Over 600 employers have signed the Menopause Workplace Pledge – a campaign led by Wellbeing of Women.
In signing the pledge, employers are recognising that menopause can be an issue in the workplace for which employees need support. Employers are pledging to ensure open, positive and respectful discussions about the menopause and to take active steps to support employees.
Examples of employers who have pledged include:
- Royal Mail;
- The BBC;
- National Grid;
- M&S Bank;
- Co-op; and
Following their pledge, Royal Mail have started an internal campaign to normalise conversations about menopause, and Tesco plans to incorporate breathable fabric into its uniform to help with hot flushes.
