It is my understanding that 'World Menopause Day' takes place every year, but I have to admit I was not aware of it, so I thought I would ensure I blogged about it so that I was positively spreading the word!
Additionally, ACAS have published new guidance to assist employers and managers support staff who are affected by menopause symptoms at work.
Key points of the ACAS guidance are:-
1) Make changes if possible to hours of work;
2) Considering implementing a Menopause policy; and
3) Provide training for staff to rise awareness, and education them on how to deal with issues or queries raised by employees in this area.
Access to the guidance can be found at https://www.acas.org.uk/index.aspx?articleid=6752
