Did you realise that as many as 1 in 4 women aged 40 or older are seriously considering leaving their roles or reducing hours due to symptoms related to perimenopause and menopause?
The 48 associated symptoms (that's right, 48) can have a direct impact on confidence and self esteem and can weigh heavily on physical, emotional and mental health and energy.
Today is World Menopause Day.
Here at Diaverum we're big believers that Menopause isn't a 'women's issue' but a 'workplace issue'. As such, we're proud to have signed the 'Menopause Workplace Pledge' through Wellbeing of Women and are proud to be one of the founding partners of GenM
What does that mean?
✅ It means we're committed to improving the experience of menopausal and perimenopausal women who work with us.
✅ It means we're committed to removing the taboo associated with menopause by educating and equipping everyone in our teams with tools
and training to support meaningful conversations.
✅ It means we're committed to improving and protecting the physical and mental well-being, and overall happiness of our teams by giving important programmes like this the right amount of airtime at all levels.
Raising awareness within our organisation
Our partnership with GenM provides the opportunity to tap into resources and expertise to support colleagues who are experiencing symptoms and working with those who are.
Our Managing Director, Lisa Jordan, HR Director Rob Chandler and Chief Business Officer at Diaverum Group chat with GenM about the importance of removing the taboo related to Menopause and equipping everyone to talk openly about an important workplace issue.
There are a number of exciting plans in store, including the introduction
of a market-leading healthcare app later this year, offering all our team members access to clinical experts, with no waiting times - all from a mobile phone.
