Often a few simple changes to the working environment can make a world of difference – even just talking about the menopause openly can reduce the impact of some symptoms and enable people to continue performing well in their roles. Line managers play a vital role in supporting colleagues with menopausal symptoms and so the CIPD and Bupa have created a guide for line managers so that they can:

  • understand and reduce the barriers that could potentially prevent a colleague going through the menopause transition from performing and/or developing to their full potential 
  • identify appropriate workplace changes or adjustments to support team members and help them thrive at work 
  • foster an inclusive working environment in which everyone is treated fairly. 
The menopause at work: a guide for line managers offers practical advice on what a manager needs to know about the menopause to effectively support their team.
