1 in 6 of us worldwide are currently experiencing fertility problems, and many of us are in employment.
The issue of fertility health is sadly neglected in the UK – even though most people consider having children as the most important decision of their lives. Infertility is recognised by the World Health organisation as a disease of the reproductive system and should be handled at work in the same way as any other health condition, however it is often considered to be a non-medical condition and even a 'life-style choice'.
Our Mission is to educate and support companies in understanding the impact of fertility issues and treatment on both companies and employees alike. We believe that supporting employees on this journey, can provide a company with improved productivity and retention at work, and more importantly ensure the wellbeing of their staff.
Our Fertility in the Workplace initiative can help you to implement a fertility policy and ensure your staff and managers understand the impact of fertility and treatment so they can support those around them. As the leading national fertility charity, we provide a unique service bringing our experience and expertise in the field, as well as offering our ongoing support package to employees to ensure that no one experiencing fertility problems ever needs to feel alone.
