Human Resources – Menopause in the Workplace. And it’s only women, right?

As women are working for longer, menopause can get in the way of their work and careers at a time when organisations need to retain their talent and have everyone performing at their best. It is important to remember that men can experience age-related changes in hormone levels too – in what is known as the andropause.
