CPD accreditation for menopause in workplace specialist 

An organisation that specialises in menopause training in the workplace has had its courses accredited by the independent pioneer of quality standards, the CPD Certification Service.

It elevates the credentials of Henpicked: Menopause in the Workplace, which last year delivered its training to over 1000 organisations and over 1 million employees via a series of workshops across the country, both online and face-to-face.

Founder Deborah Garlick says: “I am delighted that we are now CPD accredited as it reinforces the message of quality that we are renowned for. Prior to Lockdown, the vast majority of our training sessions were in person and when the lockdown started, all of our sessions at employers’ workplaces were postponed, waiting for news.

“However, we were ready to scale-up and then roll out our online training solutions very swiftly. Clearly this situation is going on for longer than many anticipated and forward-thinking employers who care about their colleagues’ wellbeing have been in touch regularly about our digital offering including webinars, videos and eLearning.

“To us, that’s important and fantastic to hear. Creating an inclusive culture where everyone can be at their best, and know their employer cares is more crucial than ever. There is the risk of disconnection during periods of furlough or working from home, a lack of regular social contact and poor management and leadership.

“Being furloughed can make people worried about the return to work and living with COVID-19. Meanwhile, others continuing to work at home may have more time available to participate in training. Now we can ensure that all employees can develop their skills and invest in things that matter to them and their wellbeing.

“The Henpicked team have been wonderful in driving this forward together and our first webinar during the Lockdown period was fully booked within 24 hours, with over 100 people and a waiting list, so we had to re-run it. Meanwhile, it is just great to see these organisations are giving their employees access to high quality training and resources, so even if they are out of sight in the physical workplace they are certainly not out of mind.”

Help us maintain our standards of journalism

Readers across the region enjoy our news site but keeping our news up to date and authoritative, without charging readers to view the site is a challenge. Especially now with the Corona Virus measures affecting us all, as many clients have been severely affected and are naturally reducing their spend on advertisements. Given this lack of revenue stream we are calling on the generosity of our readers to help us fill that void and enable our journalists to continue delivering the news that you enjoy.

Unlike many other news sites, we don't have annoying pop ups or charge scandalous prices for events. We also produce printed magazines for each title and we make these freely available to read on line too, for your enjoyment. Often, people have asked why we don't make a charge for viewers to read these magazines and news stories but we feel that would adversely affect our readership/advertisers response rate. But with advertising revenues now severely affected we need your help. So, if you can support our news sites/magazines with either a small donation of even £1, or a subscription to our magazine, which costs from just £33.60 per year, (inc p&P and mailed direct to your door) your generosity will help us weather the current storm and continue in our quest to deliver quality journalism.

We value your readership and your support, as this enables us to continue to provide our regular daily news updates. We've been established over 30 years, during which we've lost count of the numerous recessions and financial meltdowns, and we intend to weather the storms caused by Covid-19. So, every reader contribution, however big or small, is invaluable in helping us to get through this. Please click here to help support your favourite news site/magazine.
