Keeping Talent at the Heart of Your Organisation
Each organisation will have their specific priorities and goals that require focus to ensure that their female talent stays, develops, and attains those senior and executive positions. What specific organisational pressures and goals do you want Menopause support and awareness to help resolve?
Genuine and visible opportunities for women to grow and develop with a sense of purpose and fulfilment. Creating and maintaining this environment during Menopause drives loyalty, commitment and performance.
Being the employer of choice requires a comprehensive and inclusive employee value proposition (EVP) that is demonstrably part of the daily employee experience. Women of all ages will seek out Menopause readiness as a pillar of a female-positive organisation.
Defined and enabled pathways to developmental, management and executive positions, with mentoring and sponsorship. Individual Menopause plans that support flexibility and adjustments will be vital in achieving this.
Menopause enabled organisations welcome a transparent approach that positively projects their character, internally and externally, doing the right thing for their people while adding bottom-line value.
What clients say …
Kate delivered a fantastic talk at Papier to help us launch our Menopause Support Policy, coinciding with World Menopause Day. She helped to educate our employees about menopause, breaking down the stigma that surrounds it and gave some really useful and practical advice for how we as an organisation can support employees experiencing menopause in the workplace. Kate tailored the session to the Papier values, which really brought the session to life!
Kin + Carta
Kate’s sessions were really well attended and pitched perfectly. They were informative, thorough and really relaxed. Kate is a wonderful speaker and incredibly knowledgeable and engaging. Our KIN got so much out of the awareness sessions and we will continue to build on this with Kate’s help.
Kate delivered a fantastic talk for us at one of our guest speaking events. The talk centred around the impact of menopause for women in business. It was superb and really well received by the group. The message she delivered impacts not just property but every industry and every organisation. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Kate and the important work she does.
Creating an effective, modern approach to Menopause
We design programmes that are built around four key elements which, when combined, enable you to achieve and maintain your organisational specific goals.
Underpinning successful change, awareness drives the opportunity for a new way of thinking about a phase of life that until recently was a social and workplace taboo. We create a base layer of vital Menopause learning for all employees – from the boardroom to the post room – in sessions from 20 minutes to an hour.
Common topics include:
- Menopause awareness for all
- Menopause for men
- Menopause for women
- Menopause Express (short 20min embedded sessions)
Workshops focus on specific groups within your organisation, providing an opportunity to unpick the unique business challenges that Menopause presents. Highly interactive, they provide an environment where colleagues develop new understanding and modern ways of working.
