Webinar Series – Reproductive Health in the Workplace

Starts at: 25/04/2024 12:30 am - Duration: 1 hour(s)

Online via MS Teams

Why Fertility in the Workplace matters to your organisation and how you can support changes to attract, retain and support employees.

How to book:

Fertility issues affect 1 in 6 people, all of whom are of working age, and yet this subject is often not talked about or recognised in the workplace.

Infertility is a recognised medical condition by the World Health Organisation and yet research shows that many employees are reluctant to tell their managers that they are undergoing fertility tests, investigations, or treatments for fear of discrimination in the workplace. This can lead to loss of working days as a result of stress, anxiety or employees taking sick leave, where they do not feel comfortable being honest about the reason they need time off.

Fertility Network UK is the UKs leading fertility charity, providing free and impartial support and information to anyone affected by fertility issues. Their Fertility in the Workplace (FiTW) initiative provides support packages to employers to become better educated on what the impact is of this condition on those affected and how this relates to their working life.

Currently FiTW can offer free support packages to SMEs, thanks to funding from the Department of Health, so we would encourage all organisations to take up this offer while it’s available, and for all organisations to learn more about fertility, how it can impact on your workplace, why it matters and how you can help.

This is an open webinar to anyone interested in wellbeing at work and how to support reproductive health at work.
