TEC Becomes the 1st Asia-Pacific Workspace Provider to Offer Complimentary Period Care

With women constituting 47% of the global workforce, menstrual health is not just a personal issue—it's a workplace imperative. As pioneers of change, TEC Taiwan is partnering with LUÜNA to promote inclusivity and redefine the support system for women in the workplace.

Despite being a natural occurrence experienced by nearly half of the global workforce, menstruation remains shrouded in stigma and taboo, especially within professional settings. A startling statistic reveals that 98% of women have experienced the anxiety of unexpected periods at work—a reality that impacts productivity, mental well-being, and overall job satisfaction. Yet, discussions about menstruation remain largely relegated to private spaces, leading to a lack of awareness and tangible support in corporate environments. This leaves women to navigate menstrual health challenges discreetly, facing logistical hurdles and emotional strain.

TEC Taiwan x LUÜNA

In a transformative move towards fostering a more caring and inclusive workplace, TEC is thrilled to partner with LUÜNA to introduce complimentary planet-friendly period products across all our Taiwan Centres. This initiative marks a significant milestone as TEC becomes the first Asia-Pacific workspace provider to integrate menstrual care as part of our workplace amenities.


LUÜNA is a woman-led social enterprise committed to creating a more equitable world through sustainable menstrual products. As a B Corp-certified company, LUÜNA upholds the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability in balancing profit and purpose.

Why This Matters

The importance of accessible period care in the workplace transcends mere convenience. By openly acknowledging and supporting menstrual health, we challenge outdated societal norms and advocate for gender equality in a tangible way. This initiative marks a significant departure from the norm, where discussions about periods were often whispered or ignored altogether.

The statistics underscore the urgency of the situation:

  • 75% of women have faced menstrual shame in the workplace.
  • 78% of women have experienced stress due to the lack of feminine hygiene products at the office.
  • 90% of women have had to resort to using toilet paper as a makeshift pad while working.

Addressing these challenges through comprehensive menstrual care fosters open dialogue, reduces stigma, and cultivates a culture of empathy within the workplace, promoting a more supportive and productive environment for all. Recognising and accommodating diverse needs in the workplace sends a strong message of inclusivity, conveying to employees that their well-being matters—irrespective of gender—and that reproductive health should not be a barrier to success or personal fulfilment.

Research reinforces the positive correlation between health support and workplace productivity—employees who feel supported in managing their health experience higher levels of job satisfaction and efficiency. Moreover, offering such support is key to attracting and retaining top talent, with 83% of Gen Z candidates prioritising a company's commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion in their job search.

By offering this benefit to our Member companies, they can extend the same support to their employees, creating a ripple effect of enhanced inclusivity, well-being, and productivity throughout their organisations. Not only does this assist individual employees, but it also fortifies the fabric of workplace culture, amplifying organisational performance and success.


By spearheading this transformative initiative, TEC reaffirms its commitment to creating a workplace where everyone feels supported, setting a new standard for workplace well-being and gender equality. This partnership not only embraces and celebrates menstrual care as a fundamental aspect of workplace wellness but also paves the way for a more equitable and compassionate corporate landscape.

At TEC, everyone's well-being matters—period.
