The accelerating rate at which new technology is introduced to the public has created a divide between how different generations prefer to communicate – and not just with their friends and family.

Millennials, those born between 1980 and 1994 have penetrated the workforce, and their increases in income has resulted in $200 billion in annual buying power. This generation continues to grow at an alarming rate, becoming the biggest generation in the workforce for the first time in 2016.

It’s no surprise that millennials are on multiple channels and devices simultaneously, are tech savvy but are infamous for being a time poor generation. They’ve grown up with information at their fingertips, and stiff competition amongst companies to provide the fastest, most effortless experience possible. These “kings of customer experience” are constantly raising the bar of customer expectations with time-saving offers like one-click purchasing, same day delivery, or 24×7 on-demand chat service. 25% of millennials expect a response within 10 minutes after reaching out.

Take the Couple Checkup

The Couple Checkup generates deep and productive conversations that couples would not otherwise have about their relationship. These conversations restore insight and understanding about one another. The Couple Checkup can help to revive a relationship and increase intimacy.

The Couple Checkup is an online couple assessment based on the PREPARE/ENRICH couple inventories. The Checkup assessment and Checkup report are designed to go directly to couples at any stage of their relationship (dating, engaged or married). The online system allows for dynamic customization of the assessment to each couple based on how the couple answers background questions. The goal is for the Couple Checkup to reach a more diverse group of couples, to empower couples to deal with issues on their own and to emphasize prevention over remediation.
