Bill Howe Plumbing Named Best Places to Work in San Diego 2013

Family-owned and Operated San Diego Plumbing Company Makes Top 100 Best Places List Third Time

Best Places to Work Logo 2013

June 25, 2013, 2013 San Diego, Calif. – For the third time, the Bill Howe Family of Companies has been named one of San Diego’s best places to work by the San Diego Business Journal.   The San Diego plumber, Bill Howe, began his operations in Pacific Beach in 1980 with one truck. The company has since grown into one of the largest family-owned and operated service companies serving San Diego with over 85 service trucks across three divisions: plumbing, heating & air conditioning, and restoration & flood services.

The San Diego Business Journal’s Best Places to Work in San Diego Award is presented to 100 of the “Best” San Diego employers based on a two-part assessment of the company and an in-depth and confidential employee surveys completed by the companies’ employees. The award identifies and recognizes companies exemplifying excellence in the workplace. Results of the assessment and employee responses are analyzed and categorized in eight key focus areas by The Best Companies Group: Leadership and Planning, Corporate Culture and Communications, Role Satisfaction, Work Environment, Relationship with Supervisor, Training and Development, Pay and Benefits and Overall Engagement.

The Bill Howe Family of Companies has made the list for the third time since the program came to San Diego five years ago. The San Diego plumbing company was recognized in the top 20 in 2010 and made the list a second time in 2011. Bill and Tina Howe remain as an active part of running the family-owned company. Leading by example, they have created an atmosphere engaging 100 percent of the staff in their mission of providing the best services to the local community. They boast a very low rate of turnover and high employee satisfaction; when asked, the majority of employees site “a true family environment” and “a company that cares” as the best part of working for the Bill Howe Family of Companies. Bill and Tina have also added a premium wellness program for the 2013 year to focus on creating a stronger culture of well-being for their employees’ future that has also garnered two workplace wellness awards by the San Diego North Chamber of Commerce and The San Diego Business Journal. In 2012, the San Diego plumbing company made their largest move on their thirty-year history and did not participate in the program.

“Our employees are our biggest asset,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of The Bill Howe Family of Companies. “We are honored to learn that we are succeeding in our mission to ensure their health, happiness and success in their careers. We are proud of our team and look forward to continued growth.”

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.
