Company introduces a "period policy" for female employees



The British company Coexist in Bristol, introduces a "period policy" for the female staff. No more working for women with a period in companies plan to create a happier and healthier working environment according to Bristol Post

The company has a largely female workforce and wants to acknowledge the monthly trauma many women experience.

Bex Baxter, one of the directors at Coexist, said: "I have managed many female members of staff over the years and I have seen women at work who are bent over double because of the pain caused by their periods. Despite this, they feel they cannot go home because they do not class themselves as unwell. And this is unfair. At Coexist we are very understanding. If someone is in pain - no matter what kind - they are encouraged to go home.
