Public Sector

(noun) A part of the economy, composed of both public services and public enterprises. Public services include goods and government services such as the military, police, infrastructure (public roads, bridges, tunnels, water supply, sewers, electrical grids, telecommunications, etc.), public transit, public education, along with health care and those working for the government itself, such as elected officials.

What we think about the Public Sector

Public offices are amongst the most challenging work environments, due to limited resources. At APG we believe that we that as a group our division can be used to make various elements of the public sector’s security better, more efficient whilst improving the lives of employees in this sector.

In making this sector more efficient we optimise the man-hours need to accomplish certain tasks and make the tax-payers money go further.
