Siemens’ essential businesses have been critical in keeping America’s vital services and critical infrastructure up and running during the COVID-19 pandemic. In locations where we do not have trained personnel onsite, we have engaged two staffing agencies, along with Sterling for background checks, to hire hundreds of medical professionals to assist in temperature screenings at many of our manufacturing facilities.”

UniFirst’s customers are serving as the backbone of our communities, keeping them safe and up and running amid this pandemic. We continue to rely on our key partner Sterling for thorough and efficient background screening so we can quickly onboard new team members, particularly for critical production roles that support supermarkets, food suppliers, manufacturing, healthcare facilities, banks, waste disposal companies, hardware stores, and shipping businesses.”

With COVID-19, we had to quickly transition to new background screening processes without compromising turnaround times or accuracy. Sterling helped identify and execute a new way for Kimberly-Clark to confirm the case-by-case need for a statewide search in those limited instances where local court records could not be accessed.”

Talent Acquisition Manager-North America
Kimberly-Clark
We have limited opportunities to make changes to our program, usually occurring after the election season, and 2020 proved to be an exceptional year for us in every sense of the word. As our long-standing screening provider, Sterling was able to partner with us and make some much-needed updates to our program during a time of year where our resources are limited.”

Manufacturing

From those who produce consumable goods to the most complex and technological defense solutions and everything in-between, manufacturers want to attract and retain the best employees. A safe working environment supports that goal, and robust background check solutions – such as Criminal Background Checks, Pre-employment Verifications, and Drug and Health Screenings, among others – are fundamental in enabling workplace safety. Often, manufacturing companies need to include occupational health screening. With Sterling, that’s a simple request and has already been implemented as part of our employment screening programs. Our network of partner clinics offers an array of screenings and services, such as Fit-for-Duty exams to meet Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and other regulatory requirements.

Transportation

Recent times have reinforced the importance of safely moving goods and people. Our varied solutions suit the unique needs of drivers, mechanics, and pilots within trucking, mass transit, rail, air, and pipeline to help remain compliance-focused across relevant regulatory authorities, including the Department of Transportation (DOT), Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), and Pilots Records Improvement Act (PRIA) requirements. All screening needs are managed through a single, core platform that includes integrations for Motor Vehicle Record (MVR) Monitoring and Driver Qualification Files (DQFs), and are all covered under employment screening for the transportation industry.

Construction

From engineers to project planners to laborers, success in the construction industry requires teamwork. Trust is a critical component for building great teams – and trust starts when your full population has had a thorough construction background check. Sterling’s industry experts can work with you and address your business needs to provide a robust background check geared for candidates in the construction industry. We help close gaps so that you can trust your candidates are who they say they are, and meet all qualifications set by your company. Sterling offers compliance tools and services that can be leveraged to help you comply with various regulatory requirements, including those for OSHA.

Services Tailored for Your Industry

While the specific screening needs of every business differ, typically reflecting a unique culture that enables success, Sterling’s decades of experience can be leveraged to design the most appropriate solution.
Criminal Background Checks

Getting a complete picture of a candidate’s criminal history is often more complex than people think. At Sterling, we make it easy for you to make fast, more accurate, and safer hiring decisions through a combination of robust services, solutions, and technology that allows us to:

  • Uncover more criminal activity
  • Gain direct access to more US criminal records
  • Deliver accurate results quickly

Identity Verification

Identity Verification is designed to help you mitigate risk through a simple process where candidates verify that the information they provided about themselves, such as their name and date of birth, is indeed their own. This allows employers to verify that candidates are in fact who they claim to be. In the transportation industry, for example, your drivers may need to verify their identities from remote locations. In any situation where remote verification is needed, both accuracy and reliable technology play critical roles.

Pre-employment Verifications

Make sure you know who you’re hiring with the support of industry-leading pre-employment verifications backed by a powerful fulfillment engine. Sterling’s verification services deliver fast, detailed confirmations of a candidate’s educational background, job history, and other credentials so you can be confident in every new hire.

Drug and Health Screening

Maintaining a safe and productive work environment is critical for businesses and employees. Sterling’s Drug and Health Screening services offer robust pre- and post-hire drug screening to help your company stay compliance-focused and meet work policy requirements. Sterling leverages electronic registration to support pre-employment – including random, post-accident, and reasonable suspicion testing so clients can address their compliance needs with 49 CFR Part 40 procedures for DOT Workplace Drug and Alcohol Testing Programs.

Workforce Monitoring

You invest time and money up front to know who you’re hiring. But what happens after your new employees begin work? Sterling offers industry-leading solutions to monitor the status of all or a part of your population, either continuously or at pre-determined time intervals. Ebbs and flows of your staffing levels may also create circumstances where you bring individuals back after a layoff or furlough, triggering a need for rescreening. Construction workforce monitoring is one of the many sectors where such a service can come in handy.

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.

Executive Investigations

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.

With 70% of our criminal history searches closing in under one hour, we help yield a positive candidate experience, while assisting clients to quickly address workforce shortage and recruitment challenges. We combine our advanced technology with a superior fulfilment engine to deliver a simpler, more efficient construction background check, manufacturing background check, and transportation background check program – no matter how many employees or locations you may have and operate.

Adapting Over Time

An effective background screening program is not a “set it and forget it” effort. Client needs, standards across construction, manufacturing, and transportation industries, and the environment around each industry change regularly over time. Our dedicated account management team members have decades of experience in your industry, enabling us to tailor products and services to meet your unique background check program needs. Another example of our commitment to safety and trust is our testing program solution designed in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Sterling offers a range of testing options along with best-practice insights that will help you take back control and keep your employees safe.
