Couchbase Awarded UK’s Best Workplaces™ Recognition

SANTA CLARA, CALIF. – April 27, 2022 – Couchbase, Inc. (NASDAQ: BASE), provider of a leading modern database for enterprise applications, today announced it has been recognised as the number 57 out of 105 of the UK’s Best Medium Size Workplaces™ (2022) by Great Place to Work®, the global authority on workplace culture.

93% of UK employees say that Coucbase is a great place to work in response to Great Place to Work’s 2022 survey, an outstanding achievement compared to 57% of UK employee favorability at a typical U.S.-based company. People, values, culture and team were the most frequently cited aspects across employee reviews that led to Couchbase’s strong showing.

“At Couchbase, we pride ourselves on our culture and values which extend across our Manchester and London offices as well as those working remotely in the UK,” said Huw Owen, Vice President and General Manager of EMEA, Couchbase. “This award is a testament to our world-class UK team and we’re continually investing in hiring top talent to build on this momentum. We are looking forward to expanding our team so we can continue to develop next-generation database technology for today’s leading modern enterprises. Thank you to all our employees who helped us achieve this award.”

“Even in times of uncertainty, at Best Workplaces™ the shared mantra of ‘purpose over profit’ has stood firm,” said Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work® UK. “We’re incredibly proud to recognise the 290 companies on our list for their outstanding workplace cultures, and unwavering commitment to supporting employees so they can deliver the best strategic solutions to ever-changing business opportunities and challenges.”

A great workplace is more than perks, parties and amazing benefits. While those elements are present in many Best Workplace™ organisations, at its core a great workplace is about the level of trust that employees experience in their leaders, the level of pride they have in their jobs; and the extent to which they experience camaraderie with their colleagues.

To determine the 2022 UK’s Best Workplaces™ list, Great Place to Work® performed rigorous evaluations of hundreds of employee survey responses alongside Culture Audit™ submissions from leaders at each company. They then used these data insights to benchmark the effectiveness of companies’ employee value propositions against the culture their employees actually experience.

Those businesses who achieve the highest scores after evaluation receive Best Workplaces™ status.
