Recognising & Supporting Menopause in the Workplace Conference

Danubius Hotel Regents Park , 18 Lodge Road, St. John's Wood, London NW8 7JT

With over 3.5 women in the UK workforce who are over 50, this is a taboo that has been ignored for too long.

Registration fee: £395 plus VAT per delegate

Symptoms can be debilitating and 50% of those women have reported difficulties on their performance due to the onset of menopause.

Tackling the issue positions your organisation as an employer of choice; many women returning to the workplace and the effect of Brexit means this is a demographic that must be taken seriously.

The issue often affects women at the peak of their career.

Designing and implementing a practical and workable support policy will also minimise the risk of costly disciplinary cases.

Part of a long-established BFI portfolio of workplace occupational health training.
