It’s Time to Put Her Health First

Women often put their responsibilities and the well-being of others ahead of their own health. It’s time to provide more opportunities for every woman to prioritize her health and help to improve worldwide gender parity.

On March 8th, 2022, International Women’s Day, we’ve given all Organon employees paid time off.

This means:

More time to address fundamental health needs.

More opportunity to focus on personal well-being.

More ability to support the health of the women in our lives.

    What do you plan on doing in service of your health or the health of a loved one?
