Build UK has worked with Citation to publish a template Menopause Policy which can be used by members to help employees in the workplace going through the menopause. Employees of menopausal age are the fastest growing workplace demographic in the UK, and this policy has been developed in response to calls from members for support on raising awareness amongst employees and retaining women in the workforce to continue benefiting from their skills and knowledge.

The template policy has been drafted so that it can be adopted in its entirety, or elements can be incorporated into existing policy documents, and members will need to provide basic contact information to download it. It sets out the employer’s responsibilities as well as practical ways to provide an inclusive and supportive working environment for employees going through the menopause and their colleagues.
