Soup Day!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):
