HD Supply Facilities Maintenance was recently honored with the 2011 Marble Award (First Place) in the large company category of the Workplace Excellence Awards, presented by the San Diego Chapter of the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM). 

The Workplace Excellence Awards recognize San Diego companies demonstrating exceptional human resources practices, which contribute to both company performance and employee satisfaction.

“This Marble Award is particularly special since one of our associates felt so strongly about the company and was inspired to submit a nomination,” said Anesa Chaibi, president and CEO of HD Supply Facilities Maintenance. 

To be considered for an award, a company must be nominated by one of its employees. From all of the employee nominations received across San Diego, only 61 companies were invited by SHRM to complete a comprehensive application.

Single-family housing starts increase in December

BY Ken Clark

According to the Commerce Department’s tally, December’s total housing starts were down from November, but single-family starts were at the highest rate in 21 months.

December housing starts were at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 657,000, down 4.1% from the November pace of 685,000. But compared with last year, total starts are up 24.9%.

While total starts faltered in December, the single-family numbers gave some optimism for a home improvement and housing industry hungry for growth. On a single-family basis, starts in December were at a rate of 470,000, up 4.4% from November and up 11.6% from December 2010. The December number was the strongest since April 2010.

Building permits were at a rate of 679,000, essentially flat from November but up 7.8% from December 2010.

For the full year, an estimated 606,900 housing units were started in the United States, up 3.4% from the 2010 figure of 586,900. However, single-family starts declined in 2011 to 428,600 for the full year, down 9.0% from 2010. The 2011 single-family figure is the lowest on record.
