Everything works and that's a nice thing to be able to provide. If applicants are thinking they want to take the offer, and then something goes wrong, it might give them a reason to reject us, which we obviously don’t want! We feel really good about the relationship we have with Sterling on that front.”

As we partnered with Sterling [for Covid-19 testing] and saw the service we got, we started having conversations about moving our background check services over. Customer service is highly important to us. It was pretty clear that Sterling was a good match, and the pricing was more competitive than what we were paying.”

With a two-tiered disposition matrix, there was a lot of onus back on Halliburton to review each background check. To streamline our hiring process and time to hire, we wanted to implement a three-tier staging with less onus back on Halliburton and more matrix-driven dispositioning. Sterling has helped alleviate the review time.”
