Menopause-Friendly Workplaces

Recent initiatives highlight increased attention to workers struggling with menopause. While the implementation has taken off overseas (particularly in the UK), it has also started to catch on in the United States. For instance, New York City Mayor Eric Adams has made menopause in the workplace a cause of his, while companies like Nvidia now offers its employees access to various health resources.

Business Takeaway: On one hand, this is good news that may immediately impact a substantial portion of the workforce. On the other, this reflects the glacial pace at which the workplace has adapted to an increasingly varied workforce. Stay tuned, as these initiatives are likely to expand as a workplace trend, if not some sort of more significant administrative or legislative development.
