Channel 4 gave away its pioneering dedicated menopause policy ahead of World Menopause Day which took place on Sunday 18th October 2020.
Channel 4 CEO Alex Mahon said: “We’re really proud to have had so many conversations around menopause this year at Channel 4 and confront a subject that remains ridiculously taboo in the workplace.
Our dedicated policy has provided Channel 4’s employees – both our women facing the menopause and all our managers – with vital tools and support. This is a time when even more than ever we need to respect the concerns and constraints of our staff so I encourage all companies to look at this. By giving away our policy to everyone we hope to make it even easier for other companies to benefit from the retention of expert women in their industries.”
