A. Feedback has two important elements: the past and the future. Before you decide which member to hire, you can look at past feedback to check them out. After you hire a member and the work is finished, you add to that feedback. This system rewards excellent service and punishes bad work. Your feedback closes the loop and gives the next customer valuable information about that member.

Q. When I give feedback is it displayed straight away on the web site?

A. No, our staff personally processes each customer feedback before it’s displayed. If the customer is not happy, we take up any dissatisfaction directly with them and the member prior to display. All members can respond to both positive and negative feedback which is then displayed within each feedback report received.

Unlike other organisations ALL feedback is displayed
