Here at Metal Toad, we are thrilled to share that our forward-thinking tech company has achieved an extraordinary Employee Net Promoter Score (eNPS) of 86. This outstanding score is a testament to our unwavering commitment to ensuring our employees are not just satisfied but genuinely engaged in their work.
Let's delve into the significance of eNPS, understand how it compares to scores in other companies, and explore the best practices we've implemented for using this powerful metric.
Benchmarking our eNPS against industry standards is a crucial practice as we aim to assess our performance. Typically, the IT industry benchmark for eNPS hovers around 26. It's particularly gratifying to note that our remarkable score of 86 positions Metal Toad well above the industry norm, showcasing our exceptional dedication to creating a workplace that fosters employee satisfaction and loyalty.
Comparing eNPS to Other Companies:
The eNPS score can range from -100 to 100. Scores between 10 and 30 are considered 'good,' while those between 50 and 70 are deemed excellent. An eNPS score above 80, like Metal Toad's, places us in the top echelons of employee satisfaction. Benchmarking eNPS is valuable, helping us assess our performance over time.
As the Director of Operations and HR, I emphasize the importance of striving for even higher scores or maintaining the exceptional score we've achieved. It's a reflection of our ongoing dedication to creating an outstanding workplace for our employees.

eNPS vs. NPS:
Our eNPS closely mirrors the concept of Net Promoter Score (NPS), which evaluates customer loyalty and satisfaction. While eNPS and NPS assess different groups (employees and customers, respectively), we've observed that companies with high eNPS scores, like Metal Toad, also tend to have high NPS scores. Happier employees are more likely to provide excellent service to customers, creating a virtuous cycle of satisfaction.
Why Measure eNPS?
A Gallup survey revealed that highly engaged workforces are 21% more profitable and 17% more productive than disengaged counterparts.
At Metal Toad, we derive immense benefits from measuring eNPS. It provides quick insights into employee engagement levels, allowing for immediate action. The advantages of eNPS include ease of use, high participation rates, rapid data collection and analysis, and genuine feedback. The simple question, "How likely are you to recommend the company as a place to work?" elicits honest responses, as our employees can answer anonymously. This approach enables continuous measurement of employee engagement, allowing us to monitor and enhance it consistently.
Best Practices for Using eNPS:
Achieving and maintaining a high eNPS score requires a multifaceted approach, and at Metal Toad, we've implemented several best practices:
- Discover the Reasons: In cases of low scores, understanding the reasons behind them is crucial. Conducting follow-up meetings or surveys can reveal areas that need improvement and help employees feel heard.
- Transparency and accountability: by sharing the results.
- Taking Action: Our commitment to taking action based on survey results is exemplary. If employees express a desire for career advancement, we invest in learning and development initiatives. Continuous feedback and improvements in policies demonstrate our dedication to our workforce.
- Positive Workplace Culture: We foster a positive workplace culture by celebrating achievements, promoting work-life balance, and offering wellness programs. A happy and engaged workforce is more likely to recommend the company.
- Invest in Training and Development: Employees seek opportunities for growth, and at Metal Toad, we understand this. We invest in various training and development programs, contributing to higher engagement and job satisfaction.
- Effective Communication: Transparent and regular communication is a hallmark of our approach. Effective communication helps employees feel connected to the organization and included in important decisions.
