While there is some obvious movement in the parking industry — cars regularly go in and out of lots — there is stagnation, too. Vehicles sit collecting dust and sometimes other things, too, if it’s an outdoor lot.
At LAZ Parking, Andi Campbell put the wheels in motion to get the company’s employee engine running smoothly. She helped shift LAZ’s gears by connecting its 7,500 workers in 250 cities across the United States via a corporate social network.
Campbell, 36, LAZ’s vice president of human resources, introduced the LAZ Nation Tribe to the company, which allows workers to connect with each other via mobile devices. She also launched LAZ Parking Manager Tribe, a platform that allows managers to drive home points to each other.
To help train employees, Campbell started LAZ U Learning Center, an internal site that offers training videos, which has helped workers maneuver the leadership pipeline.
“In less than two years, Andi has found ways to dramatically strengthen employee engagement, improve manager collaboration and sharing of best practices,” wrote Mike Kuziak, LAZ’s chief operating officer.
