Report on Millennial Generation Captures Data from More Than 600,000 Survey Respondents across 15 Different Industries
WESTLAKE, Calif.: 29 March 2016 — J.D. Power today released the first-ever Millennials Insight Report: The Customer Experience Perspective,SM defining the quintessential makeup and customer experience preferences of Millennials—those born between 1982 and 1994—to help companies understand, predict and satisfy the future wants and needs of one of the largest, most unique and ethnically diverse generations in U.S. history.
Considered the most comprehensive report on Millennials to date, the inaugural report is based on in-depth proprietary benchmark research, analyses and insights gleaned from more than 600,000 consumer responses (126,315 from Millennial consumers) and interviews with verified customers derived from nearly two dozen J.D. Power syndicated studies conducted in 2015 in the United States.
“So much has been written about Millennials, yet much of the information provided is just one very small slice of their total makeup and is often limited to just one industry,” said Jay Meyers, Ph.D., vice president, analytical center of excellence division at J.D. Power. “The Millennials Insight Report is a one-of-a-kind analysis providing a 360 degree perspective and showing that the Millennial generation is a heterogeneous group that is simultaneously very different from and—in some ways—very similar to other generations of U.S. consumers. For businesses catering to this generation, the insights uncovered in our report provide a starting point for understanding the nuanced approach required to build real, lasting engagement.”
The full report contains a wide range of data points and analyses that capture Millennials’ Voice of the Customer experience, covering such business segments as automotive, banking, credit card, hotel, wireless, investments, primary mortgage and health insurance, as well as Internet and media usage.
Following is a sampling of the report’s highlights:
“Our studies indicate that Millennials are different from previous generations; however, it’s really the nuances of the customer experience that set them apart from the rest,” said Keith Webster, senior vice president and general manager, service industries Americas at J.D. Power. “And it’s those nuances that are so critical for business leaders to know right now as they wrestle with the challenge of anticipating customer demand in an incredibly fast-moving marketplace where getting it wrong can have catastrophic effects. We believe this research helps to demystify the Millennial generation by offering concrete data on their real-world consumer interactions.”
By digging deeper than ever before into the Millennial customer experience, the Millennials Insight Report delivers a detailed look into the hearts and minds of this chronically misunderstood generation. For companies that want their brand promises to resonate with Millennials, understanding the subtleties and nuances that both differentiate and connect this generation with others—as well as providing products and services that cater to their individual requirements—is essential.
