Screen the Correct Person

Verify Identity Before
Starting a Background Check

Performing identity verification is important to confirm candidate identity before beginning the background screening process.
There’s a common misconception that background checks automatically verify candidate identity. Most background checks depend on manually entered information such as a correct date of birth and complete name. Intentional or accidental errors can potentially go undetected and lead to incorrect background check results. Sterling Identity Verification is designed to bridge this gap by improving candidate data accuracy upfront.
