Any business is only as good as its employees. That means creating the best possible working environment for those employees, nurturing them into a winning team, and giving them every opportunity to fulfil their potential. But it’s one thing to say this, and another to have it confirmed by employees themselves.
So, we’re delighted that with the unveiling of The 2022 UK’s Best Workplaces™ in Tech list, Couchbase has been officially ranked 36th in the best medium-sized tech workplace category.
The list, compiled by Great Place to Work® UK, uses anonymous feedback from employees to rank 140 organisations based on working environments. This year, nearly 20,000 employees across the industry took part to provide on-the-ground insights into the tech industry.
Our position on this well-respected list reflects the value, trust, and positivity that our 160 UK employees experience within the business. Every day the Couchbase team attacks challenges head on, refuses to take the easy option, and strives to help our customers innovate at great speed.
As our Couchbase staff are at the heart of our enviable workplace environment, they help to instil our key company values in everything we do. These are:
- Be A Great Human, Always.
- Act With Uncompromising Integrity, Period.
- Serve Your Family, As Defined By You.
- Attack Hard Problems, Driven By Customer Outcomes.
- Play To Win, Together.
- Make Tomorrow Better Than Today, Start Now.
With all our staff working collectively towards these goals, the entire business benefits. Our leading position in the industry is unachievable without a world class team driving better outcomes and doing so with trust and respect for each other.
We are delighted with this workplace recognition. Highlights from the feedback recognise a healthy work-life balance, the importance of personal development, and the excitement we all share at channelling collective genius to solve the industry’s hardest problems.
As an organisation, we aim to ensure that all our staff feel supported as they seek to fulfil their maximum potential. We are constantly striving to improve, which is why this move to assess the feedback of staff and benchmark ourselves against others in the industry is so important.
Thank you to everyone across the organisation who engaged with the survey and who help us every day to create a great workplace for all.
