As part of Menopause Awareness Month, The Belfry Hotel & Resort has launched forward-thinking employee support tools to raise awareness of the impact menopause can have, and to help their teams navigate their personal experiences.

The resort is delivering numerous menopause awareness sessions which is open to all management and staff. The sessions will cover topics such as understanding the stages of the menopause, how it may affect an individual, and what help is available.

Managers will be trained and on hand to offer support and check-ins with individuals who may be struggling to navigate the stages of menopause. Training and learning resources are also available on the Belfry Campus, an online platform, accessible at any time by employees, for those who want to research privately.

The resort is offering personalised menopause treatment and support, which will enable staff to discuss symptoms and struggles with a specialised Bupa GP, and identify an appropriate treatment plan. The Belfry will contribute 50% of costs for contracted employees with over a year’s service.

As regular exercise can help to reduce common menopause symptoms, such as weight gain and muscle mass loss, while also relieving stress, free group golf lessons are being offered to employees in a bid to help kickstart their golfing journeys. This is in addition to the existing discounted gym membership available to all Belfry teams.

Kirsten Price, Head of People and Culture at The Belfry commented, “At the heart of our approach is a commitment to people, driving us to revolutionise workplace culture using innovative tools, and providing vital education for our valued team. Recognising that menopause remains a stigmatised topic in the workplace, we are determined to break these barriers. The need for change is clear, and we are proud of the transformative support we've implemented. Together, we break the silence, challenge norms, and pioneer a workplace where everyone thrives”

The Belfry’s contribution towards change on this topic extends beyond their team. Katie Niland, Sales Director recently joined a panel at the miaSummit discussing menopause in the workplace and M&IT’s recent industry research.

For guests, the Spa team has launched new treatments designed to alleviate menopause symptoms, and is offering a series of free fitness classes on World Menopause Day.
