ROHEI was one of the recipients of the Top Employer Brand award, which celebrates companies with high employee engagement and strong cultures. The award was presented at the 2018 Asia CEO Summit by Influential Brands® at Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel on 20 November 2018.
More than 400 influential C-suite executives from leading companies across the region including Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and China attended the event, which celebrated chief executives, women leaders, influential and outstanding brands.
Out of more than 50 organisations nominated for the Top Employer Brands category this year, 9 emerged as winners. ROHEI is the only SME among the list of winners.
Praise Mok (Deputy CE), Sophia Ng (Chief, Strategy & Marketing), Karen Chan (VP), and Calvin Yeo (Principal Consultant) received the award.
Practitioners First, Consultants Second
“Here at ROHEI, we are practitioners first and consultants second,” says ROHEI founder and Chief Executive Rachel Ong, in a Business Times feature, “The Currency of Trust,” a piece honoring the Influential Brand Award winners, published on 21 November 2018.
“To be more effective at helping other companies to build trust, we have to build trust among ourselves first”, Rachel states.
Trust Starts at the Top
“The company has found that the best way to do so (help other companies) is through a top-down approach by starting with the leaders—in particular, C-suite executives”, Business Times shared about ROHEI.
Helping Build More Resilient and Innovative SMEs through Trust
The only SME among the list of winners, ROHEI sees the need to help fellow SMEs build strong cultures.
“Building a culture of trust helps companies, including SMEs, become more resilient and innovative. Because the culture is safe, staff are not afraid to keep trying.”
