Managing menopause at work can be tricky.

While some people may not feel the impacts of this natural transition, others find it derailing to their lives, careers, and physical and mental health.

Research has shown that menopause symptoms can significantly impact attendance and performance in the workplace.

In Australia in 2017, just under 80% of women aged 45-55 years were in paid employment. However, many talented and knowledgeable women experiencing menopause will leave the workforce due to difficulties.

Further, a recent Australian study found that while 83% of women will experience some effects of menopause on their work, 70% would not feel comfortable talking to their manager about their challenges or needs.

As the number of employed women transitioning through menopause increases, employers must embrace a more open conversation about menopause, and its effect on their employees’ working lives.

In 2022 44% of women experiencing menopause reported impacted ability to work, with 10% leaving work due to menopause symptoms
