Optimizing Workspace by Design


Pepperdine recognizes the interrelationship between the physical environment and the human condition, and is dedicated to ensuring the satisfaction, happiness, and fulfillment of all community members.

At Work

In acknowledging that the surrounding environment directly impacts our emotional state, customer service, inspiration, productivity, creativity and efficiency, all employees are encouraged to intentionally design their workspaces to meet these criteria.

Around Campus

Aside from personal workspaces, Pepperdine boasts one of the most beautiful campuses in the world in Malibu and well-maintained campuses throughout Southern California. Pepperdine spaces, both inside and outside, establish a sense of professionalism, hospitality, and well-being for employees, students and guests alike.

Design Consultation Services

Human Resources has teamed with the Department of Design and Construction, and is pleased to extend consultative services to Pepperdine University departments and employees. Our offices are equipped to help in the design, layout, and effectiveness of personal or communal workspaces for our community members. Facilitating office space arrangements, improving workspace communication, and establishing productive and efficient practices are all considered and included in a workspace consultation.

The effects of this service go far beyond ensuring that Pepperdine maintains high-quality spaces, as mentioned above. This service has been successfully implemented to reduce absenteeism, increase productivity, and instill greater confidence in the quality of work of our institution.

A pleasing and welcoming environment is a great way to enhance the experience at Pepperdine for employees, co-workers, students and visitors to our community.
