Help STUC investigate menopause at work

The Menopause in Work survey, which was launched at the STUC women’s conference in Glenrothes on 30 October, is open until 1 December 2017.

The STUC women’s committee is interested in investigating how Scottish employers are responding to menopause in work and what the experiences of women in the workplace are. We would like you to complete this survey as honestly as you can. Your personal data will always be kept 100% confidential and is open to men and women, union members and non-union members.

We encourage you to share the survey with friends, family, and colleagues in order that we may use the broad trends gathered from this data to influence and create guidance for workplaces, in order to enhance the experience of hundreds of thousands of women at work during this time in their lives.
