A new office which features decorative links to Glasgow will be opening in the city this week.
Technology and engineering consultancy BJSS will be based at the office on West George Street from Wednesday.
Despite many businesses choosing to abandon offices in the wake of the pandemic, BJSS has continued to invest in spaces to allow their staff to work, collaborate, and socialise, while also giving new recruits a place to learn and grow.
The new 8,000 square foot facility includes areas for social activities, a multi-purpose event space, super-fast Wi-Fi, and spaces to focus and collaborate.
Laura Casci, head of delivery for BJSS Scotland, said: “Investing in people is BJSS’s number one priority.
“Feedback from our employees is that having an office space to work from is important for their wellbeing.
“People like having a choice, and we believe that by opening an easily accessible and attractive hub in the heart of a great city like Glasgow, we are providing opportunities not just for our current employees, but our future employees too.”
Over the past 18 months, the company has more than doubled its workforce to 150 employees and intends on growing by a further third in the coming year.
Laura added: “It’s not just about growing our team but addressing the wider digital skills gap that exists in Scotland, as well as the rest of the UK.
“We want people to come and work for BJSS, to learn new skills, and to advance their career, whether that be graduates, apprentices, those looking to return to work, or those looking to retrain in a new role.
“Whether they stay with us on with us or take their talents to other organisations in Scotland, it all contributes to the local tech talent ecosystem.”
Karen Meechan, CEO of ScotlandIS, a member organisation for Scotland’s digital technology industry, added: “By investing in top-tier office space in Glasgow, BJSS is highlighting its commitment to growing Scotland’s technology community. By providing a space for people to learn and grow, it is playing a significant role in supporting the wider Scottish digital economy.”
