There are more women over 50 in the workplace than ever before. Not all of them will experience menopause symptoms, but about 75% will be adversely affected. The implications for organisations who do not provide appropriate support include; increased absenteeism, under-performance, increased sick leave, lower productivity and staff retention issues.
