Over the years, Canadian HR Reporter has tackled the issue of HR outsourcing from many different angles.

On June 4, 2001, we ran an article outlining CIBC’s move to outsource nearly all of its HR operations to EDS in a $227-million deal, resulting in the transfer of 200 CIBC HR personnel to EDS.

On June 2, 2003, we detailed BMO’s signing of a 10-year, $750-million deal with Exult to outsource most of its transactional HR work. We also told the stories of companies such as Rogers, Air Canada, Home Depot and Starbucks that went down similar roads.
