Dealing with parking spots in our company

Parking issues in a dynamic city like Prishtina sometimes affect both the management and employee side of a business. Limited parking spots are the most common problems that companies face. 

For example, at Kutia we only have 7 parking spots and the morning routine gets a little competitive! 

That’s why we gathered to talk about this issue and discuss different options we might use in order to overcome this daily challenge. All team members proposed different solutions. Rather than some technical changes we mentioned, we agreed that there should be some behavioral changes in this case. 

We decided that 3 are the most effective solutions for this problem:

  1. Carpooling

This means both cost savings and social benefits of sharing rides. Having fewer cars on the road means reduced Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and improved air quality. Carpooling offers a win-win-win proposition for people, the planet, and your pocketbook. Also, this routine helps to strengthen personal and professional networks between team members.

  1. Company bus

Come up with a map of all employee’s addresses and have a shared bus only for our company’s team members. Decide the route start and finish point. Besides the parking solution, this eliminates the traffic stress in the morning for all drivers. The route from home to work would be a reflection time:).

  1. Differentiation

Analyze where every team member lives and make a list of people who live far away and have difficulties coming to work without their car. Differentiate them from team members who live nearby and create a solution for both parties.
