We exist to inspire hope, joy, courage and purpose in the global workforce.
Most companies are born out of a desire to be profitable. ROHEI was sparked into existence by a collective desire among friends to make a difference and do life together.
Having left a senior consulting role to focus on not-for-profit youth work, founder Rachel finds herself nudged persistently by friends and family to create a workplace where people are energised, fulfilled and flourish.
ROHEI was officially registered on 14 February 2007 with a mission of inspiring hope, joy, courage and purpose to the workforce. The name ROHEI comes from the Hebrew word ro’eh, which means “Shepherd”.
After providing a myriad of consultancy services, from helping start a plumbing school, residential leadership programmes, business process reengineering and strategic planning for MNCs and government agencies, the team at ROHEI discovers its niche: developing people and equipping leaders. Workforce development becomes the key focus.
ROHEI sets up its first training facility located at the heart of the business district along Shenton Way. ROHEI’s Red, White, Green, Yellow training rooms and staff office are located on two different floors of Shenton House.
Responding to a client who needed to train a large number of people in a fun and energetic and yet personal and engaging way, the Learning Carnival learning format was born. ROHEI creates the ability to facilitate learning for up to 200 people at a time in a carnival-like atmosphere with a station-rotation format.
ROHEI moves into the newly built Devan Nair Institute, occupying 19,000 square feet on level 5, where the team created 11 learning spaces, specially designed for unique and immersive learning.
ROHEI Wins Best Corporate Training Provider, HRM Asia Readers’ Choice Award for the first time, and again in 2017. This award aims to recognise exceptional Corporate Service Providers in Singapore.
ROHEI was recognized by the Great Place to Work Institute (GPTW) as ‘Top 5 Best Workplaces in Singapore’. This was largely attributed to the high-trust culture with a 98% Trust Index, the highest across the globe recorded by GPTW. ROHEI has since been listed in GPTW Best Workplaces in Singapore and Asia in 2016, 2017 and 2018.
Established in Manila, Philippines, ROHEI Foundation is more than a CSR (corporate social responsibility). ROHEI’s passion to serve people and fulfil their mission was extended beyond the workforce to serve the community by helping address social issues relating to the orphaned and the elderly of society.
ROHEI opens its office in Shanghai, China, enlarging our footprint to inspire hope, joy, courage and purpose in the global workforce. ROHEI’s name in China is 心禾 (xin he), which reflects the heart of a shepherd.
ROHEI’s perspectives reflect what we value and directs our decision making in what we do and how we do it. It is what we believe will drive sustainable growth and lasting success.

Learning design that is immersive and experiential engages all senses and allows learning to be caught and not just taught.
Curriculum and experience design teams work closely, bringing together a diverse set of expertise to look at every aspect of the programme design. Details matter: space layout, thematic styling, and audio-visual design are carefully integrated for unique, impactful and memorable experiences.
Our facilitators and coaches have the courage to be vulnerable. This creates an emotionally safe environment for deep reflection and learning.
Our people serve from the heart. Experience radical hospitality by a team who is willing to go the extra mile to meet your learning objectives and make every person feel valued.
Deep dialogue with clients and stakeholder engagement are key. This allows us to gain insight into the underlying issues, and more importantly relational dynamics, which allow for effective facilitation and reconciliation.
By co-creating with clients, we are able to establish parallels to workplace scenarios, with content, language and examples which are relevant. The result is application back at the workplace for higher engagement and performance.
From a team of two, we have grown into our current strength of over 60 full-time staff—a mix of trainers, consultants, coaches, experience designers, account managers, strategists, and administrators. Though we are an eclectic blend of personalities and represent diverse cultures, we share common values. We are passionate about people development and it brings us joy to see our clients and partners succeed.View our team
As we strive to fulfil our mission, we can’t help but look beyond the workforce. Ingrained in our company culture is a strong passion for helping and serving people. Over the years, we have grown deeply affected by the social issues around the orphaned and the elderly in our society. In 2018, we answered the call to serve and established ROHEI Foundation.
The ROHEI Foundation seeks to extend our mission of bringing hope, joy, courage, and purpose beyond the workforce. Based in Manila, we advocate for adoption and are developing programmes to provide holistic care for pregnant women in crisis, to rescue abandoned and disowned babies, and to guide families in their adoption journey.
In Singapore, the foundation efforts are focused on being a blessing to the neglected elderly in our communities.
