HRM TV: Menopause and the workplace


The symptoms of menopause may inspire awkward conversation in the workplace, but it’s an important conversation that Professor Gavin Jack of Monash University is trying to facilitate.

Jack’s menopause research is also available in the AHRI:ASSIST section of the AHRI website.

I am very interested in this topic, I am a menopause counsellor and coach and the feedback I have had from many of my clients is exactly what Gavin was saying. I would be happy to discuss this further if I can be of any help. My website is http://www.approachingmenopause.com

It is great to know that this information is being put out there.
