Working Environment

Small changes make a massive difference to menopause symptoms. These environmental adjustments are often overlooked. We can visit your offices, review your current layout and facilities. Structure and offer solutions that will aid to a better working day for those involved.

Menopause Training for Employees, Line Managers, HR and Occupational Health

All businesses are built on connections and working relationships. Educating all members of the company can mean a better understanding and better working relationships. Quite often, listening to other peoples experiences can make a world of difference to our attitude to one another. For a company to progress and develop, there needs to be mutual respect between departments. For a business to be profitable and grow, employees should be willing to help one another through times that they may find challenging.

Menopause Wellness Campaign

Nothing gets people talking more than a campaign. And one that demonstrates productive action is beneficial not only to a company’s morale but also to building interpersonal relationships. It opens the door to better communication and a far more relaxed and productive working day.

We can work with you by designing a bespoke day event, weekend away, or a presentation with interactive questions and answers.

Menopause Education

With the rise of remote working, it is now possible to give presentations online. These presentations can be linked from anywhere. No one can feel excluded as individuals can either join the link at their desk or in their own homes, open conversations become more prevalent. 

Menopause education is not just for management, but it is also for every woman regardless of age. Many women have no knowledge of what to expect, if their symptoms are normal or where they can go for help and guidance. So our presentations make all of this simple and easy to understand so that women can make better and more informed choice.

Male only workshops and presentations. 

All too often, men are not included in conversations surrounding menopause. Yet 100 per cent of men will meet a woman who is menopausal at one point or another during their lives.

Quite often, men are afraid to speak out and express their thought through fear of being judged.

We offer specific training and education surrounding language barriers, gender respect and open discussions to ensure balanced working relationships.

One to One Mentoring

As Positive Menopause was incorporated initially as a community initiative, we now have abundant experience working alongside women struggling with menopause symptoms.

Therefore, we offer one-on-one mentoring or in small groups where women are free to be open. We can also help you as a company form an internal support group. 

Menopause Policies

Ensuring that there are policies in place to protect women in menopause is vital to any company. However, all too often, this necessity is put to one side. We will therefore review your current policies are work alongside you to incorporate additional structure.

Virtual Downloads

Sometimes it isn’t always possible to organise an event or to have all of your staff log on to be part of a virtual meeting. However, it is always possible for your employees to gain knowledge and information at their convenience. We can give them this option, with the added reassurance that we will follow up on any queries or questions that they may have after viewing.
