Access online tools and information through Dow’s Wellbeing Portal

Dow’s Wellbeing Portal provides access to resources to help you feel your best ― physically, emotionally, socially and financially. You'll find mental and behavioral health tools and information you can take advantage of based on your interests and preferences.

Take care of yourself

Serious stress, loss or experiencing a traumatic event can impact your overall health and wellbeing. Taking care of yourself physically ― including seeing your doctor, addressing any health concerns and taking time away from work ― can boost your emotional health as well.

See your doctor regularly

Getting your annual physical is the best way to see where things are going well, and where you may need some help to prevent bigger problems from developing. Plus, your doctor is familiar with your personal history and can make recommendations as soon as symptoms start emerging. Remember to consider your options for care and take preventive actions throughout the year.

Take time to unwind

Taking time off work can leave you feeling renewed, putting you in a better position to handle life’s stressors. Dow offers a generous vacation program that gives you the time and flexibility you need to take time away from work to pursue your interests, care for your family and relax (learn more in the HR Knowledge Base on the Dow internal network). You can view your Time & Absence information through the My HR Portal. Also, Dow recognizes there are times you may need additional time off, offering leave policies for a number of situations.
