Our survey design

Our TSM survey and its data is collected, generated and validated internally at Ongo using our online survey system. We protect all respondents anonymity and will never publish or share an individual’s personal information with a third party or without consent. We will only ever contact a tenant in relation to feedback given if a tenant has given us permission to do so.

Summary

At Ongo, we’re committed to offering quality homes and continuing to work hard to improve our overall customer satisfaction by addressing the lowest scoring measures concerning our residents. This includes addressing issues with keeping you up to date on repairs, making it easier to book a repair and getting any repair fixed at the first visit. Complaints is another area we are working at improving as we know how important it is to deal with a complaint quickly and ensure that any follow-up actions are dealt with within timescales. Where tenants have confirmed they’re happy to be contacted and answered the free text part of the TSM survey “How do you think Ongo Homes could improve its service?”, we’re getting in touch to find out more, and using the feedback to continually shape and improve the services we offer.
