The Amazing Benefit This Company is About to Offer Women


There is a British company that is planning an giving their female employees an amazing benefit soon.

Coexist, an education non-profit, will allow female employees to take time off for their periods, similar to sick days.

Research studies have shown that two per cent of 400 women have ‘severe’ period pain, or dysmenorrhea, while in another study,14 per cent said they were unable to go to work because of it.

It is because of these women that Coexist is planning on implementing the menstrual leave policy.

"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, says Bex Baxter, one of the company's directors.

Despite this, they feel they cannot go home because they do not class themselves as unwell. And this is unfair," she adds. "At Coexist we are very understanding. If someone is in pain—no matter what kind—they are encouraged to go home."

However, she is quick to point out that women do not have to take time off during their periods - it is not mandatory, rather just a helpful option that offers flexibility in work schedules if needed.

Talk about awesome bosses and amazing company benefits.
