Shuffle is Wilson Parking’s answer to hybrid working

Wilson Parking is joining the hybrid-working revolution by offering a new technology solution called Shuffle, allowing businesses to be more agile in how they approach staff parking needs.

On 24 October 2022, Wilson Parking used the 2022 Property Council Congress as an opportunity to launch Shuffle which they describe as: “an end-to-end parking management technology solution, allowing companies to maximise their available parking allocation. Shuffle is available in public or private car parks (not limited to Wilson Parking car parks) and provides commuters access to car parks via the Shuffle app, either via Bluetooth or QR code. If no staff parking is available for the booking time, overflow parking options are available for parking in nearby Wilson Parking public car parks.”

Their statement about the new offering continued: “Shuffle comprises three key elements: an Administration Portal, Staff Parking App and enterprise-grade Shuffle Access solution. The platform is designed to meet the highest standards of security and privacy expected by corporates.”


Paul Sidwell, chief technology officer at Wilson Parking commented on the new product within a hybrid-working context, stating that, “The challenge for employers is to implement new ways to manage and maximise the usage of their parking capacity, while also providing a solution that is easy for staff to use.”

Mr Sidwell said: “Flexible commuting and hybrid working is here to stay and changing commuting behaviours are forcing landlords and employers to re-evaluate their parking requirements and how they optimise them.

“There is a need for tenants to better manage staff, fleet, and guest parking – providing a more convenient way for staff and guests to access parking when they need it. Shuffle is an enterprise solution with the flexibility for employers to self-manage employees.

“Convenient and cost-effective parking options can be an incredibly valuable and important employee benefit and lever in encouraging workers back into the office and cities generally.”

The HR Leader recently spoke with Abby Krauce, Haleon ANZ’s head of HR about how they’ve designed their office space to meet hybrid-working needs. She shared that, “We know that we can all work successfully face to face and we know that we can all work successfully remotely. So, what we now need to do is to experiment and understand how we can make ‘hybrid’ work for everyone.”

Pearson Australia’s country manager, David Lyons, provided some insights on successful hybrid working for the HR Leader in Practical tips and best practice for hybrid working from Pearson Australia.




Hybrid working

In a hybrid work environment, individuals are allowed to work from a different location occasionally but are still required to come into the office at least once a week. With the phrase "hybrid workplace," which denotes an office that may accommodate interactions between in-person and remote workers, "hybrid work" can also refer to a physical location.
