Resident involvement – measuring the value of it

Residents are the life blood of your organisation. Communicating with them, involving them and listening to them is the responsibility of everyone in the organisation – even those who have little or no frontline contact with residents.

Resident involvement – measuring the value of it

Measuring the value of resident involvement The social housing sector has a long history of engaging with its residents and as it faces more challenging times the business case for resident involvement needs to be measured and fully understood by landlords.

So what have residents ever done for you? How do you measure the outcomes and impact of resident involvement to show just how valuable engagement is to your business?

  • Identify the key terms (inputs, outputs, outcomes and impact) and their meanings
  • Explore how to show the value of resident involvement from the start by planning key outcomes
  • Review your current process for measuring the value of resident involvement
  • Identify how to measure impact
