Our team of virtual receptionists is great at cheerful, professional phone answering and many of us also have a soft spot for animals (as you might have noticed when we walked in the Doggie Dash benefit!), so we were delighted to be able to lend our skills to help the Oregon Humane Society with their annual telethon this year! On Sunday, eight of Ruby® Receptionists’ finest (and two honorary Ruby pooches, Ellie and Bernie) volunteered to take calls at the OHS phone bank.
Ruby®‘s virtual receptionist service recently moved to snazzy new digs in Portland, Oregon’s Pearl District, and we’d like to invite you to join us at our new location for a meet and greet!
If you’re in the Portland area, we’d love for you to enjoy a glass of wine with us, get to know the Ruby team, and see where all the Ruby magic happens!
On Saturday, our team of top-notch virtual receptionists celebrated the summer in true Ruby® style and set sail for nautical party down Portland’s Willamette River. Our team commits each day to the Ruby mission of making people’s days brighter, and this was our chance to give back to them and celebrate those efforts! We had a fabulous evening full of smiles, laughter, and beautiful views of our beloved city. Check out the photos:
Next Thursday, Ruby® Receptionists is proud to be sponsoring a special screening of Academy Award® nominated director Roko Belic’s new film HAPPY – and you’re invited! Quite a few Rubys will be in attendance, and if you’re in the Portland area, we would love for you to come with us, on the house!
As you may have guessed, the film focuses on one of our favorite Core Values — happiness!
It’s that time again! Time for our virtual receptionists to step out of the office and onto the field for our favorite summer pastime — kickball! This will be the third year in a row that the Ruby Death Squad has participated in the Underdog Sports tournament. The team has been a fantasic way for us to Create Community and build teamwork, and it also adds a real “kick” to our wellness campaign.
Today, our hardworking virtual receptionists are celebrating our third annual Soup Day! Soup Day is a Ruby® Receptionists tradition of sorts. Three years ago, on a particularly rainy January day, a few generous team members decided to foster a little happiness in our office by bringing in a few crockpots of soup to share…little did they know, that little generosity would spark an office tradition. The first improptu Soup Day was such a hit, we have made it an annual tradition that our team of virtual receptionists look forward to all year!
Our administrative, management, and support staff picks a day in January to surprise our phone answering pros with a buffet of soups to warm their days. It’s a fabulously easy event to plan, and costs next to nothing for the company, but the impact is huge! Try it in your office — I promise it will put a smile on your employees’ faces! To get you started, here is Ruby’s Receptionist Services Director Jewel Miller’s recipe for a delicious vegan butternut squash soup (click for a larger view):
