The Bill Howe Family of Companies Recognized in Local Healthy Company Awards Third Year in a Row

Local San Diego a/c repair & plumbing company continues to make wellness priority in 2015

May 13, 2015 San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe Family of Companies, one of San Diego’s largest family-owned businesses, has been offering expert services for 35 years. Started by a San Diego plumber and 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 business owners and residents’ home care needs. Part of their success has been a consistent focus on creating a culture within the company to retain quality employees who in turn deliver quality service to the community.

In 2012, the San Diego a/c and plumbing repair company hired professional wellness coaches, BARR Corporate Health, and instituted a full wellness program. And in 2015, they have brought all of the Bill Howe Wellness endeavors in house routing a larger budget to events such as coed softball and quarterly wellness events for the employees and their family in San Diego. A/C specialists and plumbers who work in attics year round benefit from the added focus on well-being. Prior to the professional program, the Bill Howe Family of Companies sponsored several small initiatives to boost the culture of wellness and promote active lifestyles, but it didn’t resonate and take permanent hold. “We have an aging workforce in a labor intensive industry,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “Part of our mission has always been to create happy and healthy employees, especially in an often hectic and busy work environment. There has to be a balance and time for everyone to spend with their loved ones.”

The San Diego Business Journal’s Healthiest Companies Award Program is in its fourth  year and recognizes companies who incorporate wellness and healthy lifestyle promotions into their everyday culture. The San Diego plumber received the first place recognition in 2013 for medium sized business categories for their efforts in the first year of their full wellness program, a finalist’s recognition in 2014 and have once again made the list as one of San Diego’s Healthiest. New initiatives implemented this year include 100 percent healthy on site vending, restructured activity events, wellness weaved into team leader job descriptions and the first ever coed softball team of employees and their family members.

The Healthiest Company Award Ceremony was held on May 7 at the Paradise Point Resort & Spa. The San Diego plumber was ranked in the medium sized business category once again and was up against companies with up to 1000 employees. “We are proud of all of our employees who continue to make healthy choices each day,” said Tina Howe. “It is not always easy, but the return is knowing you will have a full life with your loved ones now and after retirement, and our team certainly deserves great rewards for their hard work.”

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.
