Jackson® Again Recognized As World Class Customer Service Provider By SQM

Jackson National Life Insurance Company ® (Jackson), a leading provider of retirement solutions with $129.9 billion in assets, has been awarded World Class Call Center Certification and the highest customer service rating for the financial services industry by the Service Quality Measurement Group, Inc. (SQM).

Jackson has received the World Class Certification from SQM in Call Center customer satisfaction eight times 1. This year also marks the eighth time that Jackson has earned SQM’s “Highest Customer Satisfaction by Industry” award, achieving the top rating for the financial services industry 2.

To achieve World Class Call Center Certification, 75 percent or more of the calls must be at the world class level for six months or more. While the financial services industry averages 74 percent, Jackson far exceeded the minimum, with 91 percent of calls receiving the highest possible score. SQM’s criteria is based on the customer’s satisfaction with their service experience and the call being resolved. Jackson’s service representatives were able to resolve 87 percent of issues in one call, which is markedly higher than the industry average of 72 percent.

“We are proud that Jackson has once again been awarded top honors from the Service Quality Measurement group for Call Center excellence,” said Mike Wells, Jackson president and chief executive officer. “Our commitment to providing world-class customer service is unwavering, and it is truly an honor for all of our associates to be recognized for their industry-leading service.”

For SQM’s Call Center Certification program, the company surveyed a minimum of 800 financial advisors within two business days of their contact with the Call Center to evaluate their service experience. SQM conducted the benchmarking study for the period of October 1, 2011 to September 30, 2012.

SQM benchmarks more than 450 North American contact centers annually, resulting in one of the largest customer survey databases. SQM has evaluated customer satisfaction for the contact center industry since 1996. For more information on SQM, please visit www.sqmgroup.com.
