In addition, companies can tailor their testing program to meet their specific needs and build resiliency amid the uncertainty of the continuing pandemic.

“This is a stressful time for companies as they continue navigating through uncharted territory and define new best practices that strive to protect their employees, customers, and communities,” said Josh Peirez, CEO, Sterling. “As we navigate through the Covid-19 pandemic, employers don’t have to feel that they are in this alone. With our Covid-19 health testing services, Sterling eases the burden by coordinating a complete, flexible end-to-end program that helps companies stay true to their mission and values, build resilience into their organizations, and strengthen their foundations of trust and safety.”

Peter Lehmann, Chief Strategy Officer, Sterling, said, “In their return to workplace, employers are faced with uncertainty and rare circumstances for which there is little precedent. As employers seek to create safe environments for their employees, customers, and broader communities, while preserving their corporate cultures and sustaining company values, many don’t know how to go about it or even where to start.
