Bill Howe Plumbing Honored with First Place as One of San Diego’s Healthiest Companies

Well-established San Diego Air Conditioning and Plumbing Company Recognized for its Wellness Initiatives with Local Award

San Diego's Healthiest Company Award

May 14, 2013 San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe Plumbing’s Family of Companies, one of San Diego’s largest family-owned businesses, has been offering expert services since 1980. Started by just one plumber, San Diego entrepreneur Bill Howe, the company quickly grew and has added heating and air conditioning and restoration and flood divisions creating a one-stop shop for San Diego residents’ home care needs. In addition to a mission for excellence in service, the San Diego air conditioning company seeks to pave the way for wellness in the trade industry with Tina Howe spearheading wellness initiatives in her new role as President of the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling-Contractors Association, San Diego division.

The Bill Howe Wellness team was present at the awards ceremony held on May 9, 2013 and it was a proud moment as they accepted the First Place Honor in the Third Annual San Diego’s Healthiest Companies sponsored by the San Diego Business Journal. The recognition honors local companies that implement strategies to improve health and wellness within their organization by developing workplace wellness programs and prioritizing health for their employees. Local businesses chosen as finalists and honored as winners in each category represent a group focused on health as a top priority, involve leader support and participation and create a culture of healthy lifestyles. As part of the criteria for receiving such an honor, companies must collect, analyze and measure the success of their investments into the wellness programs showing meaningful  results.

This is Bill Howe’s Family of Companies’ second time represented as a healthy-minded company. Promoting healthy and active lifestyles has been a key focus and goal for the local plumber. San Diego offers a wealth of resources for companies, and for the first year, Bill Howe hired BARR Workplace Wellness catapulting their existing wellness initiatives to a whole new level. “The clear sign of a successful wellness program is a high level of participation, and already Bill Howe is off to a running start with their efforts,” says Korben Konrady, CEO of BARR Corporate Health Coaches. “Our consulting team has designed a program that has already touched 100 percent of the employees by prescribing a combination of mandatory and voluntary programs.”

“It is such an honor to be recognized as one of San Diego’s healthiest companies. We want to encourage healthy active lifestyles for our company, families and our industry,” says Tina Howe, Bill Howe Wellness Committee Chairman and Vice President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “Having always focused on well-being, we have enlisted outside experts this year to ensure our team receives the best in wellness; after all, our employees are our family and we want to see them enjoy their lives well beyond retirement.”

BARR Workplace Wellness Coaches are on site each week providing one-on-one health consultations, implementing stretching and workplace safety initiatives and supporting the Bill Howe Wellness Committee in their efforts to create a well-being culture in the company. The Bill Howe Family of Companies has a detailed health action plan including on site fitness such as yoga instruction, nutrition education and full biometrics screenings. Employees have also taken up the wellness torch as champions hosting events outside of work, such as a weekend hike at the newly opened Cowles Mountain Memorial Day Weekend. It is inspiring to see how they are supporting each other in making health priority.

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.
