Business Is Now Aboriginal Peoples’ New Sport – Let’s Play!

The Aboriginal Resource Group (ARG) brings a brand new academy model to the table, and it’s setting up the new way to play.

ARG was founded by Cory Robertson in mid-2013. As a 100% privately owned Aboriginal business, our resource group has worked closely with industries and stakeholders to become a key player in the arena of providing indigenous work talent and contact services to corporations and businesses across Australia.

ARG only plays in a game where value can be delivered and achieved profitably for all stakeholders.

In Cory Robertson’s own words, “We Play to win Sustainable Trust with all our clients. Being privately owned, we have plenty of ‘skin in the game’ to manage all stakeholders risk to achieve the sustainable trust required for the long term.

ARG is the broker for sharing commercial opportunities between resource companies to create and build on a relationship of Indigenous participation in employment and support enterprise pursuits that add value.

We understand the need to increase social capital returns as well as workforce diversity for our clients and to have capacity building for local Aboriginal communities.

Our “Done For You” solution relies on an holistic approach and support for our Indigenous team members who “play the game”.

ARG is a “social business” focused on assisting our clients to achieve “community well-being” in the towns they serve. We have innovative models that are able to estimate the tangible, intangible and strategic cost and efforts in Indigenous participation as a Return On Investment (ROI) percentage.

With A New Game You Need Good Players! We have an alliance network which is working to achieve the same goals as us… Plus our advisory board gives us years of invaluable business experience across multiple industries.

We’ve got the right systems and processes in place to help our clients meet their social responsibility and workforce diversity commitments. Below you’ll find our Alliance Network & Advisory Board. These are the people and organisations we continue to work with to realise the potential of indigenous people and communities for your organisation.
