Gurugram, 13th March 2023: Zupee, one of the fastest growing online skill-based gaming platforms in India, today announced the introduction of a new policy that grants female employees a paid leave during their menstrual cycle. The period leave policy can be availed every month, with one leave per month, whether working from the office or home. In an effort to combat the long-standing stigma around menstruation, the new policy is a step further to building a healthy and comfortable working environment for its female employees.
Zupee is the first skill based online gaming platform to recognize the need for such a progressive initiative with the policy going into effect from April 1, 2023.
Speaking on the announcement, Ms. Surabhi Sanchita, Vice President, Human Resources at Zupee, said, “By implementing this policy, Zupee is not only acknowledging and safeguarding female colleague’s health, but also, raising awareness to avoid menstrual stigmatization. We believe that this policy will enable our female colleagues to better manage their health and strike a balance between personal and professional life.”
