Customer choice behavior in the delivery phase of online grocery shopping: pick-up points vs. home delivery
A lot of research has already been done on online shopping, but online grocery shopping is a quite recent development and there are still a lot of gaps in the literature. In particular, regarding the delivery phase of online grocery shopping. Hence in this research a survey with a stated choice experiment has been conducted to ascertain preferences of respondents for the delivery phase of online grocery shopping. In total 537 respondents filled in the survey and differences were found between respondents living in rural and urban areas. These differences were not only found in socio-demographics, psychographics and general shopping orientation, but also in the respondent’s choice behavior in the delivery phase of online grocery shopping. This research distinguishes different segments of respondents.

Overall, the people interested in online grocery shopping seem to be quite small (less than 30 percent of the population). Retailers should focus on younger grocery shoppers and shoppers who are used to ordering products online. Combining services can be a good idea for companies who own as well online grocery shops as electronic or fashion shops online. Customers who ordered online before, and frequent users are way more likely to order online again.

Attracting and retaining millennials: The contribution of corporate real estate
The overall workforce is declining and the composition of the workforce is shifting. This shift within the workforce is caused by the upcoming generation of millennials (generation with a birth cohort from 1980 to 1998). Organizations value their employees as one of their key assets and continuously seek for the best potential talent. In order to attract and retain talented millennials, the work environment has to support the needs of this generation. Corporate Real Estate Management (CREM) is concerned with creating a workplace that supports the needs of employees and thus also has a role in this study. However, little is known about the relation between the needs of millennials and the possible support by CREM.

The available literature about the needs of millennials and the possible support of those needs by CREM to attract and retain them, is limited. Most studies only focus on the physical aspects of the workplace in general or only on the characteristics and needs of millennials. Research about the relation between those two subjects is very limited. Besides, studies that focus on the millennial generation and their needs and characteristics, show inconsistencies and contradictions. Also, most of those studies are written by consultants and do not have an academic background. This study tries to cover that gap in literature. To be able to contribute to attracting and retaining millennials, it should be clear which physical workplace aspects CREM should manage in order to create a work environment that supports the needs of millennials. The objective of this research is to provide CREM with insight in how to attract and retain millennials. The research question that follows from this objective is: Which physical workplace aspects contribute to attracting and retaining millennials?

The added value of shared facilities and services on science parks
In this thesis, research was done into the added value of shared facilities and services on science parks in the Netherlands. Science parks are highly valued by resident organizations for their shared (R&D) facilities and open innovation culture. However, research into users’ perceived benefits of shared facilities and services is very limited, while this is one of the unique elements of science parks. Therefore, this research explores resident organizations’ perceived benefits of shared facilities and services on science parks in the Netherland and to what extend this is related to their characteristics.

Literature review resulted in a comprehensive inventory of shared facilities and services and resident organizations’ perceived benefits of science parks. A questionnaire, based on this inventory, was distributed among decision makers of resident organizations. This resulted in a dataset from a sample group of 103 respondents, spread over seven Dutch science parks. A cluster analysis was used to divide the sample group in clusters, a chi-square analysis to test these clusters on significant differences and the Lift ratio was used to assess the resident organizations’ perceived benefits of shared facilities and services.
