Fertility health is an issue well worth championing in the workplace, helping employees realise their aspirations to have a family.
One in six couples in Australia of child-rearing years are known to experience fertility issues. As people tend to start their families later in life, along with more diverse family arrangements, that’s likely to mean several people in any sizeable workplace are experiencing this major life issue. At work, this is currently a health issue that is invisible and misunderstood. Thankfully, it is often treatable, and there are very practical things employers can do.
Fertility preservation in the form of elective egg freezing is also now a popular option for individuals and couples wishing to delay their family-building plans to focus on their careers, studies or other important goals. With the age of female eggs being a top determining factor of female fertility, fertility preservation can help your employees take charge of their reproductive future while knowing their eggs are safely preserved and stored for when the time is right.
Internationally, employer support for fertility health and fertility treatment has been found to contribute to more equitable, engaged and productive workplaces.1
