User Guide: Employee Net Promoter Score (eNPS)


This guide will clarify what eNPS is, how it’s scored, and demonstrate how to utilize the eNPS survey type within Prosper EX.

1. What is eNPS?

eNPS stands for “Employee Net Promoter Score.” It’s a metric used to measure employee satisfaction and loyalty within an organization. It’s derived from the Net Promoter Score (NPS) framework, which is commonly used to gauge customer satisfaction and loyalty.

2. How is eNPS scored and calculated?

To calculate eNPS, employees are asked a single question: “On a scale of 0-10, how likely are you to recommend [Company Name] as a place to work?” Based on their responses, employees are categorized into three groups:

  1. Promoters (score 9-10): These are employees who are highly satisfied and likely to promote the company as a good place to work.
  2. Passives (score 7-8): These are satisfied but not enthusiastic employees. They’re less likely to actively promote the company.
  3. Detractors (score 0-6): These are dissatisfied employees who may actively speak negatively about the company.

The eNPS is then calculated by subtracting the percentage of detractors from the percentage of promoters. The resulting score can range from -100 to +100. A positive score indicates that there are more promoters than detractors, suggesting a generally satisfied and loyal workforce. Conversely, a negative score indicates that there are more detractors than promoters, highlighting potential issues with employee satisfaction and loyalty.

3. What is a good score?

Grading eNPS scores in a spotlight format can provide a quick and intuitive way to interpret the results. Here’s a common grading scale based on eNPS scores:

  1. Excellent (Green):

    • Score Range: +20 to +100
    • Description: An excellent score indicating a highly satisfied and loyal workforce. This suggests that a significant majority of employees are promoters and are likely to recommend the company as a great place to work.
  2. Acceptable (Amber):

    • Score Range: +1 to +19
    • Description: A good score indicating overall satisfaction and loyalty among employees. While there may be areas for improvement, the majority of employees are promoters, contributing positively to the company’s reputation as an employer.
  3. Needs Improvement (Red):

    • Score Range: -100 to 0
    • Description: A score suggesting that there are as many detractors as promoters or that there’s a significant proportion of detractors within the organization. This indicates areas where the company needs to focus on improving employee satisfaction and loyalty.
