July 22, 2015 – Toronto – Morneau Shepell, a leading North American provider of human resources consulting and technology, today announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire the U.S. health and welfare benefits administration business of Ceridian. The transaction is expected to close on July 31, 2015.
More than 100 highly experienced benefits administration professionals from Ceridian will join Morneau Shepell. Sixty-five Ceridian clients, ranging from small businesses with several hundred employees to businesses with very large employee bases, will see their services continued uninterrupted under the Morneau Shepell banner.
“This transaction supports Morneau Shepell’s ongoing commitment to invest in and grow its business in the U.S.,” said René Beaudoin, Executive Vice-President, U.S. Region, and Chief Technology Officer, Morneau Shepell. “While stand-alone health and welfare administration is no longer a strategic focus for Ceridian, it is one of Morneau Shepell’s core businesses. This deal will enhance Morneau Shepell’s ability to compete against large U.S. competitors and to service organizations of all sizes across North America.”
Beaudoin added, “We are enthusiastic about welcoming more than 100 new talented employees to the Morneau Shepell family in the U.S., and look forward to serving our new customers. Not only will the addition of these highly-capable Ceridian team members enhance Morneau Shepell’s service offering and garner attention for our brand, but it will also mean our employees are part of an increasingly competitive provider of health and benefits plan administration and retirement solutions.”
