Transforming Tenant Experience: Strategies for Property Owners

In today's evolving work landscape, property owners face the challenge of attracting and retaining tenants in their buildings. As tenants re-evaluate their real estate needs, it's crucial for property owners to prioritize tenant experience. By implementing effective strategies, you can transform your building into a thriving workplace community that tenants, employees, and visitors love.

Increase Physical Occupancy with Accessibility

Making your building easily accessible is the first step in encouraging tenants to work on-site. Consider implementing the following measures:

  • Arrange shuttle services or negotiate commuter benefits
  • Provide a secure bike room and encourage carpooling
  • Utilize a multi-tenant visitor management system to optimize parking allocation
  • Offer parking reservations and additional valet staff during busy days

Streamline Security Throughout the Building

Ensure that tenants and visitors have an effortless yet secure experience when accessing your building:

  • Integrate an access control provider with your visitor management system
  • Establish a central security checkpoint at the building's front desk
  • Use a multi-tenant visitor management system that assigns badges to verified visitors
  • Automatically notify tenants when their visitors check-in

Provide Perks and Amenities for Tenants and Visitors

Transform your building into a modern environment that inspires collaboration and focus by offering:

  • Variety of work spaces, including conference rooms, co-working areas, focus booths, and community lounges
  • Comfortable seating in the lobby and smart lockers for visitor luggage
  • Amenities like hot coffee, outdoor seating, smart thermostats, and good lighting

Regularly Collect and Act on Tenant Feedback

Solicit unstructured feedback from tenants about their broader experiences within the building:

  • Send out monthly surveys with quantifiable questions and open text responses
  • Measure sentiment trends over time and capture timely verbatim feedback
  • Communicate building improvements and policy changes to tenants promptly

Adopt a Tenant-First Approach with the Right Technology

When evaluating technology solutions, prioritize tools that integrate with your tenants' existing systems, such as Outlook, Teams, or Slack. Envoy Connect is a powerful platform that enables property owners to centralize visitor management, integrate with building access control systems, and provide real-time property analytics.

By implementing these strategies and leveraging the right technology, property owners can create a secure environment and a seamless tenant experience that boosts retention and attracts new tenants.
