Welcome to our Findings page! Here you'll see samples of our generational, Millennial, and Gen Z research findings including white papers, infographics, and special reports. These publicly available findings were discovered through proprietary and client-sponsored research studies. While many of our clients share research findings to become recognized and verified thought leaders in their space, many more choose to keep the findings and data-based solutions confidential to build a competitive advantage. Whether your goal is thought leadership or direct ROI, our expert team can design an approach and custom solution that solve your challenge with measurable outcomes.

Research and Solutions That Solve Your Millennial, Gen Z, and Generational Challenges

Leaders everywhere face a growing, costly challenge with Millennials (aka Gen Y) and Gen Z (aka iGen). Younger generations communicate, work, shop, and buy differently than other generations, like Generation X and Baby Boomers. Strategies and tactics that worked five years ago can completely fail with younger generations, who have an increasingly stronger impact and determinant role in your business or organization. Leaders need original, custom research to make informed decisions and create specific, actionable solutions that can be used right away to drive measurable results. 

At The Center for Generational Kinetics, our expert team delivers measurable results for clients by leading uniquely designed research studies and then transforming the findings into thought leadership, strategies, tools, and solutions that drive ROI. Our clients range from software companies and global banks to automakers and brands you see at your local grocery store.
