Vertices Partners Announces Period Leave Each Month for team she vertices. Becomes one of the few startups in the country to adopt the policy

23 July 2021: Vertices Partners officially announced Period Leave for team she vertices. This leave is a one-day provision and will be available each month to all women – legal as well as non-legal, of the Vertices Family over and above the regular leaves and holidays that the Firm offers to all its colleagues. It will be on the sole discretion of the women’s decision as to which specific day they want to avail it. 

The announcement comes in the middle of their women’s health-oriented initiative MenstruationMatters, a three-month-long program that engages the women of the Firm in a transformative program to enable them to better manage their menstrual health. The Firm marked its five-year competition in April earlier this year and in the next stage of its growth, it is set to roll out a number of initiatives centered around its human capital. 

Speaking on the announcement, Archana Khosla Burman, Founder Partner, Vertices Partners, said, “Wellbeing of our Human Capital has always been at the forefront of all our policies and actions at the Firm. While it is true that period cramps are not normal and with better menstrual health management, we can do away or at least minimize the pain we experience, the truth is that until that becomes a reality, innumerable women suffer from at least one day of terrible discomfort, PMS syndrome and period cramps that makes it difficult for them to go about their routine. There is a fundamental need to recognize that everyone’s health needs are different, and it is about time we do something that will create an actual difference in the way we approach health.”

“Given one of the worst health crises that the humanity has faced, the biggest lesson is for everyone to imbibe the value of healthy living. As a Firm, we believe in fundamental initiatives and policies that truly make a difference in the lives of our colleagues." said Vinayak Burman, Founder & Managing Partner, Vertices Partners

“The need to recognize that substantial human capital related initiatives have to be fundamental and make a real difference in the lives of our colleagues is what we as a Firm believe in. It’s often perplexing to think that menstrual health is something that women have lived with since time immemorial and we are only beginning to scratch the surface of menstrual health management.” added Gauri Poswal, Chief Strategy Officer, Vertices Partners
