We commissioned an evidence review into the menopause in 2017, which highlighted the important role employers can play in helping women to work during this phase of their lives. We have worked in partnership with the Women’s Business Council to develop and publish a Toolkit for employers: Staying On: The Age of Success. This promotes flexible working alongside other solutions to support and retain women in the workplace who are going through the menopause.
