Industry-leading background screening and onboarding company rebrands to Sterling

NEW YORK, June 19, 2016 – Today SterlingBackcheck announced they will be renaming their company to Sterling. This name change follows their merger with TalentWise in January 2016 to unite two powerful companies and create one seamless solution – empowering clients to make smarter people decisions fueled by innovation and dynamic technology.

“We’ve brought together two high-performing organizations with one unified vision – to provide peace of mind by offering a simpler, smarter background screening and onboarding experience,” said Clare Hart, Chief Executive Officer at Sterling. “We are redefining the very core of our business – integrating our people, technology and passion to reshape our company and drive innovation.”

Sterling was designed to show clients and partners that they offer a suite of solutions, personalized to fit all industry and vertical needs. As regulations and client demands regularly change, it is their top priority to enhance quality, stability and agility to meet both day-to-day and strategic demands. Their new brand offers greater flexibly to address all of the needs of the background screening and onboarding industry.

“As we merge our products and develop new solutions, we elected a name to more accurately reflect our vision, culture and future growth plans,” said Hart. “We are proud to share our new brand with the world as it is a significant step in creating an exceptional experience for both customers and job candidates.”
