Menopause affects your bottom line
It’s not just hot flashes
It’s a family matter
The U.S. is lagging behind
Employers are feeling the impact. More than 80% of women surveyed say that menopause symptoms have negatively impacted their work. Women with hot flashes lost 57% more work productivity days than women without them, and untreated hot flashes cost $1,346/year for healthcare resource utilization (incremental direct cost) and $770/year of incremental indirect costs driven by absenteeism. Sleep disturbance, vaginal dryness, anxiety, depression, and other prevalent symptoms only add to these costs (Sarrel et al., 2015).
Loss of estrogen in menopause is directly linked to an increased risk of chronic conditions including osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and arthritis. Managing menopause symptoms is a key step toward healthy aging, reducing chronic disease risk and cost, and continued performance.
It’s not just female employees who are affected. Partners and close family experience the impact of menopause symptoms, creating a ripple effect that impacts work, family, and interpersonal relationships.
Other developed countries are leading the way. U.K. employers already recognize this problem and are offering basic solutions, including education, support groups, and resource hubs. A great start for sure, but to truly support menopausal women more advanced solutions are needed.
