Bill Howe Family of Companies Mandates Special Training for All Supervisors

Local San Diego plumbing company requires all supervisors to complete mandatory harassment and discrimination prevention training

August 11, 2015 San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe Family of Companies has been one of the leading service companies offering highly trained technicians in San Diego plumbing, heating, cooling and restoration services. For 35 years, they have nurtured growth in the company while instilling only the highest standards for employee and customer relations.  Every year, the company offers several education and  training seminars for all employees in San Diego including plumbers, HVAC technicians and restoration specialists, as well as management training and specialized seminars to maintain the highest ethics in the community.

Harassment and discrimination prevention training for supervisors was held over two days the first week in August for all Bill Howe supervisors, managers and team leaders. The training course is a legal requirement under the California Fair Employment Act and must be taken every two calendar years. All supervisors who: direct the work of other employees, hires, fires or disciplines other employees, and/or makes recommendations for the aforementioned are required to attend these trainings. Additionally, all new supervisors must receive the training within 6 months of assuming new supervisory roles. The Harassment training was administered at the Bill Howe family of Companies office in San Diego. It was an interactive participation based program.

Since the company recently appointed 5 new San Diego plumbers as team leaders, they chose to move forward with the harassment training for everyone at the same time, renewing earlier supervisor’s training ahead of schedule and giving the new team leaders the tools to be great leaders in the company.

“It is extremely important to us to have all of our supervisors and managers attend this training seminar,” said Amber Baynard, Human Resources Manager. “This course covers so much, and empowers our leaders in the company to protect our employees, as well as our customers and community.” Harassment training covers not only sexual harassment, but protects persons from discrimination based on race, national origin, marital status, age, religion, breastfeeding mothers, disability, sexual orientation, citizenship status, ancestry and more. It is especially important with a company providing a service in the community, since employees meet and deal with many different people with differing beliefs and lifestyles.

“It is imperative that we are maintaining the highest ethical standards in how we interact with our employees and our customers and community members,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of Bill Howe family of Companies. “We are providing services in people’s homes and we want them to feel comfortable and protected by our staff, they need to know that we respect and value them and will act with professionalism and adherence to the law.”

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.
