The Which Customer Satisfaction Score?

The customer satisfaction score is based on the responses consumers gave for both overall satisfaction and likelihood to recommend the supplier to a friend. Both questions are given equal weighting, and only those giving a valid response to both questions are included in the analysis. The responses are then analysed and scaled to give a rating between 0% and 100%. The survey was undertaken in 2015. Full details of the survey can be found on the Which website
