The award is presented to companies demonstrating best practice in HR and scores are based on pay and benefits, training and development, career development, working conditions and company culture.

RLB, which employs 340 staff at its seven UK offices, was awarded the maximum five stars in all five of the categories.

Earlier this month the firm was ranked in The Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For survey for the third consecutive year.

Hilary Richardson, HR manager, said: “This is an excellent achievement and we are immensely proud to be recognised as Britain’s Top Employer for the second consecutive year.

“The construction industry has experienced challenging times so to be ranked as the best employer in the UK is testament to the dedication of our highly-skilled, talented and motivated workforce.”
