what is

Hybrid Workplace

The hybrid workplace is defined as a business model combining remote work with office work. It may look different among organizations, but it typically includes the onsite presence of a core group, while others are free to come and go as they please, within reason.

Flexible Working

It may be the same employees mandated to be onsite, or it could include a staggering of different people present on different days or times. Or, there may simply be specific days where employees are requested to attend in-person meetings.

The hybrid workplace generally allows employees the opportunity to fit work around their lives, rather than structuring work around fixed hours logged into an office. For many employees (and employers) it’s an optimal balance of productive work with reduced stress and less commuting.

What Does Decision Makers Say:

Frank Christiaens Operating Partner of UpperStage Capital

In 2020 we moved our offices from Gastown to the West Quay Offices in North Vancouver, because we wanted an environment that matched our ambitious company culture better. We are a Lower Middle Market Private Equity fund that invests in profitable impact companies across North America. West Quay offered us the high level of services, meeting facilities, and high quality of offices that people associate with our quality brand. Our staff now enjoy a short boat ride to come to the offices and never have to worry about parking nor their safety again. The location also allows us to quickly go out on team hikes when we want to have a fresh air discussion.

Frans Tjallingii CEO of 7Gen

Our Electric Vehicle startup was working fully remote at the beginning of COVID. We preferred however to find an office where we could have our growing team work out of, while still remaining flexible. Our team helps fleet operators transition their fleet to EV by providing turn key services for the installation of chargers, procurement of vehicles and financing. We needed a professional location with good shared services and we found that in West Quay Offices. It has been a real pleasure with Hussein and his team taking good care of us. We are growing fast and still have room to grow at West Quay. It is a pleasure being here and the location is fantastic. Easily accessible with a good view of the harbour.

Keith Gillard CEO of UpperStage Capitol

West Quay Offices provides our team with an excellent base of operations. We have our own dedicated team office, combined with shared access to plenty of meeting and private call rooms, plus the social space, which is like having our own café right in the office. The proximity to Lonsdale Quay gives us easy accessibility to downtown Vancouver, plus plenty of excellent restaurants for lunch or dinner meetings. The quality and professionalism of West Quay Offices always impresses our visitors.

      So we ask you do do these meetings in your Private Office if you have one OR if you don’t want to do it in there and if you are a Coworking Member, please book our “Small Meeting Room” for this. Small meeting room is very cheap compared to large one and you have many meeting dollars in your account that will expire each month. This way, we can keep everyone happy.

    • Can I make online meetings (Zoom, Teams, etc…) in Single Private Rooms?

      Please, do NOT!

      These rooms designed for single persons to work and focus on what hey are doing. These pods are not sound proof. Any loud noise you will make in there will echo in half of our office.

      The other coworkers and our friendly employees and the Community Manager know their way around and will be happy to help you.

    • Is a coworking space worth it?

      We like to think so. But the truth is each business has their own circumstances where coworking may be a worthwhile investment or not. If you work remotely or are looking for an alternative workspace you may be questioning how your environment affects your productivity. For some, the flexibility to work in sweat pants or do laundry between calls is great, however it has its drawbacks. It may be mundane, and bouncing ideas off your dog might not work. For others in a small to medium-sized team it may be impractical to rent an entire office and fit it out yourself. Luckily we take flexible working at face value and can accommodate customization depending on your preferences — usually. If you’re ready to consider different options for your workspace, a strong possibility could be in West Quay Offices.

    • How do shared office spaces work?

      Think of it like a gym membership. Some people come in once a month while others may come in 7 days a week. No matter what your preference, we have different options to suit your needs. On any given day there will be a seat for you with all the amenities to get the most out of your working day; like super fast wifi, printing, unlimited coffee and front of house services for your guests (to name a few).

    • What are the benefits of collaborative workspaces?

      Many. The overhead costs of a fully equipped office are taken care of, superior fit out with premium desks and chairs for use, flexibility to scale your business up or down, robust health and safety policy and an established company culture.

    • What is the minimum commitment I need to make to join West Quay Offices?

      We believe in flexible working, and that means being flexible ourselves. To support businesses and our vision we do not lock members into any long term leases or contracts. Most memberships are on a month to month basis with a 30 day notice period respectively. Please get in touch to find out more.
