The Future of Office Parking

A new report highlights the impact of Covid-19 on the future of office parking.

As companies grapple with how to manage their office space post-COVID, over a quarter of businesses are actively in the process of reducing their employee car parks according to the The State of Employee Parking 2021 study from parking management software firm, ParkOffice.io which polled 105 corporate leaders who manage employee parking across 15 countries.

Of businesses surveyed, 7.3 per cent are aiming for a large reduction in employee parking. Whilst 19.5 per cent of employers are looking to implement small reductions. Interestingly, it’s not all one way traffic, many companies are expecting parking demand to spike when employees return to the office with 15.9 per cent of companies looking to increase their parking allocation. Other interesting takeaways from the research include:

  • 30% of companies believe that employee parking will be considerably harder to manage when employees return to the office due to increased flexibility.
  • 47% of employers identify employee parking as a problematic issue for their business. It is particularly challenging for companies with over 1,000 employees.
  • 57.5% of businesses are more conscious of the negative impact of employee parking on the environment than they were 5 years ago.

ParkOffice.io’s Daithí de Buitléir, explains: “COVID has been a real watershed moment for employee parking.

“Employees don’t want to return to the commuter chaos which used to dominate their lives. For lifestyle, cost and environmental reasons, we are going to see companies aggressively downsize their parking lots over the next few years.”

ParkOffice.io‘s parking management software is used by many of the world’s leading employers including Sanofi, Indeed and L’Oreal, with the company helping to support the reduction of employee parking by providing companies with the software, integrations, data and insights they need to tackle commuter chaos.
