Menopause In The Workplace

The female workforce makes up 52% of the working population and provides vital skills, commercial acumen, and creative energy in the workplace. However, up to one-third of women will experience significant menopausal symptoms, both physical and psychological, that will impact their quality of life, and their work, and can lead to a lower retention rate in this cohort.

Assisting organizations in retaining and supporting their female colleagues. The Cooking Academy offers a Menopause workshop at work – a series of presentations designed to create awareness, educate, and provide support for menopause-friendly work practices.

During this presentation, you will learn:

  • What menopause is and how does it affect the body?
  • The physical and emotional symptoms women experience during menopause – What to look out for
  • How does body chemistry change during menopause?
  • How an organization can support its female colleagues going through menopause?
  • What nutrition is needed to balance hormones and combat symptoms
  • Which foods to add to your daily intake and those to avoid
  • Simple lifestyle changes that can help reduce symptoms

What’s included in the menopause workshop:

  • Presentations that explain the symptoms of menopause and how they present themselves
  • Expert advice and tips for support from colleagues, line managers, and family
  • Insight into metabolic impact, serotonin levels, and weight gain
  • Guidance on the top ten nutrient-dense ingredients to eat
  • Delicious recipes to help achieve dietary goals

We believe that menopause awareness isn’t just for women; everyone needs to understand how to help their direct reports, colleagues, partners, sisters, and significant others.

If you’re looking to create a supportive and inclusive workplace that values its female workforce, Menopause & The Workplace is a must-attend event.
Book now to help retain and recruit your talented female colleagues and support their physical and emotional well-being.

What people say.

What an amazing day we all had…it has been the topic of conversation today and the photos have been flying around the office!  It has had the desired effect on the teams here so we are delighted with the outcome.     Thank you all for your most professional help not only before we arrived but during our event too.    (Dawn Lipman – Full Power Utilities)

“I have to say the team really enjoyed the day off and generally are of the opinion that it was the best retreat event we have had so far! It was perfect for us, very interactive with clear goals and timelines and of course the pay off of lovely food.”  (Bren Vaughan - EBI) 
EBI – Employee Wellbeing Programme
Our cookery event was designed to improve inter-team relationships and encourage colleagues to get to know each other outside of the workspace since happy employees mean happy customers - and growing revenues.  Our objectives were met 100%, exceeding everyone’s expectations for the day, The teams had great fun and most importantly, took something away for themselves, and they have talked about the day since so we’ve created shared memories.   There was good wine and plenty of banter and jokes, it was highly sociable.  And for me, the best part of the day was “watching the whole team putting their effort into the cooking and enjoying themselves.” (Thomas Schneider  - Concur Technologies)

The event was a lot of fun and a great experience for the whole team, especially since most were out of their comfort zone and yet embraced the tasks. The motivational presentation on nutritional eating was very well received by all the teams and has inspired change here. They are highly charged and engaging with each other as we wanted and so we have achieved everything we had hoped and more. (Trevor Ballantyne - BMW)

I was delighted to see how the event really brought them all together to work to achieve the tasks and they really enjoyed themselves and have been buzzing about it in the office ever since.
