WABAN, Mass., July 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Temkin Group announces the publication of the 2018 Temkin Emotion Ratings, the eighth year that the company has published the industry's most comprehensive benchmark of customer emotions.
Temkin Group's research shows that emotions frame how customers remember their interactions with companies and drives their ultimate loyalty. That's why it is one of the three components that Temkin Group measures in its industry standard customer experience metric, the Temkin Experience Ratings (along with success and effort). This measurement shows the degree to which customers have had a positive or negative emotional experience.
Based on a study of 10,000 U.S consumers, the 2018 Temkin Emotion Ratings evaluates the customer experience of 318 companies across 20 industries. Wegmans earned the highest rating (78%), followed by H-E-B (76%), Aldi (75%), Bed & Body Works (74%), Regions Bank (74%), and Baskin Robbins (74%).
At the other end of the spectrum, Cox Communications earned the lowest ratings (32%), just slightly behind Comcast (34%), Spectrum (35%), and Optimum (35%).
"Emotions are the cornerstone to loyalty, so every company must actively consider how its interactions affect their customers' emotions ," states Bruce Temkin, managing partner of Temkin Group.
