World Menopause Day: How to end workplace stigma

World Menopause Day is marked on October 18.

In the US, about 27 million people (20 percent of the workforce) experience menopause.

This results in many people quitting their jobs or considering other alternatives due to their symptoms.

Hence, it is important to create a safe work environment for those experiencing menopause symptoms.

Companies can better support employees with menopause and reduce stigma by educating all employees on the effects.

Companies can provide training and information to managers on potential symptoms of menopause.

It is important to create a menopause policy to allow those experiencing symptoms to take rest.

Fostering an environment where people can discuss menopause comfortably is highly recommended.

Companies must address menopause as a medical issue and highlight it in health awareness initiatives.
