Increase tenant satisfaction and secure better business outcomes with Residential and Housing Association market research 

TTi Global has over three decades’ experience of delivering incisive, tailored market research for private and social housing groups. We conduct extensive qualitative and quantitative housing research for organisations throughout UK and Europe, including Housing Association and Social Housing providers, Developers and Construction companies, helping uncover actionable insights to understand and enhance relationships with tenants, employees and other key stakeholders. 

Tenant, Employee and Stakeholder Surveys for Housing Associations

We conduct all types of research on behalf of Housing Association providers, from year-on-year STAR satisfaction surveys, to in-depth stakeholder research programmes.

An experienced full-service agency, many of our research directors work on year-round, large-scale housing research projects. We understand the complex factors that go into building a successful housing association model, including the need to balance a wide range of stakeholder needs, from understanding and meeting tenants’ expectations about their homes (‘Voice of the Customer’ research), to measuring the impact of building new homes on local communities. Understanding the sector’s unique challenges enables us to add value at every stage of the research process.
