That's 3.5 million women aged over 50 who are currently in employment in companies like yours. And with 1 in 4 experiencing serious, debilitating symptoms that can last up to 15 years...
You need to know how the impact of menopause is affecting your business and its employees.
Even if you do go through "female-focused" training, that still doesn't give you what you need.
Answer: It doesn't.
I've interviewed dozens of managers about their needs and it's clear there is a disconnect between menopause training for women and menopause training for managers.
Why? Because they're two different things being managed as one.
And therein lies the problem.
As a people manager and the "go to person" for your teams, there's an expectation you'll have the answers in relation to menopause and the workplace...
Women are very good at doing all they can to minimise their symptoms and take care of themselves.
Once they get to work though, menopause doesn't take a break or conveniently switch off to meet contractual obligations.
And if there's nothing in place to support these women when they get to work...
This is how and why things begin to go wrong, often impacting several areas of the business inlcuding its people.
"I got a sound level of knowledge without having to be an expert. I view Menocourse training as being valuable for men and women especially line managers."

For many working women menopause is an inconvenient nightmare, especially for those who feel managers are not supporting them during the transition.
In their defence most managers don’t know what support to offer. While many organisations don’t know where to start.

You won’t find an easier, more discreet solution to your current problem, so here's a question. At a time when more than ever before, employees are calling on employers to support their mental, physical and financial well being, will you respond and give your people what they need now, making you that forward thinking leader who cares enough, or can you afford to take a chance, wait until the wheels come off and deal with the fallout when it happens?
Decision makers, its time to decide....................

Yes. Men are often adversely affected by menopause either in their personal lives, professionally or both. Without including men in menopause education and support we cannot expect them to benefit from or contribute to an improved menopause friendly workplace culture. If you’re in any doubt as to how men are affected and often deeply so, Module 1 lesson 3: An Interview with Paul is a real eye opener.
Some women go through menopause in their 30’s. Having staff under 40 is not a reason to forgo the course. Younger managers, both male and female fared worst in our research when it came to understanding and managing menopause in the workplace. Here are some examples:
Add to this the number of male managers who repeatedly told us these two things:
Yes. For a young member of staff whose mother is going through menopause and who up to now has been awarded mother of the year status, their world may implode for a time when they feel their home has turned into a war zone and they tearfully complain, “my mother behaves like a woman possessed ... nothing seems to get through to her anymore." She’s stopped caring for us and she hates my dad”.
Witnessing such severe and sudden changes at home can cause high anxiety in young people and often affects work place performance, particularly for new starters entering the world of work for the first time.
Not everyone sails through menopause. 1 in 4 women don't. As a manager you'll want to be informed as to how menopause can impact the business and your teams. And be identified as that forward thinking leader who cares enough about their people to either undertake, or provide this training, thereby meeting needs and implementing subtle changes for the benefit of all concerned.

Menocourse is not a self care course for women going through the menopause and while we're strong advocates of female focused training, that's not what this is.
Menocourse is work place related and does not offer advice, guidance or teaching of the following:
Imagine the relief when you bring this time saving, business wide opportunity to the attention of busy decision makers. Knowing you've been instrumental in getting Managers the right training they need and deserve. And at the same time going that extra mile by showing employees they matter enough for you to take the kind of action that supports their mental, physical and financial health in relation to menopause.
Thats it - The search is over - You found Menocourse for Managers - You have your solution.
"I know for many of us blokes (non-blokes too) the thought of doing face to face training on menopause would cause us to squirm with embarrassment. Not so with Menocourse. If your'e looking for a way to manage menopause at work I would highly recommend Mencourse as an end to end solution."
