Following the review of our polices and benefits last year where we significantly progressed our wellbeing, sickness, and inclusion approaches, we are now delighted to be part of the Bloom Mpower Menofesto,
The Bloom Menofesto is a commitment to a change in the language, support and understanding in the communications industry in the lead up to, during and after menopause.
Earlier this year, we also had Sarah Williams, co-founder of the Menopause Inclusion Collective and Katherine Gale, Consultant Nurse in Women’s Health and founder of Fluxstate, come in to talk to the whole team about symptoms and signs, how to start building your menopause toolkit sooner rather than later and how to get the right support.
The advice from both Bloom and Sarah and Katherine, plus our own experiences of the peri/menopause has helped shape our practices and fed into our new menopause policy and support checklist which covers anybody experiencing the menopause and hormonal changes as well as the people who support them.
