The San Diego Union Tribune Names Bill Howe Family of Companies 2015 Top Workplace

Multi award winning San Diego plumbing company named a best place to work for the third year in a row

November 10, 2015 San Diego, Calif. – The Bill Howe Family of Companies has been awarded a 2015 Top Workplaces honor by the San Diego Union Tribune. The Top Workplaces lists are bases solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few, and the local San Diego Plumbing company ranked for the third year in a row. TWP_SanDiego_Portrait_2015_AW

“The Top Workplaces is not a popularity contest. And, oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits, says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But, to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day–the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together.” Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named Top Workplace.”

Bill Howe began operations as a single truck, San Diego plumber in 1980. The company quickly grew, and he continued to build the Family of Companies over 35 years around his very simple mission: Create healthy and happy employees, provide the highest quality work and customer service, and give back to the San Diego community. The Bill Howe employees are the heart of that mission, and the company invests in them to ensure their health, happiness and success.

“Our employees are the most important asset at Bill Howe,” says Bill Howe, President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “We start with them, because we know if they are happy in their career, then they will provide our customers with outstanding service and help continue to grow the company. It all begins with them.” The San Diego plumber provides ample opportunities for employees to advance in their careers, including paying for 100 percent of the Journeyman Plumbing Program offered through the PHCC in San Diego. The company was also awarded a special recognition for their training.

Over the past five years, they have also created and nurtured a growing wellness program for the employees and their families in order to ensure they are remain healthy in a labor-intensive industry and are able to balance work and life, and enjoy their families. But, the most impressive aspect of the company remains the family atmosphere. Although they have grown to over 150 employees, they have not lost the small intimate and supportive environment that makes employees and their families feel like a true family within the company.

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.
