On World Menopause Day we are excited to announce the launch of our SARSAS Menstruation policy

At SARSAS we are committed to supporting people on our team who experience symptoms of menstruation, menopause or perimenopause.

No one should be disadvantaged in the workplace due to menstruation, menopause or perimenopause but research shows the majority of women don’t feel able to talk to their employers to get the adjustments that they need.

We want to make sure women’s health isn’t a taboo. We want everyone to understand what menstruation, menopause and perimenopause is, and to be able to talk about it openly, without embarrassment.

We want our team to know that if they are being adversely impacted by menstruation, menopause or perimenopause symptoms, that we care.  We will put measures in place to help such as flexible leave and work times and other practical ideas for example, frequent toilet breaks, moving closer to a window, or personal desk fans.

We believe that this is essential for creating an inclusive and caring workplace.
