Menopause awareness month

By GSR2R Admin | 27th October 2022

It’s something every woman will go through. Although everyone has their own unique experience of going through the menopause, I am yet to meet anyone who has anything positive to say.

This month is menopause awareness month, which is an excellent subject to bring to people’s attention.

It can be an extremely tough time for people without little explanation or help to make it better.

Working in the recruitment industry you have the added pressure to always work to the best of your ability with a daily full dairy.

Menopause and me

When the menopause started for me, I found work extremely difficult. What really helped me was:

  1. taking time out, even an hour or so, when needed
  2. having a team that would cover my work when needed
  3. being able to talk to other recruiters who were going through the menopause too

Menopause awareness

Bringing awareness to what every woman goes through is brilliant. What I would like to know is what your companies are doing to support you?

I know my clients are discussing this now, however there is no clear path of how they can be supportive. What would help you?

What to do when menopause impacts your work, according to an HR expert.

When you’re at the top of your game in your career, acing every project and presentation that comes your way, perimenopause can throw a real spanner in the works.

From adjusted hours to a change in uniform, there’s a lot you can do. It’s important for you to know that perimenopause has affected many people’s work. You are not alone.

“A huge number of people leave their job because of their perimenopause symptoms,” says hormone specialist Dr. Sohere Roked. “I’ve seen many patients where this has happened.”

Gone are the sparkling ideas and inspired initiatives, and in their place are brain fog, hot flushes and irritability.
