Drove Veterinary Hospital is committed to providing an inclusive working environment for all employees throughout all stages of their working lives.
This includes enabling employees who are experiencing menopausal symptoms to get the support they need in order to manage their symptoms at work. To achieve this, it is important for all practice employees to have an awareness of the menopause and to know that not everyone experiences this in the same way.
This topic should not be taboo or hidden and can be discussed openly and without embarrassment. The menopause can have a negative impact on an employee’s personal and working life. Although not everyone will experience symptoms, by supporting those who do, it is hoped that this will improve their wellbeing at work and minimise any impact on attendance at work. By creating an inclusive working environment, it is hoped that this will encourage staff to ask for what they need, without judgement.
