The 4:1 ratio: How park sharing at work benefits everyone

By sharing their allocated parks through the Parkable app, staff can let four times as many colleagues access the car park

If your office has its car parks allocated to specific employees, park sharing between staff is a simple and effective way of dispersing staff perks and creating a fairer workplace.

In fact, we did some data analysis and found that through Parkable’s park sharing, allocated parking spots went from being used by just one employee at any time to being used by between two and four different members of staff every month.

  • Parkable enterprise clients Datacom and Aurecon enable staff to share their allocated parks when they don't need them. For both companies, that results in four different employees use each allocated spot every month
  • Similarly, European Motor Distributors has three different members of staff using each allocated car park per month

That means that a company with 100 parking spots can go from allowing just 100 staff to park onsite to allowing between 200 and 400 staff to use the car park! By sharing a major perk far more widely, companies are telling their staff a clear message: we want everyone to benefit.

We also surveyed our clients' staff and found that...

  1. Park sharing between staff can make 75% of bad commutes enjoyable.
  2. Two-thirds of employees think that because of Parkable, parking at work is fairer than it was before.
  3. 89% of people without an allocated parking spot say they’ve had more opportunity to park onsite at the office since the launch of Parkable.
  4. 1 in 3 employees say that park sharing improved their perception of their work culture.
