Our employees are encouraged to explore opportunities, pursue their interests and enjoy many fulfilling careers. We make this investment in employee development to help our business meet its ever-changing needs. Through continual learning, our employees will help us innovate and drive business results.
Beginning with onboarding and with each assignment, our employees have access to robust learning and development resources. Many of our employees enjoy multiple career opportunities within our businesses, and we credit the hands-on learning opportunities we provide as well as our focus on development and career planning.
As the pandemic continued for a second year, on-demand and virtual learning became central to our menu of courses. We are regularly expanding the options on critical topics — ranging from safety to lean to leadership — so employees can access their desired training whenever and wherever they need it. We also continue to offer our production employees access to certification programs, ongoing learning and career development opportunities.
In addition to online learning, Caterpillar offers development opportunities for employees to lead challenging projects, take on stretch assignments, serve on committees, join Employee Resources Groups, work with mentors and job shadow others — all aimed at fostering collaboration and learning. With a business case for investment and their manager’s sponsorship, hundreds of employees each year deepen their knowledge, pursue new career paths and add to their credentials by taking advantage of our tuition assistance program, which covers most of their expenses for tuition, fees and books.
Through deliberate succession planning, we identify and prepare leaders for new opportunities across the company. Intentional development planning helps our employees identify and work on the skills they need now and in the future.
