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 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.
