Sterling Wins Lighthouse Research & Advisory’s HR Tech Award for Best Comprehensive Solution

June 17th, 2021

Sterling has been named Best Comprehensive Solution for Enterprise in Talent Acquisition in the second annual HR Tech Awards from Lighthouse Research & Advisory.

The HR Tech Awards seek to help buyers understand the strength of today’s HR tech providers across learning, HR/workforce and talent through evaluation by an independent judging panel. With categories spanning learning, HR/Workforce, and talent, they recognize how leading industry vendors serve clients and deliver value. Each submission was judged on five key areas: the problem the technology solves in the market, case study, differentiation analysis, software and company evaluations.

“Sterling’s case study focusing on integrations is the future of the background check industry,” said Ben Eubanks, Chief Research Officer, Lighthouse Research & Advisory. “I was impressed with how they reduced that client’s screening time on average from three days to just 24 hours.”

At Sterling we pride ourselves on helping clients become more efficient and effective, and integrations play a large role. Crunch Fitness came to Sterling looking for a background screening partner that could reduce screening turnaround times and provide a strong integration with their HCM (Human Capital Management) software. They were looking to automate their hiring process, improve hiring efficiencies, and optimize the candidate experience. Within one month of coming on board, Sterling’s integration with Crunch’s HCM system was set up, tested, and live. Sterling delivered on Crunch’s need to reduce screening turnaround time, producing a reduction from three days for most checks to just 24 hours. Crunch’s specific requests, goals, and timelines were met, and Sterling continues to provide tailored, best-in-class service to them today.
