Government & Education

Partner with a global leader in background checks and identity services, to help streamline your workflows with speed and quality. Provide a positive candidate experience with a focus on compliance, while protecting your employees, your reputation and the public.

Government and educational institutions face a critical need to be secure in their hiring decisions. Employees regularly interact with the public and may be involved with safety-sensitive locations, information or vulnerable populations.

Government Background Checks

Across all levels of government, employees must provide a positive and professional experience for constituents. A key part of this equation is knowing the backgrounds of the people you hire. Whether your employees work on your infrastructure, handle finance or anything in between, Sterling’s employee background checks help ensure all candidates brought in for sensitive roles are trustworthy.

Education Background Checks

Academic settings, from pre-schools to universities, are unique communities where personal relationships are important. Inviting full-time, part-time or contract employees into your classrooms or campus involves specialized requirements to maintain a safe environment and gain your community’s confidence. When placing students in internships or employment affiliated with a degree in a program, Sterling Student, a unique background screening solution, provides value and confidence to leading universities.

Through a combination of pre-employment background screening and workforce monitoring solutions, governments and leading educational institutions have long-standing relationships with Sterling to help maintain safety and public confidence across campuses.
