Menopause Support at Haymarket

Haymarket Media Group aims to support all staff experiencing menopausal symptoms and help colleagues and line managers understand how they can support employees experiencing such symptoms.

Reasonable adjustments

We strive to achieve a comfortable working environment for all colleagues. For those experiencing menopausal symptoms, small adjustments to the working day can make a big difference.

We recognise that flexibility is key to anyone suffering as a result of transitioning through the menopause and we aim to facilitate flexible working where possible.

Some employees may require a more temporary/flexible change to their working environment. These changes may include;

  •  More breaks and time away from the computer
  •  Flexible approach to remote working
  •  Earlier start and finish times to avoid peak times when travelling into the office
  •  A request to reduce working hours on a temporary basis
  •  Turning their camera off when on Teams calls

Sickness/Paid leave

An employee may feel unwell and unable to work due to menopausal symptoms. The employee should inform their line manager if this is the case and follow the correct absence reporting procedures.

 General support

  • We aim to facilitate an open and understanding working environment. Employees are encouraged to inform their line manager that they are experiencing menopausal symptoms at an early stage to ensure the necessary support is made available to support their individual needs.
  • Employees who do not wish to discuss the issue with their direct line manager may find it helpful to have an initial discussion with a trusted colleague, a member of their HR team or a Mental Health First Aider.

Medical support

  • We encourage employees to speak to their GP when they are experiencing symptoms. The Healix virtual health service app offers access to a GP 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • We also provides access to a confidential service via the Employee Assistance Programme The service offers support, expert advice and specialist counselling. It’s free and easy to access and is available online via phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
