Schwab Stock Plan Services has earned the highest Net Promoter Score loyalty rating in the 2022 Equity Compensation Administration Benchmarking Study from independent research firm Group Five. Schwab also earned the second-highest ratings in the industry for overall satisfaction and value.
Schwab was the highest-rated provider in these administration service categories:
- Net Promoter Score – Loyalty – likely to recommend
- Ease-of-use of administration platform
- Satisfaction with fees charged to participants
“Earning such high ratings from our clients really drives home the impact of our ‘Through Clients’ Eyes’ strategy,” said Amy Reback, Head of Schwab Stock Plan Services. “Clients tell us their equity comp programs are more important than ever as they work to attract and retain talent. Knowing we are helping them successfully meet that challenge, and helping their employees make the most of their equity compensation, is extremely gratifying.”
Schwab also earned the highest ratings in these corporate image categories:
- Industry leader
- Empathy (Genuinely cares about my company’s and participants’ best interests)
“These top corporate image ratings show that Schwab’s values are on display for our clients and are part of their experience. They are building blocks of trust and the foundation of successful client relationships,” Reback said.
