❗Severe Joint Pain
❗Lack of Sleep
❗Pins and Needles
These are just SOME of the symptoms our colleagues are experiencing right now. Not nice, huh?
So, what can we do to support our colleagues, family, and friends?
✔️ Be open, talk about it. All women will go through this at some stage in their life and we spend most of our time at work.
✔️ Review your company policy just as we did and ask yourself are we REALLY supporting our staff?
✔️ Create awareness and let’s knock this subject on the head as being taboo! Talk to the people around you.
✔️ ask, "Are you ok?” this goes a long way…
✔️ Don’t make fun of it.
