A new service has been launched to support the fastest growing demographic in the workplace, menopausal women – who are at significantly higher risk of leaving their job due to the impact symptoms may have on their work.

Survey results from a study by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development show 45% of women over the age of 45 feel menopausal symptoms have a negative impact on their work and 47% of women who need to take a day off work due to menopause symptoms don’t tell their employer the real reason for their absence.

In response to the issues and impact on the emotional wellbeing of employees, Growth Partners has launched a new menopause support service for its clients through the My SMART-e app.

Scott Read, CEO of employee services said:

“It’s our mission to make employers’ and employees’ lives happier, healthier, and easier and providing relevant wellbeing services is a big part of this.

“We’re proud to launch yet another resource to help employers support their employees’ physical and emotional wellbeing – which we know are crucial for decreasing absence rates, improving productivity, and ultimately achieving business growth.”

Scott added:

“It’s so important for employers to feel equipped to provide the support workers need to be happy and healthy at work. The menopause can also have an impact on family members and colleagues – so support services for them is key too.”

Growth Partners’ new menopause service is being added to the My SMART-e app from 17 July 2023 to give all registered users confidential, simple access to menopause support services – for themselves, a colleague, friend or loved one.

The new menopause support package includes:

  • Information and advice for those who are directly impacted by menopause including confidential 24/7 access to counselling and GP services.
  • Advice for managers to help create a supportive, flexible, and comfortable work environment including webinars and a free accredited training course.
  • Support for family, friends, and co-workers with signposting to recommended local and national services and support groups.
