The industry-recognised mark of excellence for menopause at work

Committed to being menopause friendly

Employers in Australia

Since launching on 1 August 2023, Menopause Friendly Australia’s call to action to support people through menopause at work has been heard loud and clear. 

Workplaces understand that providing awareness, training and information to help people thrive through menopause is not just good for individuals, it also makes good business sense. 

With productivity and gender equality high on the agenda for corporate Australia, being menopause friendly is fast becoming business critical for all employers.

Becoming a Menopause Friendly employer, having open conversations, and providing the right support, is important for the wellbeing of all of our employees that are affected by menopause – whether they are experiencing the symptoms themselves, or supporting a team member or loved one.”

-Nicola Thomson, VP People and Culture at Anglogold Ashanti Austrlia

accredited menopause friendly

Employers in Britain

Following four years of breaking the taboo of menopause at work, the UK team launched The Menopause Friendly Accreditation in 2021. 

The industry-recognised mark of excellence for menopause at work, nearly 100 employers large and small across all industries have achieved accreditation as a Menopause Friendly Employer.

Much more than a tickbox, promise or pledge, employers that achieve accreditation have demonstrated to The Menopause Friendly Independent Panel of experts that their  organisation actively supports menopause at work across five accreditation pillars.

Their great work is catching attention across the globe, with the New York Time recently referencing accredited Menopause Friendly employers HSBC UK, Accenture and West Ham United Football club as organisations leading the way in the menopause space.

Over 500 employers are committed to being menopause friendly employers as actively supporting menopause at work becomes a must-have for UK organisations.

“Achieving The Menopause Friendly Accreditation ourselves was an important milestone in the work we’re doing to support an inclusive and open workplace culture, and that includes the menopause”

-Ben Horner, HR Director at Boots UK & ROI
