NEW YORK, March 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The BNY Mellon 2017 People Report showcases how more than 50,000 people are powering investment success and improving lives.

BNY Mellon is proud to announce the release of its second-annual People Report, which tells the story of how more than 50,000 of the brightest, most innovative minds in the financial services industry are working together to improve lives through investing.

With the war for talent increasingly waged globally and change in the global financial markets moving at an unprecedented pace, the report showcases how investing in people is paying off for the Investments Company for the World. Leveraging a rich diversity of backgrounds, perspectives, skills and experiences, BNY Mellon's high-performing global team is driving innovation and digital transformation at a 233-year-old investments company.

The report features dozens of BNY Mellon employees and collaborative teams, highlighting efforts and accomplishments realized in the last year. From paving the way for today's ambitious talent to become tomorrow's global leaders and reimagining workspaces to encourage out-of-the-box thinking, to deploying bots that boost productivity and accuracy and leveraging an expansive corporate art collection to inspire fresh perspectives and new ways to think about technology, it's been a remarkable winning journey.

"Our people are truly our greatest asset," said Monique R. Herena, Chief Human Resources Officer and Senior Executive Vice President, BNY Mellon. "The new report illustrates how our people lead, innovate and collaborate to positively impact our company and our clients, and serve as an inspiration to others around the world."
