In 2020, workplaces everywhere learned the perks of working from home. As many employers plan to make flexwork a permanent feature of their offices, the need for a flexible hybrid commute program has never been greater.
Consider this — as employees return to in-person work, their concerns for health and safety will drive them to — you guessed it, drive. More single-occupancy vehicles leads to more parking demand.
Employers can reduce this demand and maximize use of space with incentives and disincentives. Bonuses for employees who carpool, bike to work, or skip the morning commute and work from home, eases the strain on parking facilities, while daily commuters have peace of mind in reserving a spot at work.
A workplace that combines policy and technology to promote sustainable commute choices can face uncertainty with confidence.
