In addition to examining the range of employee benefits and training programmes, staff at The Bee and 2BR were asked to fill in anonymous questionnaires about their life at work, broken down into 70 different categories.

Managing director Simon Brierley said: “This is an immense achievement for The Bee and 2BR, and east and central Lancashire. We work hard to create a great workplace for our staff as it’s through them that we deliver results for our clients and listeners.” 2BR is the commercial radio station for Burnley, Hyndburn and Pendle and The Bee serves Blackburn, Darwen, Hyndburn, Preston, South Ribble and Chorley.  The stations reach a combined adult audience of 180,000 adults along the M65 corridor.
