BNY Mellon Wealth Management Named the Best Place to Work in LA

Top ranking based on confidential employee answers to Los Angeles Business Journal survey

LOS ANGELES, September 8, 2014 — BNY Mellon Wealth Management was named the Best Place to Work in Los Angeles by the LA Business Journal in its 8th annual survey of company employees. The list, broken out by company size, included the 100 most highly rated companies in the metropolitan region.

Regional President Larry Miles accepted the award during the Aug. 19 “Best Places to Work” awards dinner hosted by the LABJ, a leading regional business publication in Los Angeles. At the event, the paper “saluted companies that, according to the people who work for them, are the most successful in business and in nurturing their own,” the LABJ wrote in its published announcement of the awards.

“It’s humbling for us to win this award. In wealth management the real differentiator is people,” Miles said. “Our teammates love what they do. That carries over to their conscientious client service and BNY Mellon Wealth Management’s 97% client retention rate.”

In a profile of BNY Mellon Wealth Management, the LABJ noted that “A quick review of the company’s corporate culture – with its ping pong tournaments, flexible work schedules and Kickball BBQ and holiday parties — and it’s easy to see why employees enjoy working there.” The LABJ description goes on to note BNY Mellon’s tradition of corporate social responsibility and strong community involvement as well.

The survey was administered by Best Companies Group and was made up of two parts. The first was an employer questionnaire about company policies, practices and demographics. Part two of the survey, completed by the employees in strict confidentiality, measured employee engagement and satisfaction. Data from the two parts were then combined and analyzed to determine the strengths of participating companies and ultimately each company’s ranking.

BNY Mellon’s high marks demonstrate a “commitment to the concept that employees’ well-being directly impacts a company’s well-being—in the eyes of the public, its business partners, customers and shareholders,” the LABJ wrote.
