Why the menopause is a workplace issue

Did you know:

  • Menopausal women are the fastest growing demographic in the workforce.
  • The average age for a woman to go through menopause is 51. It can be earlier than this, naturally or due to surgery, or illness. And symptoms may start years before menopause, during the perimenopause phase.
  • According to the Faculty of Occupational Medicine nearly eight out of ten of menopausal women are in work.
  • Three out of four women experience symptoms, one in four could experience serious symptoms.
  • One in three of the workforce will soon be over 50, and retirement ages are now 68.
