Happy Secretary’s Day! As one of our favorite holidays, our fantastic virtual receptionist team celebrated by dressing up in vintage chic and holding a bake-off with some homemade goodies. Check out the Ruby Facebook page for a few more photos of the fun!
Ruby’s General Manager Diana Stepleton and I are glad to be attending the ABA TECHSHOW for our third year! We always love getting to see some of our clients in person, and we look forward to meeting a few new faces this year.
As our Beaverton Site Director, Ang Gray, likes to say, we do things “funly but with seriousness” at Ruby.

Our fifth consecutive year on Oregon Business magazine’s list, Ruby is one of the top ten Best Large Companies to Work for in Oregon! Oregon Business compiled the list based on surveys from 11,186 employees representing 248 companies statewide. This is the first time Ruby joined the large business category, and we were honored that our staff ranked us among the likes of Levi Strauss & Co. and Umpqua Bank.
Dress for Success Oregon “Fast Track” series Beaverton mentor and graduates
Dress for Success Oregon’s programs help many local women gain economic independence, and it’s an organization close to our hearts at Ruby. When we heard they were looking to help make their services more accessible to those outside the Portland metro area, we knew we wanted to help! In January, we were happy to host a group of six clients at our Beaverton location for DFS’s “Fast Track” series, featuring intensive job search workshops.

Virtual receptionist Sara-Lee is quickly approaching her sixth year at Ruby, and recently returned to us from a whirlwind sabbatical in Paris! With Ruby’s “Five at Five” sabbatical program, for every five years of employment, team members receive five weeks of paid time off, plus coaching sessions and a $1,000 grant to turn their dreams into a reality. We know that when our employees are happy and growing personally and professionally, they’re more likely to go above and beyond for callers and clients — it’s a win-win! Sara-Lee sat down with us to chat about what her Parisian sabbatical meant to her….
Happy New Year’s Eve! We’re excited for what the new year will bring, so we asked our team what they’d like to accomplish in 2014. Here are some of their fantastic resolutions:
Wishing you all the best this holiday season!
Just a friendly reminder, Ruby will be closing early at 3:00pm Pacific (6:00pm Eastern) today and will remain closed all day tomorrow, December 25th, so that our virtual receptionists can enjoy some eggnog and spend time with their families for the Christmas holiday. During this time, calls will be answered according to your after-hours instructions.
Ruby volunteers and friends
Each year around the holidays, Ruby’s virtual receptionists and staff gather at the Oregon Food Bank to package food for those in need. This year, we expanded our tradition: Since we added a second office in nearby Beaverton, Oregon, we decided to volunteer in each city and support both our local communities!
