Today at Kara5, we're excited to announce our new Menstrual Leave Policy - a significant step toward building a work environment that values and empowers everyone.
We believe that a truly inclusive workplace is one where everyone feels valued, supported, and understood. We recognize that the needs and experiences of our diverse workforce vary, and it is our responsibility to create an environment that accommodates all our employees’ needs.
We acknowledge that men and women have different biological realities, and it is our obligation as an organization to accommodate these needs while maintaining high standards of work and productivity. The policy aims to address the unique challenges women face during menstruation, ensuring they can prioritize their health and well-being without stigma or discomfort.
Under this policy, women at Kara5 will have the opportunity to take up to 12 paid days per year for menstrual-related discomfort.
By offering dedicated leave for this purpose, we aim to support our employees' overall welfare and enhance job satisfaction. One of our primary goals in implementing this policy is to challenge the existing stigmas surrounding women's health and promote open and honest conversations. By creating a culture of acceptance and understanding, we hope to foster an environment where everyone can thrive.
Vojdan Karapetkovski, Kara5’s CEO, states: “We understand that being a leader means setting an example for others to follow. We are proud to be at the forefront of change, and we hope this will inspire other companies to prioritize employee well-being and adopt similar initiatives.”
Together, we can challenge societal norms, break down barriers, and create a brighter, more inclusive future. We are committed to standing up for our employees and fostering an environment where diversity is not just embraced but celebrated.
Inclusivity is not just a goal, it is the foundation upon which we build a stronger, more united company. Let's continue championing inclusivity and inspiring positive change in our workplace!
