“How likely is it that you would recommend (name) to a friend or a colleague?”

This simple question is used to determine a company’s Net Promoter Score (NPS). While the use of NPS as a customer satisfaction measure is becoming more prevalent within the disability sector, it's still not widely understood.

The only tool of its kind, the NPS is quick to complete and easy to understand for the customer, while providing an organisation with qualitative data that is easy to interpret and analyse. In the new DES world of participant choice, it represents an exciting opportunity to gather meaningful customer data to help drive continuous service delivery improvement.

Since July 2017, JobAccess has been using NPS to gather information about customer experience, surveying over 700 employees with disability and over 400 employers who have used the service. Consistently receiving high NPS scores from both groups, JobAccess has been able to use the feedback to both validate service delivery and inform service improvements.

We will share the JobAccess experience with NPS, including actual scores received and practical service delivery changes that have been made, providing an in-depth case study for organisations in the disability space keen to implement this tool.
