BHETA are delighted to welcome WorkNest to talk about the support they can offer in Managing Menopause in the Workplace.
Why you should attend:
According to the NHS, 45% of women feel that menopausal symptoms have a negative impact on their work. What’s more, 47% who needed to take a day off said they wouldn’t tell their employer the real reason.
Clearly, the issue of menopause remains somewhat of a taboo topic. And given menopausal women are the fastest-growing demographic in the workforce, it’s a problem employers cannot afford to shy away from forever.
Join our free webinar with our partners at WorkNest on Managing Menopause in the Workplace to learn how employers can equip line managers to effectively support employees going through the menopause, and make sure you’re fully aware of your legal responsibilities, as well as the possible legal risks.
Hosted by WorkNest’s Employment Law & HR Training Manager, Lorna Gemmell, this session will cover:
- What the menopause is, including common symptoms and how it might impact women (and trans and non-binary people) at work
- How to support employees going through the menopause
- Employers’ obligations and the legal risks to be aware of when managing menopausal employees
- The role that line managers and workplace culture can play in supporting staff
- Final questions and discussion
Lorna Gemmell, EL and HR Training Manager, will talk for approximately 20-30 minutes and then answer questions from the audience.
The event is for BHETA members. Non-members who are interested in experiencing a BHETA event and are thinking of joining our association, are welcome to have a ‘taster session’, on the condition they are happy to have a membership chat with our sector manager.
