Why does every organisation need a fertility & reproductive health policy?

Currently, the majority of employers in the UK have no formal policies in place to support employees with reproductive health or fertility matters...

For many organisations, workplace reproductive health and fertility support is an entirely new and unknown concept, yet over 3.5 million people in the UK are affected by fertility challenges. For any business to thrive, it must keep up with our ever-evolving society.

Millennials and Gen Z’ers are the next generation of success for employers and 33% of them believe fertility benefits should be offered by employers, so implementing a reproductive health policy is key to attracting and retaining talent.

For many HR professionals, policy writing is second nature. However, drafting a reproductive health policy can be daunting if you do not understand the terminology, implications and tone that needs to be set with such a sensitive and personal topic.
