We are one of the
48 Founding partners
At Royal Mail we currently have around 16,500 female colleagues who are likely to be experiencing menopausal and perimenopausal symptoms. We want our colleagues to feel they can have the conversation and seek the support they need however the menopause is impacting them. We don’t want any woman in our business to feel that they’re unable to do their job or progress their career.
At Royal Mail, we are committed to supporting the health and wellbeing of all of our colleagues. Under the banner of ‘Let’s Talk Menopause’, we are normalising the conversation about menopause, raising awareness and providing greater education and support.
The campaign ensures that no woman feels unable to fulfil their work ambitions. This is really important for us as a business as we have around 16,500 female colleagues that are likely to be experiencing perimenopause and menopause symptoms.
We have formed a working group with both female colleagues and men and created a comprehensive package of options to ensure we are providing our colleagues with as much support as possible.
Zareena Brown, Chief People Officer at Royal Mail
The Let’s Talk Menopause Workplace group has become a place to go, to find links on expert advice or just to share your journey to support work colleagues on their own roller coaster ride.
This group will continue updating workplace notice boards and sharing their knowledge to help and support Royal Mail’s employees, young and old. Change has begun as more and more of Royal Mail’s employees speak out asking for information and the support they need for a happy healthy working environment.
