Company Launches Employee Biggest Loser Contest: “Howe Much Can You Lose?”

May 23, 2011, San Diego, Calif. – The Bill Howe Family of Companies has launched its own fitness challenge to encourage employees to lose weight, tone up and start feeling great. “Howe Much Can You Lose?” is a 12 week, voluntary competition for Bill Howe employees and their families. The winner will be chosen based on the percentage of weight lost and will win a year gym membership, a cash prize and office bragging rights.

To assist participants in their weight loss journey, Bill and Tina Howe have brought in experts Kerri Calver, massage therapist, holistic nutritionist and owner of A Better Balanced Body and her assistant, Gigi. Kerri and Gigi come into the office every week to weigh in the participants and offer fitness and nutrition advice for the group. Kerri also hosts weekly team workouts at Miramar Lake and offers side one-on-one counsel for employees.

Other perks of the contest include a group VIP membership discount at Road Runner Sports, one month membership to 24-Hour Fitness, and organized team workouts every week at Fiesta Island. Additionally, a breakfast buffet of fruit, yogurt and granola are offered to employees twice a week and a salad bar is hosted at the office once a month.

Bill Howe customers are also being encouraged to get involved. The company is creating a “Customer Cookbook” compiled of all of our customers’ favorite healthy recipes. Customers can submit their recipes to [email protected] and they will receive a gift card to Jamba Juice and a copy of the final recipe book.

In March 2011, the Bill Howe Family of Companies augmented their sponsorship of the American Heart Association’s Heart Beach Ball with the “Howe” Healthy is Your Heart Drawing Contest. The contest encouraged children throughout San Diego County to enter their drawing of a healthy heart and to describe how they keep their hearts healthy. This two month contest was a jump-start to the company’s fitness venture. The weight loss challenge is how they plan to keep the ball rolling.

There are many business benefits to encouraging employees to live active and healthy lifestyles. In addition to reducing the number or health benefit claims and employees calling in sick – productivity improves dramatically when employees are feeling their best. Energy levels increase while stress, anxiety and depression levels are reduced. Employees who are working to achieve optimal health also have an increase in metal clarity, vigor, speed and accuracy of mental calculations.

What Joel C says about us

Very Satisfied. Michael is always on time, Michael has been doing all of the plumbing related to our remodel. He always does exactly what he commits to do within the estimated cost. He keeps me informed if any wrinkles pop up, and his plumbing skills are excellent as we have had no problems or issues arise after he has left. Very professional! Highly recommend.

What Rick M says about us

We had other companies come out for estimates on what was considered a major job with jackhammers and replacing cast iron pipes under the house… having been stung before, we wanted another estimate just to make sure we were making an informed decision. The prior estimates went up to $21,000!
Bill Howe sent us an amazing veteran plumber, Dashawn and his co- worker Anthony. Dashawn did a thorough check of the problem, explained what he thought was needed … he did a final check and we were able to see for ourselves what was the problem. He recommended a complete cleaning to de-scale the pipes, and not the major work we dreaded. Thanks to his solid analysis and patience in making sure we saw what he saw, the issue was resolved completely, and saved us thousands of unnecessary work. None of the other estimates included the cleaning; only the major repairs. Thanks to Dashawn’s knowledge, professionalism and honesty, we’re Bill Howe customers.

What Carolyn Housman says about us

This was our second excellent experience with Bill Howe. We had a blocked kitchen sink drain 8/5. I was able to get a same day appointment which is AMAZING. Person on phone was very courteous and set me up right away. Tony arrived at the house (called me 30 minutes out so I was able to be ready). He diagnosed the issue (blocked drain, not the garbage compactor) and was able to snake it and ran the water for 10 minutes to be sure the drains were clear. He cleaned up everything and you would not have known he was even there. Thank-you Tony and Bill Howe, you always know how.

What Ed Gohlich says about us

Cory was our technician on this job. We had a time sensitive repair issue and Bill Howe understood and assisted with getting the job done quickly.
Cory was on time to start the job and finished it quickly. Upon his leaving our home he’s was courteous, very knowledgeable, explaining what the problem was and how he fixed it. Very good communication and this is the way it’s has always been when we use Bill Howe plumbing.
Great company to work with.
Thanks Cory.

What Bridgett says about us

I am extremely happy with the service we received from Bill Howe Plumbing. We were given an incorrect diagnosis of our main sewer line from another vendor, but Bill Howe’s servicemen came out for a second opinion, correctly diagnosed our problem and resolved our back up issues. We will continue to use Bill Howe for all our future plumbing needs!

Thank you Bill Howe Plumbing.
