Channel 4 has become the first UK media company to launch a menopause policy for their employees in an effort to break down the taboo subject and foster a more supportive working environment for those going through the transition.


The scheme is implementing cool work spaces to ease symptoms such as hot flushes, flexible working hours and sick leave if workers fell unwell. Additionally, the policy will include menopause awareness briefings to its leadership and HR teams to encourage a more open and supportive conversation in the workplace.
