The menopause is a natural stage of life experienced by most women, yet it remains a taboo subject in many workplaces. CIPD research found that 6 in 10 working women aged 45-55 who were experiencing the menopause said that it had a negative impact on them at work. Furthermore, reports suggest that almost a million women in the UK have left their jobs completely because of menopausal symptoms.
