Supporting Midlife Women in the Workplace
Women over 55 will constitute more than one-third of those hired to join the workforce by 2026. Surprisingly, only a limited number of companies address gendered ageism in their diversity, equity, and inclusion policies. Many women report that midlife menopausal symptoms are compounded because of workplace taboos related to aging. Recent studies have shown that when menopausal symptoms are experienced in the workplace, women also report less overall job satisfaction and less workplace engagement - in several studies, a connection was made between menopausal symptoms at work and a much higher intention to quit. In a large US study of over a quarter of a million women in the workplace, researchers found that untreated vasomotor symptoms (e.g., night sweats, hot flushes) cost employers over $370,000,000 in direct health costs and indirect workplace costs. In this self-paced, online course you'll learn how to best support and retain your midlife employees with healthy living strategies to address midlife health issues.
