German Fairness Award 2022 / consumer vote: Germany’s fairest companies – winners in 63 categories – celebratory award ceremony

Berlin/Hamburg (ots) – Fair companies treat customers as equals, appear open and are reliable. An award shows who is currently in charge here: The German Institute for Service Quality and the news channel ntv are today awarding the German Fairness Award 2022 in 63 categories. The basis is a large consumer survey with around 65,000 customer opinions. The award ceremony will take place in the evening at Bertelsmann’s representative office in Berlin (broadcast reference: ntv service, Thursday 27 October 2022, 18:35).

This year, for example, DHL (parcel service), Viactiv Krankenkasse (statutory health insurance), Dr. Klein (financial advice), Injoy (fitness studios), Advocard (legal aid insurance), Panasonic (consumer electronics), Schlaraffia (beds & mattresses) or Vergölst (independent car workshops). “Reliability and price-performance ratio were mostly the guarantors of high customer satisfaction. The award winners set standards for fairness in their industry,” says Markus Hamer, CEO of the German Institute for Service Quality.

Catja Stammen, ntv editor-in-chief Service-Magazine: “No one can judge the fairness of companies better than their customers with their personal experiences. The consumer vote makes the fairness award an award that ensures transparency across many industries and provides important guidance.”

In the survey, which was representative of the population, an online panel examined customer satisfaction with the companies in the areas of value for money, reliability and transparency. Several individual aspects were taken into account, such as pricing and product reliability, compliance with agreements, goodwill in case of complaints, completeness and comprehensibility of product information, transparency of contracts and avoidance of hidden costs and teasers. In addition, the customers’ willingness to recommend the company was included in the overall result. Respondents could only rate one company per category that they had been in contact with or whose products they had used within the last twelve months. 64,960 customer votes were received. Ratings were received from 849 providers; 680 companies that received at least 80 customer testimonials were included in the evaluation.
