Rohit Communities Welcomes a New Family Home with Habitat for Humanity

October 24, 2017 (Edmonton, Alberta) – Rohit Communities and Habitat for Humanity welcomed a mother and young daughter into their new townhome on Monday, October 23rd as dignitaries and staff members from both teams watched on. The ceremony included words from Alfred Nikolai, President and CEO of Habitat for Humanity; Rohit Gupta, President of Rohit Group; Thomas Dang, MLA for Edmonton South West; and the new homeowners.

Rohit Communities has a strong history of partnership with Habitat for Humanity. Earlier this year, over 30 volunteers from Rohit Communities and their partners rolled up their sleeves to join The Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project to help 75 families gain home ownership in Edmonton. Previously, Rohit Communities donated homes to families in Windermere, as well as another in Leduc.

“We have a continual focus on working with families to access safe and attainable housing,” stated Rohit Gupta, President of Rohit Group. “For us, we see home ownership as a major positive step forward that can create positive ripples throughout not only their life, but also those of the community around them”.

Essential Allard, the townhome development the family now calls home, was selected not only because of the location in an established community but also because of it’s proximity to a new school.

Rohit Group does it again – the corporate video reimagined

Oops they did it again. Rohit Group of Companies’ has launched its much-anticipated second workplace video “You’re the One that We Want!” The new video is a humorous twist on stale recruitment techniques, themed after the movie “Grease,” and features Rohit’s very own talented employees in the roles of Danny, Sandy and their retro crew as Danny goes through the process of becoming a “Rohitian.”

A true team effort, the video was written and choreographed entirely by Rohit staff.  The quirky lyrics would make any human resource professional cringe.  And the dancing…well let’s just say no one is quitting their day job.

The video is a sequel to Rohit’s “Caught Working Safe” production from last year, a parody of *NSYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye” focusing on promoting safety in the residential construction industry. Both productions show Rohit’s unique culture – a talented group of diverse individuals who aren’t afraid to share a laugh.

“Our recent expansion into Calgary and Regina have created rapid growth for our organization,” says Amy Power, Marketing Manager. “And when a discussion turned to a recruitment video, we knew it had to be fun and involve the team again. Lunchtime auditions and some elbow twisting at a summer BBQ turned our home builders into Hollywood actors.”

The leadership and culture of Rohit Group of Companies has played a pivotal role in attracting and retaining great people with a diverse set of skills and experience. In addition to creating killer music videos, the Rohit team has been busy across all regions and departments. 2017 has seen Rohit begin construction on two developments in Calgary, sell out of its first neighbourhood in Regina, and introduce Edmonton to its residential rentals at Upper Windermere, mixed use office space in Orchards Gate, and launched a revolution in interior design with the Democratization of Style.
