BMO outsources HR

Toronto

— BMO Financial Group signed a 10-year $75 million HR administration outsourcing agreement with Canada Exult Inc., last month. Exult will assume responsibility for managing administrative HR services such as payroll and benefits administration, HR call centre management, employee records and other technology-driven administrative functions. The agreement will affect about 250 personnel in Canada and the United States. Most are being offered comparable positions within Exult or in other BMO departments.
