Insufficient Number of Parking Spaces

It wasn’t too long ago when it was common that households shared one vehicle. Nowadays, this is not the case. Most households in America have 2 or more cars and it’s rather common that each member of a household has their own car.

WHILE THERE ARE PLENTY OF ADVANTAGES TO OWNING YOUR OWN VEHICLE, ONE THING ALL CAR OWNERS CAN AGREE ON IS HOW STRESSFUL THE MORNING COMMUTE TO WORK CAN BE WHEN THERE ISN’T ENOUGH PARKING.

Across North America, it was typically standard  for employers to have allocated parking for its employees. However, with the influx of vehicles on the road and a preference to drive into the office, there simply isn’t enough parking to go around.

With a hybrid work-model being embraced by many companies, setting up a rotating schedule of when certain employees come in would ensure the best use of the available parking spaces. Take our previous example – if there are 500 employees and 250 parking spaces, you can stagger the workforce attendance schedule so that 250 come in on Monday and Tuesday while the other 250 come in on Wednesday and Thursday!
