BMO’s talent strategy
Meeting the high expectations of our customers and other stakeholders requires the best people. That’s why BMO has developed strategies to identify and develop emerging leaders.
In 2011, we launched the Talent Advisory Network to bring new focus to our employee coaching, development planning and retention. Our Talent Advisory Network is part of BMO’s overall talent strategy, which has four key priorities:
- Talent mindset and accountability: We’re taking the necessary steps to ensure the entire organization has access to strong future leaders. We’re also making our current leaders at every level more accountable for attracting, developing and retaining good talent.
- Talent assessment: Our BMO leaders think holistically about coaching and developing their team members. We’ve developed effective methods that gauge our needs for skills and experience throughout the organization – and this ensures we place the right people in the right roles.
- Career management practice: We’re encouraging leaders to have candid conversations with their employees to better align their individual career goals with our succession plans.
- Diversity and inclusion: At BMO, we’re committed to workforce diversity and workplace inclusion. We align this commitment with our business strategy to enable our employees to better serve our customers.
Work and life balance
BMO has long been recognized for creating an equitable and flexible workplace. We know that to attract and retain top talent, we need to offer flexible work arrangements and programs that assist in accommodating the needs of employees at different life stages. As an employer of choice, we offer a broad range of programs designed to help employees balance their responsibilities to work, family and community.
