Work That Matters

Our employees are the backbone of Caterpillar’s success. They provide the innovative and diverse thinking we need to serve our customers. We are committed to fostering a diverse, inclusive and safe environment where all employees can not only be successful, but also are actively encouraged to share their ideas. By leveraging each individual’s skills, abilities, experiences and cultural background, Caterpillar people can achieve superior business and personal results.

As a company with hundreds of global locations that serve diverse industries such as transportation, construction, oil and gas, mining, marine and forestry, we are in a unique position to offer training and development opportunities for all employees. This includes learning both inside and outside of Caterpillar, targeted leadership development, and building functional and market capabilities. We support a continuous learning environment and recognize the importance of multi-faceted experiences through a variety of formal and informal solutions for employees to grow skills, knowledge and capabilities.

Our formal leadership development programs provide high-potential leaders an opportunity for global exposure in diverse markets and go beyond classroom learning through participation in projects that address critical business challenges. We foster informal learning for all employees through technology-enabled systems that offer ease of access and enterprise collaboration.

Empowering Women to Lead

Inclusion drives business results, and Caterpillar knows that when it focuses on having the best talent – including a more gender-balanced workforce – everyone benefits. The more diverse our global team, the better positioned we are to meet the needs of our customers. Our Women in Leadership initiative is an intentional, focused step on a continuous journey toward a globally diverse team, helping us meet our aspirational goals of 29 percent female employees and 25 percent female leaders by 2022.
