Boots has become the first health and beauty retailer to achieve an independent accreditation from Menopause Friendly Accreditation’s Independent Panel.

This accreditation recognises the work Boots, Boots Opticians and No7 Beauty Company are doing to create a workplace culture where women can feel empowered to talk about the menopause transition.

Boots has over 51,000 team members across the UK, 27% of which are over 50 and made up of 80% women.

Boots alongside Boots Opticians and No7 Beauty Company has also become the first health and beauty retailer to achieve the Age Inclusive accreditation from the age diversity organisation, 55/Redefined.

With a recent 55/Redefined study showing that 56% of over-50s want to continue working beyond 65, Boots is committed to playing a leading role in changing attitudes and challenging age discrimination.

“This is a continuation of our long-standing commitment to our team members and our customers at all stages of life,” Boots HR Director, Ben Horner said.

“I know there is much more for us to do to continue to promote a culture where we can talk openly about the menopause and its symptoms.”
