It’s rare for a company to sustain double-digit growth year after year, while maintaining a close-knit culture. Being named a top 10 “Best Company to Work For in Oregon” for the seventh year in a row is a testament to the amazing team we’ve built over the years and their desire to protect what makes Ruby special.
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.
Last night, a group of 50 of our virtual receptionists and staff took the Oregon Convention Center by storm to celebrate at the Oregon Business magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For in Oregon” awards dinner. It was Ruby’s third year to make the list and as always, we brought our Ruby enthusiasm to the party!
50 excited Rubys stormed the stage with excitment to accept the award!
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!”
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!
