Rogenen Pepito

Roge intends to examine the shipping industry’s recruitment and retention problems from the context of agency employment. Specifically, she is interested in the relationship between temporary agency employment and organizational commitment of senior officers. Her interest in this stems from her experience in the crewing industry for almost 15 years.

Roge was previously connected with two reputable crewing agencies in the Philippines and have worked in varying capacities covering business development, key account management, crew and family welfare relations as well as operations management.

Driven by her interest to gain a holistic view of the industry, she availed of the SIRC-Nippon Fellowship which commenced in October 2013.  She is now on the third year of her fellowship.

Prior Cardiff, Roge earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Anthropology from the University of the Philippines. She also holds a diploma in Industrial Relations from the same university.
