Our Values

How have The Rusher Rogers Company Values come into being?

Authentic Happiness is the work of Dr. Martin Seligman, Director of the Positive Psychology Centre at the University of Pennsylvania and founder of positive psychology. This is a branch of psychology which focuses on the empirical study of positive emotions and strengths-based character.

As a small company, we understood the value of understanding the personality traits, strengths and values of each individual in our small team and so asked everyone to complete the Authentic Happiness Survey.  We merged the collective character traits to arrive at the Rusher Rogers Company Values which underpin our brand, our actions and everything that we do.


Kindness and Generosity

Generous with our time, we are never too busy to assist our colleagues, candidates and clients. We genuinely enjoy helping others and therefore strive to achieve positive outcomes for everyone we help through our work.

Fairness, Equity and Justice

We believe in fairness, equity and justice. This reflects on our excellent candidate care and our approach to recruitment processes. We’re members of the Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry so we can ensure all we do is compliant with employment laws and regulations.

Honesty, Authenticity, and Genuineness

Honest, authentic and genuine to our clients, our candidates and each other in equal measure.

Judgment, Critical thinking, and Open-Mindedness

Our decisions are backed by industry experience, knowledge and research; our clients can rely on our advice. We examine problems from all sides before we come to important decisions. We’re proactive, not reactive and are open to new ideas for constructive change.

Citizenship, Teamwork, and Loyalty

Citizenship: We specialise in the NGO sector and volunteer our time to a local University pathways programme. Recently, we engaged in a pro-bono partnership with an NGO to help secure employment opportunities for asylum seekers and refugees.

Teamwork: We love to partner with clients to find a recruitment process that best compliments their unique ways of working.

Loyalty: we see loyalty to clients and candidates as key to the success of our business.

If you’re a company the Authentic Happiness Survey can be an excellent tool to identify your company values, or even as a team building exercise. Understanding what motivates and drives the individuals you work alongside improves self-awareness and helps teams become more outcome focussed in their interactions with one another.
If you’re an individual, the Authentic Happiness Survey is a good way to check in on your personal strengths and values when you’re building your resume, searching for employment or within your current role.
