Our people are the heartbeat behind the success of our products and services. Our focus on health and well-being represents Caterpillar’s commitment to building and sustaining a high-performing team by giving employees and their families the incentives, programs and social support needed to thrive.
We believe health is achieved by focusing on all aspects of well-being, including emotional, financial and physical health. We call this “Total Health,” and engage our employees through our Total Health Champions network. Total Health Champions are employee volunteers who passionately believe in the value of well-being. They function at a local level to help educate employees about the importance of good health and coordinate meaningful programs and events. They also motivate coworkers to learn about their unique health needs, take action, and effectively use the benefits available to them.
Our commitment to health and well-being not only includes our employees, but also their families. We offer a variety of benefits to both our full- and part-time global workforce that extends to employees’ spouses, same-sex domestic partners and dependents. Some of these benefits include:
- Healthcare coverage including medical, prescription drug, dental, vision and preventative exams and testing
- Parental and adoption leave and infertility benefits
- Life and disability insurance
- Retirement savings plans
- Time-off benefits, including vacation, holiday and paid volunteer time
- Additional voluntary benefits, such as accident insurance, legal services and identify theft
2020 Expanded Well-Being Offerings
We provided new digital and mobile Employee Assistance Program (EAP) services and added 100% coverage on telehealth services during challenging times.
Throughout the pandemic, our Mental Health First Responder program empowered employees to support one another’s mental health at work and our “Building Resilience” campaign assisted employees adapting to changes in their lives at home and work.
