APG Workforce: A national workforce management leader
APG Workforce is one of Australia’s leading national workforce management companies. We offer labour hire, permanent recruitment, and temporary recruitment services, but we also offer so much more than that.
Much more than just a recruitment agency, APG Workforce provides a comprehensive workforce management service. We partner with some of Australia’s leading companies with sites throughout Australia, as well as with smaller organisations, and we have a presence in every Australian state.
APG Workforce is a people-first organisation and we truly care about people. For employers, we build engaged workforces. For job seekers, we provide rewarding roles, ongoing training, and development opportunities.
To say the labour market has been challenging over the last 18 months would be an understatement, but like all successful businesses we have had to move with the times and become more creative when it comes to exploring platforms that will assist in attracting the new generation of workers for the agricultural, manufacturing and logistics labour markets. Earlier in the year we made an investment to film some short promotional video’s that were created to attract more workers into regional Australia to assist with the massive labour shortage and they looked great! It was money well spent, they definitely served a purpose in terms of promoting our brand and we were left with plenty of stock footage which we could use for other purposes.
Whilst Facebook and Instagram have been the key marketing tool to attract the younger generations in years gone by, we were not capturing everyone. The last piece in the puzzle had not yet been explored.
So now APG Workforce is on TikTok. Experts say there are over 1.6 Million users in Australia, most of them being Gen-Y and Millennials. TikTok was the number 1 downloaded App globally in the last 2 years. So it makes sense that APG gets on board the TikTok train! In just under 24 hours our 1 short video has had over 1000 views with each viewer given the opportunity to engage and register with APG Workforce for employment opportunities. It’s early days, but we know we have another useful tool in our arsenal, and we’re keen to get TikTokking! Who else is on TikTok and how has it worked for your business?

At APG Workforce we are passionate about supporting our farmers, growers and producers. Times are tough and more workers are required to keep the supply chain flowing. Here we showcase some of the work on offer in the beautiful Riverina town of Griffith in NSW. We also have fantastic opportunities available in Tamworth, Echuca, Shepparton, Mareeba and many other regional locations across Australia.
Special thanks to all involved including our friends at Baiada and Mossmont Nurseries. If you are serious about supporting our farmers, growers and producers of great Aussie produce then like and share this video.
