This topic looks at the provision, design, management and safety of employer-owned parking facilities as part of a major worksite or office.

Workplace parking is commonly provided by employers in order to ensure that their staff can get to work. Workplace car parks can also be used for business transport, for fleet parking, for goods deliveries and pick-ups, and for clients and customers. For larger organisations the management of car parking facilities may be devolved to facilities managers or outsourced.

The provision of workplace parking has become an increasingly sensitive issue in recent years. Traffic congestion has a negative impact air quality and contributes to global warming. Most modern organisations and local authorities therefore have an environmental sustainability agenda that must also be considered when looking at the changing travel and parking needs of commuters. In addition, specific locations may present individual challenges through being in a remote or high-density area.
