Sterling offers a comprehensive suite of services for companies under 5,000 employees, including criminal background checks, verifications, workforce monitoring, drug and health screening, and fingerprinting. Its Complete Criminal Locator uses three locator tools—a Social Security Number Trace, Enhanced Nationwide, and Locator Select—to automatically find and search up to 20% more criminal records than any other background screening provider. Sterling doesn’t use third-party vendors to pull and aggregate criminal record data from courthouses; with CourtDirect™ —its proprietary fulfillment technology—there is automated direct digital access to 2,300+ US county jurisdictions.
Sterling has various pre-employment verification types, including education and employment verification, professional license and certification verification, military employment verification, DOT and regulated positions verification, and professional reference checks. It helps to monitor your workforce with its post-hire services, which provide a unique way to continuously monitor your workforce with near real-time comprehensive risk alerts on employee criminal behavior that increases risk and liability, such as DUI, assaults, fraud, theft, and more. Sterling’s candidate management service has a new Candidate Hub, which is an efficient way for candidates to manage their screening process, save time, and keep engaged throughout the screening process via SMS notifications and alerts. Sterling’s Drug and Health Screening services offer comprehensive pre-and post-hire drug screening to help your company stay compliant and meet work policy requirements.
