Employee Net Promoter Score (eNPS) Templates offer the benefits of customer-facing NPS campaigns, but with a focus on your people.
eNPS can help you understand employee loyalty over time or highlight shifts in sentiment as changes are implemented inside your organization, such as before and after updates to a benefits package. Used in this way, eNPS helps you measure the effectiveness of your leadership and company environment in its efforts to constantly improve the employee experience.
What is the eNPS survey flow?
Employee NPS surveys share the foundational components of customer-facing NPS. This includes the two-step collection method:
- 0 to 10 scale point selection
- Open-ended comment
The key differences reside in the question and in the anonymity of the responses.
With standard NPS, you’re asking how likely someone is to recommend your brand/product to a friend. With eNPS, you’re asking how likely an employee is to recommend working at your company to a friend or colleague.
Respondents are broken into the same three categories as in the standard NPS survey:
- Promoters: 9-10
- Passives: 7-8
- Detractors: 0-6

How is the eNPS score calculated?
The employee Net Promoter Score equation is:
% Promoters - % Detractors = eNPS
Let’s break that down:
- % Promoters: Total percent of responses where the score was a 9 or a 10
- % Detractors: Total percent of responses where the score was 6 or below
eNPS rounds to a whole number.
Let's imagine receiving the following responses:
- Promoters: 10 (50% of total responses)
- Passives: 5 (25% of total responses)
- Detractors: 5 (25% of total responses)
Plugging this into our eNPS equation, we get:
50 - 25 = 25 (for eNPS score)
Testing and previewing an eNPS question vs. a full questionnaire
There are two—very different—preview options to consider. You can:
- Preview an eNPS question in customization mode
- Preview an entire eNPS Template in a platform testing environment
1. Preview an eNPS question in customization mode
Visualize how your eNPS question will appear (with the Desktop and Mobile preview options) as you customize the look and feel of your survey. Preview the changes you make to the color scheme, logo, and text elements of your eNPS question in real time. (See Customization Basics + Quick Start Video.)
2. Preview an entire eNPS Template in a platform testing environment
Previewing how respondents will experience your full survey (particularly if you've added Additional Questions to your questionnaire) requires testing at the platform level.
To learn how to test and preview you entire eNPS Template, click and explore each of the distribution platform(s) that you have deployed from this list:
- Testing and previewing Email platform Templates
- Testing and previewing Web platform Templates
- Testing and previewing Link platform Templates
- Testing and previewing Kiosk platform Templates
- Testing the SDK Platform — Previewing the SDK Platform
Additional questions are added to each platform independently of the others; ergo, you should preview and test each of your distribution platforms separately.
Are responses anonymized?
Yes. eNPS survey responses are fully anonymized—redacting both Name and Email fields. This means that you won't be able to see who opened, responded to, or didn't answer your survey, nor will you be able to see which response belongs to which person.
With anonymous surveys, employees will feel more comfortable being fully candid in their responses—ensuring that your overall dataset is more complete, accurate, and actionable.
Concerned you wont have the ability to slice and dice the data?
Don't be! Delighted's eNPS survey type still accepts Properties, so you can segment information by department, location, role, or any other number of data points you pass our way:
All exported data from Delighted CX, including CSV exports and API/webhook payloads, will be fully redacted with regards to Name and Email fields.
What integrations are best to use with eNPS?
Delighted's eNPS works best out-of-box with the following HR-focused integrations:
Don't stop with those integrations! We offer over 40 other integrations with platforms like Slack, Zapier, Autopilot, and others. Discover your next integration connection here.
What integrations are not supported?
eNPS surveys are anonymous and don't capture respondent email addresses. Therefore, any integration that works by syncing feedback by respondent email address are not supported by eNPS surveys—it's a privacy issue.
Delighted's eNPS Template type does not support the following integrations:
Does eNPS work with Delighted's mobile app?
Yes! Delighted's eNPS survey type is fully supported with Delighted's iOS App.
Can I de-anonymize a response after it has been recorded for legal reasons?
No, there is no way to recover the name and/or email address of a respondent after the response has been recorded.
If you think there may be a reason to need to reference the employee who completed the survey after a response is recorded, we recommend passing over a property with the survey send that can be used to identify the respondent in your own system, such as employee ID. This allows the response to appear anonymous within Delighted but also allows you to find the source if needed.
