At HouseMark we recognise that the sector is changing. From changes in policy and regulation, to an increasing emphasis on board accountability and transparency, we know, and understand, the impact, the challenges, as well as the opportunities change can bring.
This is why we are changing too. We are responding to a sector that is diversifying and innovating. We see real opportunities to work with housing organisations to offer more bespoke and tailored services to support them through change, improvement and transformation.
With over 18 years of housing data and access to a wide range of curated open data sets, we have a wealth of insights that our members can use to better understand their business, evidence decision-making and uncover new ways of working.
Our members are telling us that now, more than ever, there is a real requirement to balance social purpose with commercial ambition. HouseMark can support organisations to use data to provide actionable insight which supports evidence based decision making, ensuring that resources are used in an optimal way – aligned with organisational priorities: targeting areas which are ripe for efficiency savings and performance improvement.
