ONE IN THREE MILLENNIALS ONLY MAKE TWO PHONE CALLS A WEEK: ARE THEY MISSING A TRICK?

  • Almost one in three millennials use their mobiles to make calls no more than twice a week
  • Evidence suggests negative millennial attitudes toward phone calls
  • Such attitudes could harm a young people’s chances of success in certain sectors
  • Business leaders comment on how best to encourage the age bracket to communicate confidently

A survey conducted by virtual receptionist providers CALLCARE has shown that nearly one in three millennials do not use their mobiles to make calls, opting instead for messaging apps and email communications.

At most, 18-24 year olds make calls twice a week, which considering the age group’s closeness to technology, is very low. The survey, alongside wider research on the subject indicates a real distaste toward telephone conversation among young people.
