3 Ways We Empower Our Team Members
Employee Success Stories
While our success in your homes is what most people see, it is the stories behind the scenes that makes us the most proud.
Started: 2017 - From Customer Service Representative to Home Comfort Coordinator to Marketing Manager to Customer Experience Manager. I was eager to learn everything I could, and Peterman has built such a great environment of people wanting to help and teach younger team members. Early on I learned so much from so many people. Over the course of my time with Peterman, I've had the chance to work with Chad to build our membership program and ultimately lead the marketing team. My favorite part about working in this industry, and especially for Peterman, is that there is always something new to learn and there's never a shortage of people willing to take time out of their day to help and teach. Over the course of my three years at Peterman I've learned new skills, grown as a leader, and developed confidence, but most importantly, been able to develop great friendships with co-workers that extends outside of the reach of the office.
Started: 2017 -From HVAC Service Technician to Turnover Technician to Home Performance to Sewer/Excavation Sales. They called me into our small conference room and asked if I would be willing to transition from the HVAC department to the plumbing department doing sales in sewer and excavation. I was shocked and honored, scared and afraid but with two of the best leaders in the industry sitting there with you and believing in you it was an easy decision to say yes. I took on a role that I was truly made for and I love my career. I just really want to take a minute and thank these three mentors who have completely changed my life for the better! The faith and trust The Peterman’s have in me push me to do better every day.
Started: 2009 - From Customer Service Representative to Membership Coordinator to Parts & Warranties to Home Performance Coordinator to Home Comfort Coordinator. I have had awesome Mentors (Kristy & Pete) and have had the pleasure of watching the company grow. When I started it was just Kristy and myself in the office and to see it expand to what it is now has been something great to witness. Pete and Kristy have always been there for me as an employee and a person. To see the Boys come in and continue what their dad has started is Truly a Blessing. I could not imagine being anywhere else.
Our culture centers on empowering our people to succeed. It’s built on caring about each and every person and the belief that everyone should be treated fairly, whether they’re a rock star sales guy or a new employee coming in who doesn’t know very much about the business or the industry. When we show how much we care, employees understand that the company as a whole cares about them. That is how we create the best HVAC & Plumbing careers in the Indiana.

Impacting More Than Customers
Involvement in the community is one of the most important initiatives to drive the culture of Peterman Heating, Cooling, and Plumbing. The Peterman team is consistently looking for opportunities to give back to our community through monetary donations, sponsorship, supply drives, time spent volunteering, and more. Here are a few events we were part of.
Paws & Prevention
We served as a sponsor for this in Fountain Square September of 2019. This event was put on by the Indianapolis Fire Department in conjunction with local animal shelters to promote adoption awareness. Tyler and Tara Peterman were both also personally involved in the event as they are animal advocates and Tara is a firefighter for the city of Indianapolis.
Autism Awareness is a cause that is near and dear to the hearts of the Peterman team. We have several employees who have children on the autism spectrum. Each year we put together a team of fundraisers who participate in the Indianapolis Autism Speaks Walk. In 2019, we raised close to $750 as a team, and had several team members attend the walk.
Race For A Cure
This was selected because of the direct impact it has had on the company. Beth, Pete’s wife, is herself a breast cancer survivor. In 2014 our company formed a team for the event. On April 12th, over forty employees, friends, and family members came out to support the cause. In total, we raised $1,920 between company donations and community donations.
