Nellsar launches webpage to foster menopause awareness and support colleagues

Last year, Nellsar made steps towards becoming a menopause friendly company. In June we sent out a survey to ask team members how they would like to be supported at work with regards to the menopause; one of the key responses was individuals asking for better access to information and signposting on menopause help.

Pause for Thought

In response to this, we have launched a dedicated webpage called ‘Pause for Thought‘ – an online platform providing information on well-being, diet, lifestyle, and practical guidance for menopause.

Pause for Thought is an online hub where colleagues can access information and latest news relating to perimenopause, menopause and post-menopause.

Visit the page at:

Menopause Workplace Pledge

Additionally, as part of our commitment we have also signed the Menopause Workplace Pledge, committing to:

  • Recognising that the menopause can be an issue in the workplace and women need support.
  • Talking openly, positively, and respectfully about the menopause.
  • Actively supporting and informing team members affected by the menopause.

Leni Wood, Head of Nutrition and Wellness and menopause advocate at Nellsar commented: “By understanding menopause we can help break down the barriers that make those experiencing it feel isolated. The webpage’s primary objective is to educate all of our workforce inclusively about menopause and by making information around the subject available, we hope to open up communication within the workplace. By providing colleagues with the knowledge and support they need to navigate this life transition with confidence, it empowers them to thrive both personally and professionally.”
