Kellogg's offering fertility, miscarriage, and menopause leave

Submitted to What's On Your Mind?

BBC News has reported that cereal manufacturer Kellogg's recently announced it will provide more support to staff experiencing menopause, pregnancy loss or fertility treatment.

The firm said about 1,500 workers at its factories in Trafford and Wrexham and its Salford headquarters would benefit from a number of new measures.

They include extra paid leave for those undergoing fertility treatment or staff who suffer the loss of a pregnancy.

The firm's Europe vice-president in human resources Sam Thomas-Berry said it was "launching several new workplace policies for even better equity and inclusion".

"Many people experience these issues, and the impact can be both physical and mental, but they aren't discussed widely in the workplace," she said.

"We want to create a culture where people feel psychologically safe, so we'll encourage colleagues to be allies to others impacted by these issues."
