The Bill Howe Family of Companies Celebrates Operations Manager, Transitions to Human Resources

Family-owned and operated San Diego plumbing company updates human resources department in 2014

February 28, 2014 San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe Plumbing began as a father and son operation in 1980. They opened the doors of a small studio apartment and began what is now a well-established low cost and family owned San Diego plumbing company, with three divisions serving the needs of heating & air conditioning and restoration and flood services. For over 34 years, Bill Howe Family of Companies has consistently progressed forward improving services offered as well as the internal structure of the company.

019_resizedAmber Baynard, former Operations Manager, spent 2013 in the Human Resources Management Certificate Program through the San Diego Employment Association in order to transition into her new role as the head of the Human Resources Department in 2014. Amber is San Diego plumber, Bill Howe’s niece and she has been an integral part of successfully retaining the small “family operation” the local community has come to rely on since 1980. She began her career with Bill Howe Plumbing in 1997 as a part-time file clerk and customer service representative. After implantation of new software, that she helped train all staff on, it became apparent she was an invaluable asset and was hired on full time.

Since 1997, Baynard has worked in virtually every position at the San Diego plumbing Company and has used this experience as an advantage in Human Resources. “HR was the last part of the corporation that I was unfamiliar with, said Amber Baynard, Human Resources Manager. “I am excited for the opportunity and believe that it is a position best served with my intimate knowledge of the company and culture over the last 17 years.”

The restructuring of the Human Resources Department brings a clear channel of communication within the company and a direct place in which all employees can direct questions and needs. The implementation of dedicated HR also allows the company to stay abreast of the ever-changing laws that affect everything from wages, benefits, and on the job safety to the hot button topic that affects everyone across the country, health care.

“Since joining us at eighteen, Amber has been a big part of our growth and success,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “We are excited for her new role in continuing the advancement of our company. We are dedicated to providing, not only the best services in San Diego, but also providing the best environment for our employees, and her new role and dedication to the company will help us achieve our goals.”

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.

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.
