Claire Bond

Menopause in the workplace accredited trainer, HR Director with over 20 years experience, and business owner

It is not always easy for managers or company owners to know the extent to which the menopause is affecting staff, because people often don’t feel comfortable talking about it. Claire will work alongside your colleagues, managers and senior leadership team to help provide practical support for your organisation.

There have been many articles and studies highlighting the need for increased menopause awareness and support in the workplace with statistics published (Standard Chartered Menopause in the Workplace Impact report 2021 & Fawcett Society Report 2022) that include:

- c.80% people going through menopause are in work
- 10% have left work due to their symptoms
- 5% have gone part-time
• 8% have not applied for promotion
• 3% have retired
• 13% are considering retiring
• 46% did not disclose because they were worried it would be perceived negatively
• 41% were worried their abilities would be questioned.

In the current economic climate, a drive for companies to be truly inclusive for all employees can be extremely challenging. With a diverse workforce, supporting varied areas of the business, understanding the true impact of menopause on colleagues is important.

Whilst there is ever growing guidance material for menopause, our work tells us that practical and engaging menopause awareness training can be more successful in improving understanding of the menopause, the impacts experienced, opening up the conversations, identifying successful support mechanisms and removing the stigma so often associated with menopause.

Our CPD accredited training for colleagues, managers and senior leaders can really make a difference and is key in supporting the move to becoming a menopause friendly workspace.

Claire has a clear vision to make all employers menopause friendly and will achieve this this by delivering non-biased, tried, tested and trusted training and awareness content.

And for those employers who want to put equity, diversity, inclusion and colleagues’ wellbeing centre stage Menopause Friendly Accreditation demonstrates your dedication to making your organisation a great place to work.

Following independent assessment, you’ll receive accreditation as an ‘Independently Accredited Menopause Friendly Employer’.
