San Diego, CA (PressExposure) June 16, 2011 -- For the second consecutive year, the Bill Howe Family of Companies has been named one of San Diego best places to work by the San Diego Business Journal. Bill Howe, Tina Howe and the rest of the management team attended the Best Places to Work 2011 awards ceremony on Thursday, June 9 to accept their award and congratulate the other San Diego businesses who were also being honored.
The San Diego Business Journal's Best Places to Work Award is a survey and recognition program dedicated to identifying and recognizing San Diego's best employers. The San Diego Business Journal works with Best Companies Group to utilize their two part assessment which includes an employer questionnaire and an employee survey. The results are then analyzed and categorized according to eight focus areas: Leadership and Planning, Corporate Culture and Communications, Role Satisfaction, Work Environment, Relationship with Supervisor, Training and Development, Pay and Benefits and Overall Engagement.
"This is the second time we've participated in the nomination process and the second time we've been named one of the Best Places to Work in San Diego. We understand that when employees are happy and proud of the company they work for, they'll provide customers with the best possible customer service and quality work," said Tina Howe, Vice President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. "We employ the best technicians in San Diego and we plan on keeping them! While we are honored by the award, we also don't plan on stopping here. We're always looking for new ways to offer our employees unique benefits. For example we're currently running a 12-week Biggest Loser Contest for our employees complete with a nutritionist, hosted healthy breakfasts, weekly weigh-ins and organized group workouts."
Best Companies Group works with local media and publishing partners across the county to establish "Best Places to Work" programs in order to identify and recognize those companies in a defined geographical area or industry who have been successful in creating and maintaining workplace excellence.
