Liens, Judgments, and Bankruptcies
For individuals in positions of trust and authority over your financial operations, assessing risk associated with new hires and existing employees is critical. Our Liens, Judgments, and Bankruptcies solutions help you make the decision whether there is a need to disqualify them from certain functions or establish supervisory controls for safety and security. This may also include certain sensitive positions that make large-scale purchasing decisions.
Hiring a new executive requires an additional layer of trust and assurance. Whether you are hiring a new CEO, an M&A partner, or new board member, you should feel confident no surprises are waiting to be uncovered by shareholders, the media, or the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Completed by our private investigations subsidiary, Sterling Diligence, our executive background checks are trusted by Fortune 100 companies.
There has never been a greater need for a strong investigations partner. Whether you are hiring a new CEO, an M&A partner, or a new board member, you should feel confident that no surprises are waiting to be uncovered by shareholders, the media, or the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Having a reliable partner to run an extensive background check helps identify possible risks, past criminal activity, conflicts of interest, links to financial or organized crime, verification of credentials, issues of reputation and character, or omissions of materials information.
Social Media Searches
With social media becoming a fundamental way billions engage with each other, social media background checks are increasing in popularity to minimize risk of a bad hire. Sterling has partnered with Fama to offer clients the ability to screen potential and current employees using publicly available online information. Our solution helps organizations build great cultures by identifying traits that align with an organization’s values, while also enhancing ethical decision-making and compliance by proactively recognizing risk-creating behaviors such as bigotry, racism, and sexism.
