Bill Howe Plumbing, one of the largest family-owned and operated plumbing, heating & air conditioning and restoration & flood services company in San Diego honored with a second award for their commitment to wellness in the workplace by the San Diego North Chamber of Commerce (SDNCC). Bill Howe Plumbing began with one plumber and has grown to over 60 plumbers. San Diego also benefits from the two newer divisions, Bill Howe Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc and Bill Howe Restoration & Flood Services, Inc. creating the one-stop shop of home service needs as a family of companies dedicated to excellence. They have been honored with several awards in 2013 including, IT of the Year, San Diego’s Healthiest Companies, the Rotary Club 33 Heilbron Community Service Awards as well as being named one of the top 100 Best Places to Work in San Diego.

The SDNCC held the award ceremony at their “Celebration of Business” on Saturday June 22, at the Rancho Bernardo Inn and was hosted by Kim Coles, actress from In Living Color and Living Single. The celebration highlighted the achievements of the best and brightest in the north county business community, awarding in nine categories including Business leader of the year, which Bill Howe won in 2012 and the inaugural Workplace Wellness Champion Awarded to the company this year. The SDNCC is a steward for the business community supporting businesses of every size with a keen focus on the improvement of the local community as respected advisors, partners and advocates.

This is the second wellness award for the San Diego Plumber for 2013. In May, the Bill Howe Family of Companies was chosen as San Diego’s Healthiest Company in the medium sized business category by the San Diego Business Journal. Bill Howe Plumbing has introduced a new wellness program for 2013 that includes full biometric testing for all employees, on site fitness training, nutrition education and private wellness consultations. The wellness initiatives and incentives are available to 100 percent of employees as well as their families. San Diego plumber, Bill Howe, and his wife Tina, incoming President of the Plumbing-Heating- Cooling-Contracting Association, San Diego were present to receive the wellness champion award on Saturday.

“We have been in business for over thirty years with a very low rate of turnover in our employees,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of Bill Howe Plumbing. “We’re facing an aging workforce in a labor-intensive industry. We want our employees, and our industry, to enjoy a long healthy life beyond retirement with their families. It is up to us to take charge and initiate a program to engage them in their own well-being and set them up for success.”
