First Factory has adopted the quarterly Employee Net Promoter Score (eNPS), a tool used by Human Resource departments to gain insights into employee satisfaction and loyalty. Taking its cue from the Net Promoter survey used for nearly two decades to measure customer sentiment, survey scores range from -100 to 100. Through our HR Info System provider, BambooHR, we have conducted these anonymous quarterly eNPS surveys starting in early 2022. Our current eNPS is 82 and we have yet to fall below 80, with upwards of 77% of our team responding.
Leading organizations deem that an eNPS score above zero is good or acceptable, while scores above fifty are considered excellent. In their 2022 blog post, “Employee Net Promoter Score: A Brief Guide” Vantage Circle indicates that, “a score of over 70 is deemed to be groundbreaking” and represents the top five percent of companies worldwide. We are incredibly proud of what our eNPS score of 82 represents and are fully committed to making First Factory one of the best places to work.
We recognize that the strength of our company lies in the dedication and generosity of our employees. As such, we provide open communication channels, incredible tools to perform their jobs, and managers that are very hands-on. We invest in employee development, including but not limited to: education reimbursement, English courses, monthly tech talks, whitepapers, training housed in our custom LMS, and more. We work hard to create and maintain a culture antithetical to the transactional hire/fire of so many software development vendors. Here at First Factory everyone is treated with respect, all input is welcome, and every employee has the opportunity to learn, share and advance along a career path they are excited about.
We will not stop listening to our employee’s feedback and working to improve the quality of our work environment and the opportunities they have as software creators, all while ensuring that this translates to client satisfaction and business impact.
