Ingeus has been named as a finalist in two categories of the industry-recognised Menopause Friendly Employer Awards - powered by HSBC UK, first direct and M&S Bank.
Organised by Menopause Friendly and supported by the CIPD, the inaugural Menopause Friendly Employer Awards attracted over 85 entries across 10 categories. Winners will be announced at the Awards ceremony on Thursday September 22, 2022, at the Leonardo Royal Hotel, St Paul’s. The event will be hosted by broadcaster Louise Minchin where 180 guests will attend in person as 100s more join via live link from across the country.
Ingeus has been shortlisted in the following categories:
Most Open Workplace – for the organisation that has created a series of initiatives to allow for open conversations around menopause, including support from senior leadership through awareness and education.
Best Engagement Campaign – for the organisation that has created a campaign that has ignited changing perceptions of menopause in the workplace through creativity, making it a normal conversation.
Juliet Mortiss, People & Culture Director, commented: “Being Menopause Friendly is a key part in our commitment to being a inclusive workplace. With 64% of our employees women, I’m delighted our work encouraging people to share and support experiences in the workplace has been recognised in this way.”
Melisa Cuningham, Employee Relations Lead, added: “The way our teams have come together to support each other be Menopause Friendly is inspiring, thank you to all the teams who have shared their experiences so that we can enable positive experiences in the workplace. This is just the beginning!”.
“The standard of work and level of activity demonstrated by entrants to our first-ever Menopause Friendly Employer Awards has been really high, says Deborah Garlick, CEO of Henpicked: Menopause in The Workplace. “Engagement and honest conversations are crucial in order to change the lived experience of menopause in the workplace and I’m pleased to see recognition of Ingeus’ hard work in these areas.
“It was an absolute pleasure to join the independent judging panel as they reviewed each application and to see the passion, dedication and commitment of these inspirational businesses and people to change the lived experience of menopause in their workplace. Not long ago, menopause was so clearly a taboo in the workplace: now we’re preparing to host a prestigious Awards event to celebrate the achievements and progress being made in this area: it’s wonderful!”
