Screen the Correct Person

With the number of data breaches and stolen identities rising year after year, there is an ever-growing risk that a candidate may be using a stolen identity when applying for a job and completing a background check. Verifying that candidates are who they say they are is an important first step in the hiring process.
Sterling Identity Verification is designed to help you mitigate this risk. Identity verification is 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.
Candidates verify their identity with the convenience of their smartphone – anywhere, anytime.

Verify Identity Before
Starting a Background Check

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.

False
Background checks are often dependent on candidate-provided data, such as their name and date of birth.

Technology Combined with
Background Screening Expertise

We leverage advanced, AI-based technology that authenticates identity documents by comparing them to a global document database. Candidate information is then pulled directly from the documents. A background check can then be performed on the correct, verified identity using the highest quality candidate data.
Verifying candidate identity from the onset can save you time, money, and effort while reducing risk.
