BMR Health and Wellbeing
BMR Health and Wellbeing announced a partnership with Henpicked – Menopause in the Workplace (MIW), an organisation that support businesses to implement education to support menopausal women and help leaders have great conversations.
So why do we need to know more about the menopause?
Well, it effects 50 per cent of the population. Each woman will have a unique experience that will last for a different amount of time. It can start as early as twenty and the symptoms can vary. One in four women consider leaving work due to the menopause. Hence, education is key for both the employee and the employer.
First let us clarify the stages of menopause;
Symptoms during perimenopause
Now this is the important bit as there are loads of myths, and many women go undiagnosed or diagnosed with depression.
There are many more symptoms that women can experience and the most important thing is to seek advice from your GP if you are struggling.
This blog is just a taster of the training and education BMR that are available, which will add more to your organisation’s wellbeing strategy to help all employees feel supported at all their life stages.
The ladies of BMR are all a certain age. How do we feel?
We are all busy mums who have always been active, exercised regularly and ate well. Suddenly, you sense a change, a brain fog, where even if you write your To Do List you may forget to do the things on it.
Your body does not feel like your own anymore and you start to worry that you are losing the plot.
However, with education we have gained from Henpicked- Menopause in the Workplace, we now have the knowledge to deal with this changing stage in life, supporting each other through the bad days.
You can book menopause training for employees, line managers, HR, Occupational health, business leaders and menopause champions online through the BMR Health and Wellbeing, starting your journey to become a certified menopause friendly employer.
