The company, which is Scottish Small/Medium Recruitment Agency of The Year, thoughtfully renovated its new Aberdeen HQ, which was once home to women’s health and obstetrics legend Sir Dugald Baird and his wife Lady May Baird.
The project was handled – from conception to delivery – by Aberdeen-based Space Solutions, the country’s leading specialist in workplace planning and delivering modern, productive offices.
Derek Tough, the Space Solutions project manager for the contract, said: “This is a new chapter in the building’s history. We are delighted to have ensured a smooth and painless delivery for the staff at Thorpe Molloy.”
Sir Dugald Baird was a champion of midwifery, family planning and women’s health through the first half of the 20th century, starting out his career delivering babies in Glasgow’s notorious slums.
Karen Molloy, a director at Thorpe Molloy, said staff were delighted with the results and added: “Our new office has strengthened our reputation and further differentiates us as a recruitment agency of choice and an employer of choice.”
“Moving to larger premises was a significant change for the team because we now work over three storeys, rather than on one floor as we did in our previous office.
“Asking for input to the building and working environment was an invaluable exercise which generated fresh ideas. It also acted as a great team building exercise and demonstrated how seriously we take our employees’ ideas.
“Space Solutions then came on board to help implement several employee ideas but unfortunately for the staff, requests such as having a Nintendo Wii haven’t been implemented!”
