Simply rotate the layer? Not sure why this needs to be more complicated than that.

I could give you an efficient workflow if I saw the timeline that created the graphic. In simplest terms, create a text layer with a mask centered on the Anchor Point of the text layer, conform the text to the mask, then parent the text layer to a null at the center of your graphic. Also, parent the 5 blue blocks to the same Null. You could also use expressions to drive the rotation and add value + thisComp.layer("your rotating master layer name"). That expression could be applied to every rotating graphic if their anchor point was at the center of the graphic.
