World Menopause Day: Turning talk into action

About this event

Employers are now well aware of the impact menopause symptoms have on their employees.

Hot flushes, night sweats and brain fog can negatively impact productivity, engagement, and an organisation’s bottom line. They can even force employees out of work altogether, and the government has faced repeated calls to make menopause a protected characteristic in UK legislation.

This World Menopause Day, it’s time for HR to take this awareness and translate it into action. Join this Personnel Today webinar, in association with Peppy, to hear from our expert panel who will discuss the practical steps you can take to support your employees experiencing menopause.

Hear from employers who are leading the way about what has and hasn't worked, as well as understand more about the menopause with a clinical overview from Peppy's Director of Menopause, Kathy Abernethy.

The event will include:

  • best practice from employers
  • key takeaways to implement when looking at embedding your menopause workplace initiatives
  • a focus on this year's World Menopause Day theme, cognition and mood

This free to attend webinar will take place on Tuesday 4 October at 2:00pm. It will feature a panel discussion, followed by an audience Q&A.
