Our Mission at Floresco is to help YOU to support YOUR female workforce through their menopause transition.
The workplace is changing, and the role that midlife women play in the workplace is changing with it.
With women over 50 currently shown to be the fastest growing sector of the workforce, it is inevitable that your organisation will likely have employees working through their menopause.
Why does this matter?
Because the physical and emotional changes that can affect some women as they transition through menopause can create temporary difficulties which may have an impact on performance.
Research has shown that as many as 25% of women have considered resigning as a result of a lack of support from their employer. With an estimated cost of £25-30K to recruit a vacant post, not to mention the loss of intellectual capital, it makes sense for employers to actively support their female staff through this natural life process
Owner and founder of Floresco Training and Coaching. Following a 32 year career with the Ministry of Defence, she spent the last 10 years in learning and development, as a trainer and learning advisor.
As well as holding a bachelor of arts degree in Business and Enterprise, Bev is a certified health coach, nutritionist and behaviour change coach, she set up Floresco initially as a health coach working with midlife women going through their midlife transition. Inevitably many of those women were experiencing menopausal symptoms which led Bev to delve further into the subject, especially as she had resigned her own career to start a business at the age of 52 whilst navigating her own menopause.
Bev is a member of the British Menopause Society and has worked with other menopause organisations including Henpicked – Menopause in the Workplace.
A request from Royal Air Force Air Command to deliver Menopause at Work training to their managers and female employees led to the expansion of Floresco to include Menopause at Work awareness training and a welcome return to her first love – teaching.
It very soon became apparent that this ‘hot topic’ (pun intended) needed to be understood by managers and business owners and Floresco’s mission to help organisations to support their female workforce through the menopause transition was forged.
How do we help?
We understand that just as no two women will experience menopause in the same way, no two organisations will have the same training needs. Consequently, our training packages are designed with you in mind. We will work together to ensure that the information your people receive is relevant and actionable and the training is tailored accordingly.
We deliver training to two specific audiences; Managers and Female Employees.
Our Supporting Employees through Menopause training is designed to provide line managers with the information and understanding to:
Our Coping With Menopause training is designed to educate female employees on the facts around menopause, the impact of menopause on health and wellbeing and the tools to manage their own menopause. The training emphasises the importance of making healthy lifestyle choices as well as providing information on medical and non-medical treatment options.
