The Company Or the Crowd? the Impact of Customer-Led Service Recovery on Satisfaction

This research explores the impact of identity on service recovery satisfaction. Study 1 shows that when recovery fails, consumers prefer customer-provided solutions. Community connectedness mediates this effect. Study 2 shows that consumers’ pursuit of individualistic goals attenuates this effect. Study 3 proposes that increasing participants’ effort mitigates community connectedness’ effect.
