(New York, NY, December 4, 2017) – Sterling has been named a winner in the Best Place to Work for Large Companies category in the 2017 Best in Biz Awards, the only independent business awards program judged each year by prominent editors and reporters from top-tier publications in North America. This is the second time the company has received such an honor, having won a Best in Business Award in 2016 for Executive of the Year, Large Company, for its CEO, Clare Hart.

Known for its speed, accuracy, and commitment to compliance, Sterling offers global expertise in background screening for a complex world, providing hiring peace of mind when companies are considering potential employees, vendors and partners.

Each year, Best in Biz Awards’ entrants span the spectrum, from some of the most innovative local start-ups to the most recognizable global brands. The seventh annual program was highly competitive, with more than 650 entries from an impressive array of public and private companies of all sizes and from a variety of industries and geographic regions in the U.S. and Canada.

“It’s an honor to be named by the Best in Biz Awards as a Best Place to Work as it recognizes our commitment to our most valuable asset – our employees,”” said Clare Hart, CEO of Sterling. “At Sterling, just as we are continuously investing in our innovative, cloud-based products and technologies, we are also continuously investing in our talent and our culture. We will continue to focus on fostering a work environment that values people, promotes teamwork and diversity, and honors innovative thinking.”

Winners of Best in Biz Awards are determined based on scoring from independent judging panels composed of prominent editors and reporters from some of the most respected newspapers, TV outlets, and business, consumer, technology and trade publications in North America. Best in Biz Awards’ uniqueness stems, in part, from this distinct composition of its judging panels, allowing it to best leverage the judges’ unparalleled expertise, experience and objectivity to determine award winners.
