EWG is a national event placement and workforce technology business. Over the past 5 years EW’s staffing arm has grown to become Australia's leading placement agency of Generation Y into the events, sport and entertainment industry, creating over 15,000 individual opportunities for their motivated, hard working “Workforcers”. It was through these placements’ that EW Groups workforce management software “Rosterfy” was born.
