Diversity, equity, inclusion & belonging
We believe that belonging is a business imperative.
At Organon, belonging is the core of our diversity, equity, and inclusion. We aspire to be a company where all employees feel they belong so they can be engaged and empowered to share new ideas, diverse perspectives, and be their authentic selves in the workplace.
Organon's Chief Human Resources Officer, Aaron Falcione, and Head of Talent & Diversity, Iris Melendez, reflect on why Organon chose to include belonging as one of our core values.
A sense of belonging
Belonging is a basic human need.
Belonging is when you can find acceptance within a community, without having to change who you are.
When you feel connected to others, especially during painful times, you know that you are not alone.
Belonging improves motivation, happiness, productivity and health. If we believe in health, we must believe in and aspire to belonging.
