Would you like to find out if your employees are satisfied working for your organisation? Want to know if they are interested in recommending the place to friends and family? It is now possible thanks to the wonders of technology, with a Employee Promoter Score (eNPS), an indicator that allows you to to measure the loyalty that your employee feels towards their team and organisation.
With the online calculator that we made you’ll be able to measure the probability that your employees recommend their acquaintances to work for your company on a scale of 0 to 10. Essentially, the Employee Net Promoter Score (eNPS) is an indicator calculated on the basis of answers to the following question :
On a scale of 1 to 10, what is the probability that you would recommend a to a friend or relative to work at this company?
What is the eNPS and how do you calculate it?
The Employee Net Promoter Score (eNPS) is a sort of survey of an employee’s satisfaction, loyalty and compromise towards the company, that is based on the formulation of the question “What is the probability that you would recommend working here to a friend or acquaintance?” accompanied by a numeric scale from 0 to 10.
Once you have obtained the responses to the survey, the eNPS is easy to calculate. Firstly, classify the employees in 3 different categories :
- Promoters : employees that respond between 9 and 10
- Passives : employees that respond from 7 to 8
- Detractors : employees that respond from 0 to 6
After which, the eNPS is calculated as a percentage of promoters minus the percentage of detractors. In other terms, you apply the following formula :
eNPS = % of promoters – % of detractors
That is to say : (Promoters / n) – (Detractors / n)
n : is the number of employees that responded to the survey (Promoters + Neutrals + Detractors)
How to interpret the results from an eNPS survey
The results of applying the formula we used above can vary from -100% to +100%. As such, the central value is zero. An eNPS higher than zero is a favourable score and an eNPS score lower than zero is an unfavourable score. A positive eNPS score is around 30 and 60 per cent.
