About the People’s Choice

It’s the 10th anniversary of the Mozo People’s Choice Awards in 2019, and to celebrate we’ve announced a range of new categories, covering services like online movie & TV streaming, NBN plans, supermarkets and online grocery options.

These services are household essentials that Aussies are increasingly spending money on and areas where we think hearing from genuine customers is more important than ever.

“When it comes to services like online food delivery, movie streaming platforms, NBN plans or even your energy plan, Aussies really value things like customer service, support and whether or not other customers would recommend the service. The Mozo People’s Choice Awards are a great way to find out which services and providers are excelling in these areas and more,” said Mozo Data Services Director AJ Duncanson.

So when we surveyed thousands of Aussies this year, we asked them about a wide variety of household brands and products, including 71 NBN providers, 32 electricity companies and 25 online wine and alcohol services to see which ones provide the best customer service, product range, customer satisfaction and more.

Frequently Asked Questions
-

How did we collect customer votes?

Mozo commissioned IPSOS, a globally recognised leader in survey management, to conduct a survey to measure people’s attitudes and opinions towards their current providers of a range of services.

A total of 3,690 individuals were surveyed in April 2019. Respondents were asked a series of questions about their satisfaction and experiences in the categories above.

In each area, people were asked to nominate the companies they use, and then to rank them out of 10 in a range of factors including overall customer satisfaction, service and whether they’d recommend them to others, and depending on the industry they were also asked to rate on things like product range, delivery service, friendliness and trust.

What providers were considered?

All providers of these services are eligible. The survey contained extensive lists of provider names to choose from, but respondents were also able to enter any that were not on the initial list.

How were the winners chosen?

The survey asked people to rate their provider on a range of different factors.

To determine award winners, the judges ranked all providers who received at least 30 responses in order by average rating. In each award category, the winners circle was chosen to reflect the top 10% of providers, however judge’s discretion was applied in various circumstances - including to reduce the number of winners when there was a clear gap between groups within the top 10%, to increase the number of winners when those just outside the 10% were equally worthy, and to extend winners lists, where a market is dominated by state-based providers so that the best nationally recognised brands could also feature.

While IPSOS conducted the survey and compiled the ratings, all decisions about the conferring of awards were Mozo’s responsibility.
