Precondition FILE_EXISTS on Agent Groups

Good Morning,
One of our teams here has some workflows with preconditions that check for the existence of a flag file before continuing.  Our challenge is that in our build (we just updated from 11.2.1 to 11.2.6HF1), we cannot use an agent group in the conditions as it only accepts agent names. 
What we currently have in place (not developed by us), is that there is a job that runs instead to check for the existence of the file so that we don't have to worry about updating workflows when they are transported between dev and prod.  The challenge we have is that there is a business requirement that this needs to check for the file every minute on every day.  Though this is something that we do push back on periodically, at this time, we cannot change this requirement.
Has anyone else encountered this and have any possible alternatives that have worked successfully?  We are going to be presenting why running them every minute is bad, but I'm also looking around for some technical alternatives.
Thanks in advance for any input!!
