Why periods shouldn't be a taboo subject at work

There are several things that are shamefully still major challenges that employers must contend with such as mental health, bullying and harassment. All of which are things that may not be visible on the surface, but are all very real issues affecting employees across the UK.

One such subject that is still seen as a taboo for many are periods; according to a survey of 2,000 menstruators, almost half (46%) shared that there is still a noticeable stigma around the issue within the organisation they work for.
