From simply telling us how we are doing to actively getting involved in developing how we work, there are plenty of ways for you to influence what we do. A whole range of opportunities is on offer for you to have your say and help shape and improve our services. Here are some of them.
Each year, we publish our Customer annual report, which let you know how we are performing and will also be sending out a bi-monthly Customer newsletter via email. We regularly update our website and feature news posts of any upcoming events. Arcon is also on the following social media platforms - Twitter, Instagram, Linkedin & Youtube, follow us to keep updated.
You can get involved by simply completing one of our customer surveys by post, over the phone, by text or online. This is a quick and easy way to get your voice heard and we very much value your feedback when it comes to improving the services we provide.
We invite customers to ‘go undercover’ and become mystery shoppers, helping us test the true quality of our services over the telephone and online.
We are always looking for volunteers to join our Reading Panel. This involves ‘editing’ our customer publications such as our annual report, newsletters and fact sheets. To pass the Panel’s scrutiny, information must be relevant, interesting and easy to understand. This is a job that can be tackled from home with no need to attend meetings.
Our Tenant Scrutiny Committee acts as a ‘critical friend’, reviewing and challenging how we are performing and how we deliver our services. We consult, with the Committee, on any major changes to the ways we deliver our services. Click here to read more about the Committee’s work.
Complete online surveys, improve services, and get rewarded.
