Nicola Green’s Menopause Support in the Workplace
Nicola Green Consultancy provides practical advice and support in the workplace addressing the menopause.
The menopause is a natural stage of life experienced by most women between the ages of 45-55, yet it remains a taboo subject in many organisations.
Nicola aims to eradicate this taboo subject from the workplace and remove the stigma around the age of a menopausal woman.
Nicola was diagnosed with premature menopause at the age of 35.
Many organisations are not aware of the financial implications they are currently suffering because the menopause is not talked about openly in the workplace.
Women suffer in silence as they do not feel able to talk to their manager about how their menopausal symptoms are affecting them at work.
How many employees do you know who have phoned in sick due to a menopause related symptom or left their place of work due to the menopause? The answer is usually “none” but Nicola has met many.
By providing employees with support and understanding of the menopause in the workplace; organisations can reduce the risk of potential legal action, employee turnover and sick pay but also increase productivity, loyalty and allow their employees to achieve to their full potential.
