Carlisle -based HR firm, Realise, continues to build on its successful series of Hive Mind events this October and reiterates its support for women in the menopause.

Hive Mind was launched earlier this year as a community learning exchange for the HR industry, providing a safe and collaborative space for People specialists to share ideas, learn and innovate with a likeminded peer group.

Now with over 40 member businesses, Hive Mind is gearing up for its next event in October to coincide with World Menopause Month, focused on encouraging menopause awareness and support within the workplace.
