the feedback of people who have genuinely benefited from MenoHealth sessions.
The MenoHealth sessions have been incredibly successful and hugely popular with hundreds of people attending each week. In fact we’ve run three full programmes as feedback showed how vitally important the weekly sessions have been for staff health, wellbeing and morale.
“Huge thanks to you all for making life changing decisions that much easier and improving my well-being in so many ways.”
