Can you talk about menopause at work?

The days when a manager could succeed by a weekly team meeting and counting employee output have long passed.  We now live in a world where employees are encouraged to bring their whole selves to work and to integrate personal life into business life.  As a result, we get to know each other better, we care for each other more and our work benefits from both.   This change also means that topics once hidden under dark of night, are now discussed between manager and employee.

This Harvard Business Review article makes a strong case for companies to proactively support employees experiencing menopause.  By employers getting ahead of health conditions, including menopause, the employee base feels supported, knows where to go for resources and is able to stay healthier and therefore more productive.  

So the answer?  Yes, you can talk about menopause at work, and as a leader you should learn how to create a successful conversation. 

When the workforce has improved physical and mental health, everyone wins.
