Miss Menopause

Miss Menopause has been created to fill the void of educational services needed by working women as they reach the menopause.

It’s estimated less than 5% of companies across the UK are educating their workforce about the symptoms that menopause may bring.

So why does it matter?

Since 1971 there has been an ongoing decline in men working full time while the opposite is true of women. The changes to pensionable age brought about in 2010 also mean more women are working for longer than ever before. This trend is set to continue. There are now millions of women having to work through menopause.

Who is affected?

100% of all women will go through the menopause with the average age being 51, however symptoms may begin many years before. Mental health issues can often arise due to menopause as well as a host of other symptoms.

How might this affect me?

Millions of days are being lost to presenteeism, which is driving down productivity. So you won’t find data on this problem as it’s currently hidden. As our workforce ages this is set to increase. Many more women are leaving their positions causing a talent drain, which is a huge cost to any organisation. Ignorance can no longer be an excuse.
