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 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.
