Job Description Summary:

This position is responsible for leading and improving our Voice of the Customer Research & Analysis (VOC), Executive Inquiries, and I Am Eversource practices and teams.

  • The main goals of the VOC practice are to ensure that Eversource has effective practices in place to obtain customer input and use it to inform company business improvement initiatives and regulatory requirements. The VOC practices ensures that Eversource leaders and employees are aware of how our customers perceive the company and their interactions with company processes and employees, identifying the key drivers of customer satisfaction, and specific information to guide and measure the customer experience with Eversource. Voice of the customer information is obtained in a variety of methods, including in-house surveys, syndicated satisfaction studies, the online community, and other research. VOC is shared through the VOC Dashboard, special analyses & reporting, and other company methods for sharing customer experience information.
