Top companies leverage Net Promoter Score (NPS) and Employee Net Promoter Score (eNPS) to monitor and enhance customer and Team Member satisfaction, respectively, leading to various organizational benefits. Here are the key reasons and ways these metrics are used, supported by examples and insights:

  1. Streamlined Tracking: Both NPS and eNPS provide a way to continuously gather data and identify trends in customer and Team Member experiences, helping organizations pinpoint strengths and weaknesses. Source


  1. Building Stronger Relationships: Understanding and improving NPS can lead to more loyal customers and profitable relationships. Similarly, a high eNPS indicates strong Team Member engagement, which is closely linked to customer satisfaction. Source


  1. Improved Online Reputation: Companies manage their online reputation through NPS, as satisfied customers and Team Members are more likely to leave positive reviews and recommend the company. Source


  1. Reduced Customer Churn: High NPS scores correlate with customer loyalty, reducing customer turnover and increasing revenue. A high eNPS suggests engaged Team Members who contribute to customer satisfaction and revenue generation. Source


  1. Creating More Customer Advocates: High NPS scores identify promoters who advocate for the company, often leading to cost-effective customer acquisition. Source


  1. Expanded Revenue Opportunities: An increase in NPS scores can lead to customers spending more, thus enhancing revenue opportunities. Source


  1. Simplified Benchmarking: NPS allows for easy comparison with industry competitors, aiding in strategic planning. Source


  1. Increased Customer Satisfaction: Improving NPS scores can directly enhance customer experience and satisfaction levels. Source


  1. Team Member Engagement and Business Results: Companies like Apple use eNPS to gauge Team Member willingness to recommend the workplace. Higher engagement and satisfaction among Team Members have been linked to increased profitability, lower absenteeism, and greater customer loyalty. Source Source


  1. Ease of Implementation and High Participation Rates: eNPS surveys are simple and cost-effective, resulting in higher participation rates compared to more extensive surveys. This simplicity aids in more regular and effective monitoring of Team Member satisfaction. Source


  1. Improving Various Business Metrics: By measuring and improving eNPS, companies can boost performance, productivity, profits, employer brand, retention, innovation, and creativity. Team Member morale improves when they feel their opinions are valued and acted upon. Source

These metrics offer a comprehensive view of an organization’s health from both customer and Team Member perspectives, guiding strategic decisions that lead to improved performance, customer loyalty, and revenue.


Real-world Examples

Top companies that use Net Promoter Score (NPS) and Team Member Net Promoter Score (eNPS) have reported significant outcomes in various aspects of their business. Here are some examples:

  • Apple: 

Apple has been a pioneer in adopting eNPS, using recurrent pulse surveys to gauge Team Member satisfaction and likelihood of recommending the company as a workplace. Source

  • NPS Score: 72
  • Outcome:  From an NPS of 58 in 2007 to 72 in 2022 Apple’s commitment to improving its Net Promoter Score, even amidst challenges like the pandemic, has been a key factor in its success. In 2020, despite the global challenges, Apple maintained strong customer engagement and recorded a record fiscal year. Apple has effectively used customer feedback and Team Member engagement to drive innovation and continuously improve its services and products, leading to high customer satisfaction and loyalty.

  • Amazon:
  • NPS Score: 62
  • Outcome: High customer loyalty, with 73% of people who try Amazon Prime becoming paid members. After the first year, 91% renew for a second year, and 96% for a third year. Source

  • Airbnb:
  • NPS Score: 74
  • Outcome: Steady growth in user base, with around 41.1 million users in the U.S. as of 2019, expected to grow to around 45.6 million by 2022. Source

  • Tesla:
  • NPS Score: 96
  • Outcome: High brand loyalty with approximately 91% of Tesla owners saying they would buy again from the brand. Tesla also saw a sales increase of up to 21.4% in 2020. Source

  • Netflix:
  • NPS Score: 68
  • Outcome: Strong customer retention with 80% of subscribers not paying for other streaming services, and an average subscription duration of 25 months. Source

  • Starbucks:
  • NPS Score: 77
  • Outcome: High customer loyalty indicated by the popularity of its rewards program and mobile app usage. Their loyalty program holds more money than some banks, and the app is the second most-used mobile payment app. Source

These companies attribute their success to factors driven by customer and Team Member feedback, like simplicity and reliability of services, fast and quality customer service, unique and innovative products. These, in turn, drive high customer loyalty, strong referrals, and a high level of Team Member satisfaction and engagement. Source
