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 David says about us

Service for new garbage disposal. My ancient garbage disposal quit working, went online to get Bill Howe’s number, immediately received and accepted chat to describe my needs. Prompt call back to schedule an appointment, service tech Allen was out same morning, which was important to fit my work schedule. Job estimate was clear, work done fully to my expectations, area left clean, and price was very fair.
I was not surprised — I have used Bill Howe plumbers for several other tasks in the past. I have always found their staff to be helpful, attentive, and the plumbers very courteous and capable.

I have been using Bill Howe since the late 1980’s, their service has always been excellent, plumbing, heating and restoration. I am most impressed by the integrity of their employees, not only do they know their work/skill, they do not waste time, they are so efficient, they are so helpful and they are a true “service”!

What Mira says about us

Bill Howe never fails us! We had a drain overflow, and Scott came (on a Saturday) to look at it and offer solution. He was punctual, professional, and extremely helpful. I should also praise the main office for always being helpful and always finding solutions. Very grateful to have you in San Diego!

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.
