Bill Howe Family of Companies Presents 13 Company Awards at Year-end Party

Well-known San Diego plumbing company created 13 new employee recognition awards, including San Diego plumber of the Year for 2014

December 23, 2014 San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe Family of Companies has become one of the largest family-owned and operated companies offering San Diego expert services in plumbing, heating & air conditioning and restoration & flood remediation. Part of the success of the well-established company has been the caliber of employee, and how well the employees are treated. Bill Howe hires San Diego plumbers, heating & air conditioning technicians, and water damage experts and then offers extensive training, consistent evaluation and growth opportunities and recognition to continue the company’s mission of creating happy and healthy employees.

Every year, the San Diego plumbing company hosts two major recognition events for the employees. In the summer, it is a family-focused affair with fun & games for kids, spouses and extended family members. But at the end of the year, they host an extravagant gala event to say thank you and spotlight the employees. The Bill Howe Recognition Party is always held at a large hotel, and includes gifts, dinner, dancing and special awards as a way for the San Diego plumber, Bill Howe and his wife, Tina, to say thank you. Spouses and significant others are invited to the formal event, which is usually themed and the company has also paid for hotel rooms the  past two years for all employees who wished to stay the night.

The 2014 Bill Howe Recognition Party was held at the Hilton Del Mar, and the year’s theme was, Disco Lightning. Employees dressed to the nines (and the seventies!) and were even treated to entertainment by “Tony Manero,” a Saturday Night Fever style performer. But the highlight of this year’s event was the creation and presentation of the first annual “Most Valuable Player” awards at Bill Howe.

The 2014 “MOP” awards were created to recognize the most “outstanding” technician/employee of the year and awards were presented in the following categories: Heating & Air Conditioning, Plumbing, Drain, Restoration (water), Reconstruction, Office and a special “Volunteer of the Year.” In addition to the company sponsored awards, each of the five Team Leaders in the plumbing division of Bill Howe presented a “Team Leader Choice” award to one of their team members for outstanding service, attitude, workmanship and overall performance for the year.  Each of the 2014 honorees were presented with an engraved crystal award and were recognized in the 2014 Yearbook.

“We have always done fun awards and special recognitions at our year-end party,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of the Howe Family of Companies. “This year we wanted to raise the bar and recognize employees who have consistently exceeded the Bill Howe standards. It was a difficult task to choose each honoree, and we are excited to make this an annual tradition.”

The 2014 “MOP” Award recipients are: Doug Bock, Volunteer of the Year, Melissa Taylor, Office Employee of the Year, Dustin Hollenbeck, HVAC Tech of the Year, Charles Lopez, Drain Tech of the Year, Amber Breer, Reconstruction Employee of the Year, Juan Santacruz, Restoration (water) Tech of the Year and Bill Howe’s San Diego plumber of the Year, Raul Miranda.

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.
