We published the 2016 Temkin Experience Ratings, the most comprehensive benchmark of customer experience. In the sixth year of the Ratings, we analyze feedback from 10,000 U.S. consumers to rate 294 organizations across 20 industries. Here’s the executive summary:
2016 marks the sixth straight year that we’ve published the Temkin Experience Ratings, a cross-industry, open standard benchmark of customer experience. This year, Publix and H-E-B earned the top two spots, and supermarket chains overall took six of the top 11 spots. At the other end of the spectrum, Fujitsu received the lowest score of any company, closely followed by Health Net. Five other health plans joined them in the bottom 11. To generate these ratings, we asked 10,000 U.S. consumers to rate their recent interactions with 294 companies across 20 industries and then evaluated their experiences across three dimensions: success, effort, and emotion. Publix and H-E-B earned the highest ratings for success, while Publix, O’Reilly Auto Parts, True Value, and Save-a Lot earned the highest for effort, and Publix, Chick-fil-A, and Residence Inn earned the highest for emotion. And when we looked at who had the best and the worst ratings for each industry, we found that USAA actually earned the highest ratings in two industries, while Comcast received the lowest ratings in two industries. Amazon.com, USAA, Holiday Inn Express, and Residence Inn outperformed their industry averages by the most points, while Fujitsu, Motel 6, and HSBC fell behind by the most points. Although all industries declined between 2015 and 2016, rental car agencies and health plans experienced the most dramatic drops. Meanwhile, Coventry Health Care, Con Edison of New York, and True Value improved the most over the last year, and Volkswagen dealers, Fairfield Inn, and Fujitsu dropped the most. To improve customer experience, companies need to master four competencies: Purposeful Leadership, Compelling Brand Values, Employee Engagement, and Customer Connectedness.
