PIE 2019: A Wake-Up Call for Parking Employers – Laney Solutions




The customer comes first. It’s a mantra heard in so many companies these days, but it’s one that is deeply flawed. See, there’s a problem with putting customers first.



It means that employees come in second, at best.

So much energy is spent today surrounding innovation, technology upgrades, and customer, yet many of us fail to recognize the importance of creating a positive employment experience for employees.

After all, a business is only successful as its employees, and that goes for any industry.

Whether you are a business owner, manager, or professional looking to move to a management role, those of us in the parking industry must understand how to attract and retain talent today.

This topic has never been more important than now. Between the mobility revolution and the record low US unemployment rates, parking employers are having to work increasingly hard to hang on to their best talent.

Furthermore, the employee-employer relationship has evolved and looks much different than even just a few years ago. The employee journey is fluid, and organizations must plan for movement into, within, and out of their company with flexibility and ease. Employees look at their jobs now as opportunities to pursue their passions, experience professional growth, gain new experiences, and expand their networks. And more and more, if employees aren’t getting these, they’ll leave.

To help managers and leaders in the parking industry develop strategies and tactics that will attract and retain top parking talent, Kathleen Laney of Laney Solutions will host the panel discussion, “Shifting Gears: How Hiring and Managing Parking Talent is Evolving in Today’s Mobility Market” at the PIE Expo in Chicago. This session will focus on how parking employers can create a positive employee experience to gain a competitive talent edge.

Take the wake-up call and don’t miss Kathleen’s session on Wednesday, March 13 at 10 am as she examines top parking employer’s issues with:

  • Stephane Jean-Marc Adovelande, General Manager – Chicago, LAZ Parking
  • Bryan Blackwell, Vice President of Business Development & Marketing – Amano McGann
  • Vanessa Solesbee, CAPP, Parking & Transit Manager – Town of Estes Park
  • Nicole Wylie, General Manager, SpotHero
