Foster open communication
Provide practical support
If you’re a manager that strives for high productivity and results, it can be difficult to deal with the changes to work performance that menopause can cause. Be understanding and flexible, allowing for adjustments when necessary, while maintaining open communication about expectations and deadlines. Schedule regular check-ins to provide support and show your commitment to their success. As long as everyone on the team is open about their workloads and challenges, you can pull together to enjoy success.
By prioritising the wellbeing of menopausal employees, managers can foster a positive and inclusive workplace culture that benefits everyone on the team. Menopause support begins at the top level - when managers pledge to support menopausal women, everyone on the team can thrive.
