With today's businesses needing to attract and retain the best people to succeed in a more competitive and uncertain trading environment, landlords can no longer take the approach as just a rent collector.

Savvy landlords are finding new ways to keep tenants happy, healthy and more productive in their environment.

When it comes to landlords capturing tenant loyalty, there are some key trends playing out in today's office market.

One is the help with the "second shift". This refers to all the chores we need to do when we leave our day jobs. This premise assumes that by removing these everyday annoyances, it frees us up to focus more on productivity of the task at hand. Services have moved beyond just a smiling security-style concierge to a hotel-style professional who can run errands, organise home repairs, book restaurants and tickets to shows, as well as organise children's birthday parties.

Health is important as there is overwhelming evidence of the benefits a positive work environment can have on people's health, wellbeing and ability to perform. Workplaces are being designed to be as healthy as possible – with features such as breathing walls full of live plants, exercise and yoga rooms, free lunchtime boot camps and mindfulness meditation classes.
