Insurance Corporation working towards menopause friendly accreditation

Monday 16 May 2022


Insurance Corporation is the first Channel Island employer working towards the menopause friendly accreditation.

The accreditation is a recognised standard of achievement. It's achieved when an independent panel of judges is satisfied that an organisation is offering the right awareness, education and support.

Managing Director, Mark Marshall, said the company was committed to attaining the accreditation. 

The menopause is such an important subject, but one which people generally find difficult to discuss. We’re committed to visibly working to support the menopause in the workplace and create an environment where it can be talked about more easily,” he said. 

We have also pledged to put guidance in place so people can understand the signs, symptoms and impact as well as being able to support colleagues and family and friends through menopause and the andropause."

HR & PR Executive and Mental Health First Aider, Michelle Steele, added: We are working towards a long-term, sustainable change in the workplace, where we create an environment where our team can thrive and be the best version of themselves."

Ms Steele continued: “We have two fully trained menopause champions to provide line manager support, training and raise awareness throughout our whole team. We will be proactively helping people with their symptoms and offering practical support. 

We will also be supporting and providing advice to colleagues whose partner, friends or family members may also be suffering with symptoms.

Menopause Champion, Donna Binet, said: “We are committed to making a real difference to our team. We have a variety of practical solutions and adjustments that could make a huge difference to a member of staff feeling supported vs struggling in the workplace.”
