This week Trident Group is hosting a week raising awareness of how customers can place a complaint against service they have received from Trident.
When Trident held their Resident Survey in 2021, 64% of respondents did not know how to complain about a negative experience they had had with our service. We are aiming to improve this percentage over the next couple of days so that every customer feels empowered to complain if they are not receiving the service we would expect for them.
Our Resident, Customer, Community Safety & Inclusion Team will also be hosting events at Clocktower Avenue and Pegasus Close in Telford to promote our complaints process. Customers in Shropshire showed less confidence in how to complain compared to other customers surveyed so have been the focus of this week. We will measure improvements using surveys of occupiers there to see the before and after effect of the week. More widely Trident will also be raising awareness of how to complain through a social media campaign explaining how the process works.
Having a robust and customer focussed response to complaints means that Trident can continue to improve, providing the best possible customer service. Trident has over the past year also improved the response to complaints including regular Cross-Departmental Complaints Case Review Meetings and increased involvement of residents through the Customer Voice Standing Group.
