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 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!

Restoration & Flood

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.
