The Family Contact Program
The Family Contact Program surveys families on services received from Golden Rule Funeral Homes. The new Family Contact Program debuted in 2015 and features all new questions, in-depth answer options, user-friendly reports, and online access to the survey. The program was developed in direct response to the information members found most useful for improving or securing their independent funeral homes.
How do you know if the families you serve are truly satisfied? Will they tell other families about their experience with your staff and arrangements conference? What did they think about your pricing, facilities, the level of comfort and the overall service they received? Are they interested in pre-arranging? OGR's Family Contact Program can find these answers and more.
The Family Contact Program is an exclusive member benefit. Because family/client satisfaction is a key indicator of your success, Family Contact was created to provide you with objective feedback from families recently served.
Families will appreciate your desire to maintain quality service standards, and you will appreciate the chance to reinforce your funeral home as a Golden Rule firm.
Along with the regular supplies, we have added new and revised materials to further improve your family feedback experience.
When you feel an appropriate amount of time has passed after a service, you will send the family a Family Contact packet or an email with a link to the online survey. The family will then complete the Review of Service survey and return it to OGR. OGR compiles the results into a Monthly Report that you will receive along with the original Review of Service surveys. Each January, you will receive a special Annual Report that provides the combined ratings of all participating OGR firms, to allow you to benchmark your firm with all participating firms.
Various comments that families make are selected and used for the Above & Beyond and Room for Improvement comments (Room for Improvement comments are kept anonymous) in the Family Contact Newsletter that is sent out with the monthly reports. Above & Beyond comments are also highlighted in the OGR quarterly publication, The Independent, and are automatically nominated for the Exemplary Service Awards presented at the annual conference.
