Limited Employee Parking: Business Research Part 3

Introduction

Becoming a daily driver in NYC is considered a luxury even for employers because there is a mass amount of public transportation including taxi and livery cab services to transport everyone to and from work. The population is over crowded with millions of citizens and not enough room to park vehicles on the street or inside public garages in specific areas. Unless you work for a major corporation that owns a large amount of property to build parking, you must take public transportation to and from work. It is impossible to avoid a double-parked fine of $120.00 or a tow resulting in $250.00 for occupying a no parking zone. Drivers lose their vehicles from the pressure of parking violations and cannot drive to work.
Purpose of the Research

The purpose of the research is to uncover ways to provide adequate parking for the organization's employees. The research should be reflected to look at all the alternatives to improve parking for employees and the advantages and disadvantages of each. For example, if the company was going to build a parking garage, how much would this addition cost the company and where would the employees park until the construction was complete? Conducting research to answer these types of questions is critical for an organization to avoid unnecessary cost and creating more issues for the company. The purpose of the research is to solve the employee parking situation without creating more issues for the employees.
Research Questions

Question One: Should company executives and real estate owner’s work towards building more…...

Handicap Parking

...In my opinion, people need to be more considerate, in every aspect of the word. More specifically and the topic I want to focus more on is that people should avoid taking the handicap parking spaces for granted. Some people absolutely need this option to limit the amount of distance they have to cover to get to their destination. So people need to avoid taking the spaces because they’ll be right back, or no one needs to park here, or whatever reason they can concoct to justify their decision. The only exception of course is if you have a state issued handicap sticker or license plate. Without either these two things it should be off limits to you. What some people do to cheat the system is to drive handicap relatives’ vehicles to reap the rewards of a closer parking spot. This is another case where people are just flat out rude. People with this option available to them, should do the honorable thing. Working at King Soopers, there are a lot of different people that come through the store. Some elderly people take advantage of their stickers and use these parking spaces in order to have a more efficient shopping experience. Which is the way it should be. There are some unfortunate instances where some people expect to be in and out quickly, but don’t respect that there might be someone else trying to use the spot. There was one instance where an older lady in a wheelchair had to park further away from Kings because a car was in the last available handicap spot without......

Ucm Parking

...Business Communication Instructor FROM: SUBJECT: Student Parking at UCM Here is the report you requested on 18 November 2012 investigating the current parking situations for the students at University of Central Missouri (UCM). In this report, I will be discussing problem and purpose of this report. Next, I will present data from the survey taken. Last, I will make a conclusion based on the findings. Problem: Parking spaces for UCM students The lack of parking spaces for students is a problem on UCM campus. According to the parking services survey, approximately 80 percent of the students have been late to class or a meeting on campus because of the current parking situation (Question 1). Over 56 percent of the students stated that they have left early for a class or meeting on campus because of the parking (Question 2). Sources and Methods: Parking Survey Info The parking survey consisted of eight questions. I received a total of 86 replies out of the 110 surveys that were sent out. The surveys were sent out on line with the returns done on line as well. From the replies received, I was able to produce charts to help explain the responses. No financial data was included in this survey; therefore, you will have no prices on this report. Discussion: Reporting Results of Survey The survey polled the students to find out how far they would be willing to walk from their parking spot to wherever they needed to be on campus. Chart 1 shows......

Toronto Parking

...City of Toronto Transportation Services Permit Parking 416-392-7873 INFORMATION ABOUT PERMIT PARKING Permit parking is implemented on either a street name basis where parking is restricted to one specific street or on an area basis where a number of streets have been grouped into permit areas in order to maximize the available parking. A permit holder who parks on a street authorized for permit parking must park in a legal parking space subject to existing traffic regulations. In addition, the vehicle registration must remain valid and the validation sticker must be affixed to your licence plate, while you are a permit holder. Permits issued on an area basis will have the corresponding area shown on the face of the permit. A permit holder with such a permit may park on any street authorized and signed, which bears the same area code. Permits issued on a street-name basis will have a five digit code number typed on the face of the permit. A permit holder with such a permit may park only on the authorized and signed sections of the street for which the permit is issued. As a permit holder, you must comply with all NO PARKING signs (for example, NO PARKING 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., etc.). However, you may ignore those signs on your street or in your designated area which limit parking to one, two or unsigned three hour parking restrictions. A permit holder shall be given a grace period to move their vehicle from 9:00 p.m. the previous night to 9:00 a.m. the next morning on......

The major areas of weakness require further investigation and remedial action by management are company too rely on manpower, traditional training programs can be too costly and often too time-consuming, continually increase manufacturing cost by China’s current Five-Year-Plan (2011-15) of minimum wage and the rising value of the RMB raise the production cost and made the goods more costly to ship.

On Street Parking

...2008 CHARLEY V. WOOTAN AWARD: Outstanding Paper in Policy and Organization Reassessing On-Street Parking Wesley E. Marshall, Norman W. Garrick, and Gilbert Hansen The ongoing debate about the merits and drawbacks of on-street parking offers few definitive answers because comprehensive research in this area has been lacking. The goal is to develop a better understanding of the gamut of issues related to on-street parking, ranging from parking demand and the pedestrian environment to less researched topics such as the efficiency of land use. In addition, the basic question of safety is addressed in a more precise way than previously by taking into account actual vehicle speeds and crash severity levels. The investigation points to on-street parking as crucial in benefiting activity centers on numerous levels. Users of the downtowns consistently valued these landefficient on-street parking spaces over and above off-street surface lots and garages. Low-speed streets with on-street parking also had the lowest fatal and severe crash rates of any road category in the study of 250 Connecticut roadway segments. Part of the reason is that the presence of parking had a measurable effect on vehicle speeds. On-street parking is not purely a device to be used in the right environment; rather, it is a tool to help create that right environment. On-street parking should be more commonly used but especially in situations in which the road is part of the destination and the intent is to......

Parking Space

...My Car Need A Space My petition is based on my daily life experiences, also experiences from my other friends. I think that Indiana University Bloomington should provide more parking spaces for students in order to decreasing the wait time for parking. And decrease the parking rate for students at the same time. In order to get signatures I send email to my classmates not only from this class but also the others. However as an international student it’s not easy to get signatures from Facebook or Tweet, because there are only few of them on my list. Also I have think about sending email to people I know in my country. However that doesn’t work as well, the reason is my petition is more based on our school situation, people who outside of our school may not pay attention on it. As a result, I decide to send email to people who actually attend to Indiana University Bloomington, and would pay attention on the situation. At the beginning of the semester there was a concept mention in class, which is social change using social media. Before I start on this project I didn’t realize how social media makes changes to our lives, because we already used to use media everyday so it not sound like a big deal when we were discussing in class. However when I actually start on this petition project, I feel how amazing media is, also how social change using social media. If there is no Internet, no laptop, and then we have no way to finish......

...will result in a safer and more productive workforce. Here are 10 tips for developing an overtime policy that will reduce the likelihood of safety, health and production problems. 1) Beware of the “excessive overtime cycle.” When overtime levels are too high, a counterproductive cycle quickly sets in. Shift workers always feel tired, making them prone to sickness or the need to take a mental health day. Consequently, absenteeism rises, which leads to more overtime and starts a vicious cycle that leads to productivity losses and increased accident risk. 2) Set an annual cap. To prevent an “excessive overtime cycle,” many operations set an annual or monthly cap on overtime hours. A cap benefits employee health and safety and also helps distribute overtime more evenly among the employee population. 3) Account for the “time of day” effect. An annual overtime cap is a good starting point, but it overlooks the effect circadian rhythms have on human performance. Because the human body experiences a low ebb in energy between 3 a.m. and 6 a.m., working during the overnight hours is much harder than working during the daytime. Owing to this “time of day” effect, it’s advisable to track overtime hours by night-shift hours and day-shift hours. If you use fixed shifts, you might want to have a lower annual cap for night crews than day crews. If you use rotating shifts, you should make sure that no more than half of an individual’s overtime hours accrue during night shifts. 4)......

...in traffic demand, leading to an imbalance between parking supply and parking demand. This has been considered as the main reason for urban cities’ parking problems. Moreover, the parking system plays a key role in the metropolitan traffic system, and the parking problems show closed relation with traffic congestion, traffic accident, and environment pollution as stated in an article about metropolis traffic problems. [2] It has become imperative for service providers to provide proper parking spaces and facilities for their customers, clients and employees to give them a competitive advantage. Because the current road system does not provide enough facilities to park most of the cars on the road, big cooperation’s with large amount of staff’s include a proper parking facilities as a priority in the design of their buildings. Recreational centers, shopping malls all provide parking facilities for their customers and clients as people will patronize a service provider with convenient parking facilities. With the provisions of these parking lots comes its management, this includes managing and keeping count of the number of spaces available, managing of people with access to the parking lot and for recreation centers and shopping malls involves management of revenue as customers are made to pay a stipend for time spent on the parking lot. Because of the large amount of money shopping malls invest in providing convenient parking lots, it is not unusual for the organizations......

We can say that they emphasise the strategic role that people have over the efficiency of the company: 1. Attracting, developing and retaining high-quality people – resourcing strategy. The identification of those factors that tend to attract people to the organisation and those that put them off constitutes an understanding of the organisation’s strengths and weaknesses as an employer, in relations with other employers from the activity sector. Retention strategy aims to ensure that key people stay with the organisation and that wasteful and expensive levels of employee turnover are reduced. 2. Talent management.

The Push for Preferred Parking

...Have you ever gone to a supermarket or mall, and driven around the lot several times looking for a parking space? Each time you pass the front of the building you see all of those handicapped parking spaces that are not being used and you may think to yourself, “I need a special parking space!” Recently, this has become a hot topic among pregnant women. In several states including: Texas, Mississippi, Vermont, and Georgia, the legislature has attempted to pass a bill that would amend the standards, already set forth for disabled parking permits, by including pregnant women. The legislation would allow pregnant women to apply for and receive a temporary disabled parking placard that would enable them to park, in any handicapped parking space available, for up to two months after their child is born. This brings forth the question of whether or not pregnancy is a disability. Proponents for this type of bill argue that pregnant women “should be extended the courtesy of handicapped parking privileges,” (http://stork.glokraemer.com). Their reasons vary, but basically it comes down to convenience. Pregnant woman don’t want to walk the extra hundred feet because they are tired. If they have other children while pregnant it is easier for them to only walk thirty-five feet to the store while holding a toddler’s hand and carrying the extra weight of pregnancy. What they fail to realize is that once they get into the store they are going to walk around shopping while holding their...

Proposal to Change Parking Requirements

...Proposal to Change Resident Parking Requirements Iris Bundy Strayer University Online ENG 315: Professional Communication Professor Dennis McGeehan November 22, 2015 Dear Councilmember Bowser: Enclosed is a copy of my justification report regarding the restriction and enforcement of residential parking in my Ward 4 zone? The lack of enforcement has allowed nonresidents to park without restriction or penalties in the areas allotted for residents of this zone. The residents of Ward 4 are interested in changing the parking stipulations from 2 hour nonresidential parking to residential only parking. The research indicates an overwhelming need to eliminate residents having to compete with neighborhood business for the limited parking spaces. Placing the restrictions will ensure that the residents can find reasonable parking spaces at night and especially on weekends. This report details the benefits to the residence of Ward 4 and Webster Street. It also addresses the concern of residences recent anxiety in dealing with the parking situation. The changes will provide a sense of safety while entering and exiting our neighborhood. . If you have any questions about this report, you may contact me at the following phone number xxx-xxx-xxxx.

Parking Permits

...Ashley M. Taylor English 102 Professor Catanese “Pining for Parking spots” Its 7:45 Monday morning and you’re on the road to campus and hoping that a parking spot is available. Not only do students face this dilemma, but teachers do as well. Some professors are tardy to classes due to traffic but what about the major traffic that comes with trying to find a parking spot on campus? The morning rush of various professionals during the day is time consuming and everyone seems to have some place to go and they are in a rush to get there. Students who live off-campus have to worry about the possibilities of having to miss a class as a result of no parking on campus. With this ongoing dilemma directly affecting the students and faculty, I propose that USC opens another parking garage on campus to better accommodate these people. If the University of South Carolina were to build at least two new parking garages on campus, I guarantee that the complaints about the lack of parking on campus would decrease, and attendance by students as well as professors would not be directly affected by the strain of parking spots on campus. As a result of construction of the Patterson dormitory, USC housing has the stressful task of trying to find proper housing for the incoming freshman of the fall semester. The dorms normally reserved for upperclassmen such as East, South and West Quad, as well as the horseshoe apartments are now being occupied by freshmen and upperclassmen must......

Kfupm Parking Problems

...these difficulties is parking problems. Parking space is one of the extremely important issues for all automobile users. It is even more important for universities students such as KFUPM students. They have a severe parking problem, which has developed recently along with the increased numbers of students being admitted and having cars. I choose this title as my term paper topic because it's a common issue at KFUPM, causes congestion while students are looking for parking lots and it's time wasted. In the past, parking for cars was no problem at KFUPM. Nowadays, this has become a serious problem with fixing roads and lateness accidents. In my opinion, finding a parking space is the biggest problems that face students. Sometimes you see cars parked in no parking zone which causes congestion of people driving around looking for parking spaces which make it difficult to find one. Students claim that there is insufficient parking spaces which mean they have to wait 5 or more minutes before they find a parking lot. They have to park very far from their relevant buildings where they have classes. These 5 or more minutes are enough to decide whether a student is recorded late or on time for class. Also they are forced to park in no parking zone to avoid being late for class and taking the risk of having to pay parking violation fines. As an example, one day I came late to the university and I spent 20 minutes driving around looking for a car parking space and it......
