We all want to enjoy safety and health, but more importantly, we work hard and we want to see all our employees enjoy all of their hard work after retirement. - Tina Howe

Named San Diego Business Journal’s Healthiest Company in 2011 and a finalist in the 2013 recognition, Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. has long been a champion of wellness in the workplace and community. Spearheaded by Tina Howe, the new culture of wellness seeks to raise the quality of life of its plumbers. San Diego offers many resources, and together with BARR Wellness, the company hired by Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc., the company will reach out to other industry leaders and implement well-being into the fabric of the contracting trade. Aligning directly with their three-tiered mission beginning with the health and happiness of their employees, Bill Howe Plumbing is on the forefront of bringing wellness to a sector in desperate need.

BARR Wellness is a local company that Tina has brought on board to help take Bill Howe Plumbing’s culture of well-being to a higher level. Part of the partnership is a full biometrics and risk-assessment screening for all 120 employees of Bill Howe as well as personal and confidential consultations to ensure the program is tailored towards individual interests and needs. Bill Howe Plumbing will sponsor nutrition and fitness courses and educational seminars through a dedicated wellness committee and have already generated an excitement and buzz from employees.

Part of this increased culture of wellness for Bill Howe Plumbing is born from an awareness of the lack of industry standards. The work is labor-intensive and grueling. In the HVAC department, some of these people are crawling in attics in the hottest seasons for air conditioning repair. San Diego may have a better than most climate, but summer time still sees deadly temperatures in certain situations and can be dangerous if technicians are not well informed, working at their optimal health level and well-supported by their company.

In addition to safety and health for their own employees, Bill Howe Plumbing has an increased focus in implementing well-being into the industry. As Tina Howe prepares to take on the role of President in the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling-Contractor’s Association, San Diego, she wants to help all companies to make wellness second nature. By taking on this new role in the PHCC, Tina and Bill Howe Plumbing can continue to elevate the industry for all trade men and women as well as their own plumbers. San Diego will also benefit from the healthier, safer and happier service companies.

“We have an aging workforce we need to consider,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. “We all want to enjoy safety and health, but more importantly, we work hard and we want to see all our employees enjoy all of their hard work after retirement.”
