Women experiencing menopause make up one fourth of the workforce. And yet, less than one percent of businesses have any support or policies in place for these women. "Working Through Menopause" highlights menopause as a workplace issue—not just a woman's issue—that impacts employees, businesses, and the bottom line.
Women over the age of 50 are one of the fastest growing demographics in the workplace. Understanding their unique challenges will help to construct a supportive workplace and create many positive effects for businesses' most valuable asset—its employees.
Written by international menopause expert Dr. Machelle Seibel and his wife, Harvard-trained psychiatrist Dr. Sharon Seibel, this book suggests highly relevant and accessible changes to enable businesses to better retain their female employees, boost performance, improve work satisfaction, and lower potential litigation risk and expenses.
Not addressing menopause costs businesses an estimated $810 billion globally, and this figure is expected to rise. The simple steps provided in this book will help to enable employers to better support their women working through menopause to achieve a healthier, happier, and more productive workforce.
