The Menopause Friendly Accreditation is awarded to organisations that demonstrate a commitment to embracing menopause in the workplace
The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) has achieved the Menopause Friendly Accreditation in recognition of its work to foster an inclusive culture and establish the right support for colleagues affected by menopause.
The accreditation, awarded by Henpicked, recognises high standards and proven practices that embrace menopause in the workplace.
The NDA has implemented various measures, including establishing a Menohub support group, training menopause champions and making the Peppy digital health app available to employees and their partners.
David Vineall, NDA group chief people officer and executive sponsor of the Menohub, said: “We are thrilled to achieve accreditation, it’s testament to the work we are doing to support our colleagues, across the organisation, no matter which stage of their menopause journey they are in or how they are affected.
“Being an inclusive workplace brings huge benefits, for both staff and employers, and we will continue to take positive action to ensure all our NDA group colleagues are supported and feel their very best at work.”
In order to achieve the Menopause Friendly Accreditation employers are assessed by an independent panel and must demonstrate evidence of their effectiveness in six key areas, including culture, policies and practices, training, engagement, facilities and evaluation.
Deborah Garlick, CEO and founder of Henpicked: Menopause in the Workplace, said: “The NDA is doing fantastic work around menopause in the workplace and richly deserves the Menopause Friendly Accreditation.
“Combining daily good practice led by its menopause champions with 24-7 access to guidance and advice on the Menohub ensures menopause awareness remains high and support is close at hand for employees experiencing menopause at work and those supporting a colleague.”
