Renfrewshire Council

Supporting colleagues with menopause

How we support colleagues with menopause, what it is, who it affects, support from your manager and at work, menopause leave.

A key focus for Renfrewshire Council is to support the health and wellbeing of colleagues by providing a work environment where you can thrive and fulfil your potential. 

We recognise that there may be times when it can be difficult for colleagues who are affected by menopause.

Our menopause guidance and support aims to:

  • raise awareness about menopause and how symptoms can affect colleagues at work
  • encourage colleagues to ask for supports so they can continue to thrive and fulfil their potential at work
  • provide tools and guidance to help colleagues discuss their experience of menopause in a trusting environment and engage in constructive conversations
  • educate managers on how they can support colleagues affected by menopause symptoms
  • signpost to other support like counselling and Occupational Health Services.
