Menopause Support

The menopause impacts the lives of millions of people but it isn't widely spoken about, particularly at work.
So it's good to know there are lots of resources available to Anchor colleagues to help support them and build understanding of the menopause.

We have signed up the Menopause Friendly pledge which aims to raise awareness and encourage employers to support their employees by enabling open and respectful conversations, committing to make workplace adjustments and providing information on the menopause.

We’ve created the ‘Let’s Talk Menopause’ Workplace group, where colleagues are welcome  to talk about perimenopause and menopause, find peer support and helpful resources.

Our Menopause Guidance supports colleagues and managers to understand more about menopause and adjustments that can be made at work.

Our Colleague Advice Line, Health Assured website and Healthy Advantage app also offer a wide range of free support, including: 

  • Dedicated menopause information section on the Health Assured Hub
  • A menopause video (use ‘worklife’ as the username and password to access it)
  • Qualified nurses available to offer advice on a range of medical or health-related issues, including the menopause. They are happy to help, whether you just need a sympathetic ear and practical guidance. You can call anytime – 24 hours a day, seven days a week for free, on 0800 316 9337
  • A health risk assessment tool, that might cover menopause, that enables you to set and track goals to improve your health. Simply download the My Healthy Advantage app from the Apple or Android app stores and register with your preferred email address using ‘worklife’ as the unique code 

Remember, it’s good to talk

If the menopause is impacting on you physically or mentally, please speak to your line manager about what adjustments or support can be put in place to help you bring your best self to work.
