Caterpillar Inc. increased its “flexible workforce” by 9,000 people so far this year, according to the company’s third-quarter earnings announcement.
The flexible workforce includes workers from staffing firms as well as part-time and temporary Caterpillar employees.
The Peoria, Illinois-based equipment-maker also added more than 6,000 full-time employees.
“I am pleased that we have put so many people back to work this year, and with continued global economic growth, we will add people in 2011 but remain keenly focused on cost control,” Caterpillar CEO Doug Oberhelman said in a news release.
“While we are expecting positive economic growth in the United States, the recovery is weaker than we’ve seen historically, particularly given the depth of the 2009 recession.”
