Labor was a major target of Caterpillar’s restructuring as the organization deployed almost 38,651 of its staff members within a short span ranging from the year 1979 to 1992. Economic boom was also experienced by the market in 1980s and it took Caterpillar about 20 years to experience that peak level of financial performance. As a result of mature market and decrease in the sales volume, the firm experienced many closures and have lost many of its employees. There was no increase in the government spending especially on infrastructure facilities, so the boom can be attributed to consumers who were responsible for increased demand on the whole. The increased competition majorly from Komstua has contributed to worsen the position of Caterpillar (even after restructuring) and the issues were intensified by unfavorable movements in the dollar – yen exchange rate. All the mentioned factors contributed to motivate the management of the firm to restructure Caterpillar and downsize its number of employees.
It is not reasonable to state that the restructuring resulted in the improved financial performance of Caterpillar as the wage entrants associated with the firm remained at very low level. There was a considerable betterment in the share values and value added of the firm but these did not contribute to improve the position of firm because there was a severely negative impact on the cash and renewal rates.
Outsourcing of those functions also resulted to augment the costs being faced by Caterpillar. The savings which were realized by Caterpillar by deploying its employees were then used to pay the outside companies whose services were hired to perform the duties for which the association deployed its existing staff for. On the whole it can be generalize that Caterpillar’s major restructuring actions were focused on labor deployment with a view to sustain labor costs.
