Have you ever heard of the saying “Empower a woman, and you empower a nation”?
It’s true, and we believe in it at ChainCode Consulting LLP! That’s why we are beyond excited to announce our newest policy – SheCare!
SheCare, introduced by ChainCode Consulting LLP, is a new leave policy designed to support and empower women in the workplace. It recognizes that menstruation is a natural process and provides female employees with the support they need to prioritize their health and well-being.
This leave will be based on need basis and no questions will be asked for the reason, as we are compassionate about the requirement of the same. This policy provides 12 extra leaves per calendar year and is not just a benefit but a crucial step towards addressing the pervasive gender inequalities that exist in society. SheCare has received widespread support from experts and advocates of women’s health.
“This empowering policy is a very crucial, extremely significant, and a highly warranted step forward in recognizing and addressing the unique needs of women in the workplace.” – Alok Gupta, Founder & CEO, ChainCode Consulting LLP
The societal stigma and lack of understanding around menstruation have led to women facing challenges in their personal and professional lives. Menstrual health is often ignored or brushed under the carpet, leaving women feeling isolated and unsupported. SheCare is a powerful statement that values and prioritizes the health and well-being of women. It is a policy that recognizes the unique health needs of women and provides them with the support they need to prioritize their physical and emotional well-being.
The availability of a menstrual leave policy helps create a work culture that is supportive and inclusive of women’s health needs. It is essential to recognize the barriers that women face in accessing healthcare and to promote an open dialogue around menstruation. The introduction of SheCare is a step towards changing the narrative around periods and empowering women. The response to SheCare has been overwhelmingly positive, with all our team members applauding and understanding the necessity of this initiative as a step towards gender equality.
“By prioritizing women’s health needs, companies like us are contributing to creating a society where women feel supported, valued, and respected. Women should not have to choose between their work and their health. Menstruation is a natural and essential process, and women should have the support they need to manage it without fear of judgement or discrimination.” – Vandini Gupta, Director, ChainCode Consulting LLP
Menstrual leave policies are not new, and several countries have already implemented them.
However, in India, where the majority of the population still lives in patriarchal societies, menstruation remains a taboo topic. Women are often expected to carry on with their daily lives without any regard for their physical and emotional health. The introduction of SheCare by ChainCode Consulting is a positive step towards creating a more equitable and just society for women. SheCare is a policy that recognizes the difficulties that women face during their menstrual cycle. It provides female employees with the opportunity to take time off to focus on their well-being.
The initiative of SheCare is a reflection of our values of inclusivity, empathy, and care as a progressive organization. This policy acknowledges that menstruation is a natural process and provides female employees with the support they need to prioritize their health and well-being. By putting women’s health needs first, we are contributing to creating a society where women feel supported, valued, and respected.
SheCare is not just a policy but a movement towards creating a more equitable and just society for women. It is a call to action for companies to prioritize women’s health needs and create a culture that is supportive and inclusive. Menstrual leave policies are just one step towards addressing gender inequalities, but they are an essential step.” – Neha Upadhyay, Asst. Manager – Human Resources, ChainCode Consulting LLP
SheCare sends a strong message that periods are not a taboo topic and that women’s health is a priority. It also helps reduce the shame and embarrassment that women often feel while taking time off during their menstrual cycle.
We are very proud to be one amongst the handful of organizations in India, taking the progressive lead in supporting women’s health needs through policies like SheCare,and perhaps the first one to implement this as a corporate operational policy in the Chandigarh tri city region.
It is time for other companies to follow suit and prioritize the health and well-being of their female employees. Let us all work towards creating a world where women’s health needs are prioritized and where menstruation is no longer a taboo topic. Together, we can break the silence around periods and create a culture that is supportive, inclusive, and empowering for women.
