100 Best Green Companies to Work

Yesterday, several Rubys, including our Green Team, took the local streetcar down to the Portland Art Museum to attend Oregon Business magazine’s annual 100 Best Green Companies to Work for in Oregon” luncheon. We were thrilled that our virtual receptionist service made the list for the second year in a row, and we’re honored that Ruby® placed #35 on this year’s list!

The event was a great way to inspire our team, and anecdotes from top 10 winners and the keynote speaker, Dennis Wilde with Gerding Edlen Development, sparked new ideas about what we can do next to make our company even more sustainable. Many of their stories included mentions of how their receptionists took going green to new levels. It made me think, with all of our virtual receptionists, who knows where we can go from here?!

We’d also like to give a shout out to Ater Wynne, our upstairs neighbor in the LEED certified Lovejoy building, and our neighbor on the “Green” list, coming in at #34! Congratulations as well to Sokol Blosser Winery who earned the #5 spot on the list and whom we met on the “100 Best Companies to Work For” ski trip!

Thank you to all of our virtual receptionists and staff for all your hard work in making Ruby green! Whether it’s printing double-sided, recycling, participating in a green clothing swap, taking advantage of our Alternative Transportation program, or making DIY notepads, we appreciate all of your green efforts!
