This half day online programme will offer HR professionals, line managers and employee relations officers the tools required to support their employees, both from a legal and practical application standpoint, as they tackle the challenges posed by the experience of menopause in the workplace.
Participants will gain a greater understanding of how to implement best practice policies and create a more inclusive workplace. This training will also look at the business case for these best practice policies in driving progression, boosting performance and retaining a skilled workforce, whilst encouraging women to stay within the sector.
Our first talk will cover the topic of ‘Menopause and it’s Impact at Work’ and will look at the following issues:
- Broad introduction to peri-menopause/menopause
- How menopause/peri-menopause affects women at work
- How productivity, performance and retention can be affected
- How to support women in the workplace…where to begin
Our second talk of the morning will cover the legal and practical standpoint for supporting employees through the challenges posed by the experience of menopause. Our legal barrister will cover menopause policies and whether they are a legal requirement for all employers to have in place. Discussion points will include the below
- Legal considerations and best practice for encouraging a menopause friendly work environment
- Specific areas of liability; sex, age and/or disability discrimination
- Duty of care, health and safety and managing symptoms of menopause
See what one of our attendees had to say:
“PAI’s interactive, informative and well-facilitated Menopause in the Workplace workshop gives a very helpful framework for HR professionals and others working on policy and supports. I found it very practical, with a good balance of lived experience and legislative context. It was encouraging to meet peers and to see how this conversation is being opened up and progressed in public sector workplaces”. –Katy Lumsden, National Library of Ireland.
