Health and Well-being

At Caterpillar, our success starts with our people. Our focus on health and well-being represents Caterpillar’s commitment to build and sustain a high-performing team. We demonstrate this commitment to our employees and the extended Caterpillar family by offering a wide range of benefits and programs that support their health and well-being.

When our employees are healthy, they perform their best at work, at home and in their communities. Our Total Health strategy focuses on all aspects of well-being, including financial, physical and emotional/social health as well as promoting a sense of purpose.

Major programs include:

  • Monthly U.S. Financial Health webinar series — Covers topics that help our employees budget, save, plan and invest for their futures.
  • Total Health Highlights campaign — Builds awareness and provides education on a variety of well-being topics. Helpful resources are published online and delivered worldwide within the workplace through our “Total Health Champions,” a global network of employee volunteers who share their passion for wellness. This team coordinates programs and events that educate and emphasize the importance of good health.
  • Employee Assistance Program (EAP) — A free, voluntary and completely confidential service provided to employees and their eligible family members to help meet many challenges at home and work. The EAP also aims to engage employees while removing the stigma surrounding mental health by delivering webinars, web content and educational materials on a variety of health emotional/social health topics.
