How The Menopause Is Impacting The Workplace

The research is unequivocal: record numbers of women are struggling at work as they transition through the peri-menopause and menopause.

One in ten women aged 45-55 have left their job because of symptoms of the menopause. (Menopause and the Workplace report (by the Fawcett Society and Channel 4).

More than two in five (44 per cent) of women said their ability to work had been affected due to the menopause

You’ll likely have noticed this happening in your own company. Perhaps you’re aware of colleagues struggling with their day-to-day responsibilities. Perhaps you’ve already lost some of your most valued, talented women because they felt they could no longer function at work as they used to.

This is a serious issue that is significantly impacting the workplace – and which isn’t going to go away.

We’re passionate about empowering women to navigate their “second spring” in the most positive way possible. We believe that every woman should have the tools to not only perform their best at work – but to move towards greater wellbeing, joy and fulfilment in their life.

Jude Moryoussef

Jude spent 20 years working in the corporate world of textiles, designing and launching innovative products to the marketplace, before training as a level 3 personal trainer and health and wellness practitioner. She initially specialised in pre/post-natal and functional mobility and then extended her expertise to third age peri-to-post menopause.

Her passion is supporting women to be the best versions of themselves as they transition through this period and she has delivered workshops through her practice, Jude’s Menopause Wellness.

A mum of four, Jude is also a magistrate. She sits in a problem-solving court for women, where she educates them on positive self-care and lifestyle choices which can help to transform their life outcomes.

Our partnership goes way, way beyond a shared passion for supporting other women. We’ve been close friends for nearly 30 years and have been there for each other through the ups and the downs.

For the past 21 years, we’ve run the Big Birthday Appeal together – a charity we co-founded in 2001 and which aims to inspire children to give to others and appreciate the good in their lives.

We love hanging out together, whether that’s walking in nature, swimming in a lake, dancing…or eating!
