On World Menopause Day, the global leader with a major office in Darlington joins over 2,500 employers who have signed the Wellbeing of Women Menopause Workplace Pledge. Employees are provided with a toolkit and instructions on how they can support themselves or their colleagues during the menopause.
At Cummins, initiatives supported by the Menopause Workplace Pledge include flexible work schedules, increased availability of temperature checks and easy access to hygiene products. Cummins will also provide additional support through its Women’s Empowerment Network resource.
Craig Thomas, managing director of Cummins Engine Company, Darlington, said: “Educating ourselves and others about the impact of menopause on women’s health and wellbeing is a crucial step for employers to ensure women are fully supported and empowered in the workplace become.”
“It’s time to break the silence and stigma around menopause in all areas of our lives, including work. Signing this commitment is also an important part of our broader business goal of making Cummins as inclusive as possible for all employees.”
The Menopause Workplace Pledge is organized by Wellbeing for Women, a charity that aims to save and transform the lives of women, girls and babies.
