Family Nursing & Home Care (FNHC) have signed the 51 Employers Pledge, committing to enable a menopause-friendly workplace, in alignment with the 14 stated commitments, by 31st December 2022.
Led by The Diversity Network, See her Thrive and Affinity Private Wealth, the 51 Employers Pledge is open to Jersey businesses, public sector entities and charities and stands as ‘an opportunity to be agents of change by signing up to a progressive, 14 point pledge on the topic of menopause, in the workplace.’
The 14 point pledge includes: Treat menopause with the same level of seriousness, care and support as we do with other physical and mental health conditions, take an individual approach to menopause support, recognising that everyone’s journey is different and should be considered on a case-by-case basis. It also stresses the importance of making evidence-based information about the menopause available and accessible to all staff, including signposting to internal and external sources of support.
FNHC CEO Rosemarie Finley commented: “At FNHC we are committed to supporting all of our colleagues through every stage of their lives.
“Recognising the menopause as a significant health event for women and also making sure we support them through this time is just part of what we must do to care for our colleagues.”
