It depends. If they're in an industry that has applicable cyber regulation then they may absolutely need to do this to maintain compliance.

Thirty days seems a little on the sharp side, but that's all contingent on the laws in the primary operational area for the company.

Also, the general "wisdom" on the security side is that complex passwords that are changed on a regular basis are still a fundamental security practice. The zeitgeist has not shifted on that; though there are a number of increasingly vocal individuals that advocate for a less complex strategy, they don't represent the viewpoint of the community as a whole.

Use KeePass to keep it easy. I just use the "Generate from last" and go.
