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.
“’Coming to work is like being hugged by 100 wonderful people all at once!’ said one employee…Asked how the company could improve, workers are hard pressed. ‘Water slides!’ suggests one.” There could only be one company with survey responses like these.
The crowd began to erupt into applause and peels of delight. “Ruby Receptionists is the #3 best medium-sized company to work for in Oregon!”
We’re thrilled that we’ve made Oregon Business magazine’s list of “100 Best Companies to Work for in Oregon” for 2102! Since one of our Core Values is Fostering Happiness and the ranking is dependent on employee surveys, this is a particularly meaningful award for us.
This is our third year to have made the list, and last year we were overjoyed to be named the #2 “Best Company to Work For” in the medium-sized business category. In fact, almost forty Rubys attended, and we gave a raucous roar when our name was announced; our virtual receptionists may have soft, friendly voices when answering phones but we also know how to cheer with the best of them!
“You want to know how to get a crowd going? Say one word: Ruby.”
That’s how Oregon Business Editor in Chief, Robin Doussard, kicked off her presentation last night night amidst cheers… and this was even before we learned where we ranked! The whole group from Ruby® Receptionists was absolutely thrilled when they announced that Ruby is the #2 medium-sized “Best Company to Work For in Oregon!”
As you probably know, Ruby® has once again been named one of the “100 Best Companies to Work for in Oregon” by Oregon Business magazine, and the whole phone answering team is pleased as punch about it! This year, in addition to the honor, we got an invitation from Mount Hood Meadows to spend a day celebrating with them and enjoying a bit of skiing! Ruby founder and CEO Jill Nelson opened it up to the whole office, and we held a raffle to pick the attendees. Three of our lovely virtual receptionists — Jami R., Amanda S., and Michele H. — joined me on a trip to the mountains.
We met some wonderful people, were treated to delicious food, took in some breathtaking views, and were given a beginner’s ski lesson. None of us were very good skiiers when we arrived, but we had great instructors and ended up having a ball! We are so fortunate that our virtual receptionist service is one of the “100 Best Companies to Work For” and, in meeting some of the other nominees on this trip, we’re definitely part of a fantiastic assembly of companies and people!
