Global Comprehensive Hiring Services

Tailored to fit your industry’s screening needs and business requirements.

Our screening solutions are built on powerful proprietary technology that automates complex workflows — and delivers high-quality results with industry-leading turnaround times.
Criminal activity monitoring proactively monitors 2,000+ jails for new booking and incarceration events for the enrolled employee population. Employers receive alert notifications, so they can conveniently log into the Workforce Monitoring application to view additional criminal activity details.
Sterling searches through the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) National Sex Offender Public Website (NSOPW), which includes registered sex offenders in 49 States, US territories, the District of Columbia, and participating Indigenous tribes. Please note that reporting in Nevada is not permitted.
Promote a safe workplace with our robust drug and occupational health screening services found within an extensive network of 15,000+ test sides nationwide, and streamlined scheduling experience for candidates.
Employment verifications are used to verify a candidate’s employment history and records with HR, payroll, or third-party providers — including periods of traditional employment, as well as temp agency assignments, military history, and periods of self-employment. Available in the US and globally.
With the number of data breaches and stolen identities rising year after year, Sterling’s Identity Verification is designed to verify an individual’s identity as the first step in the screening process. Candidates can verify their identity with the convenience of their smartphone, providing a foundation of trust and safety.
Sterling offers a Department of Transportation (DOT) Physical Exam that meets employer-specific job requirements. They are sometimes called “Fit for Duty” or “Human Performance” exams, and may include detailed health history, vision screening, hearing evaluation, blood pressure and pulse rate check, urinalysis, and respirator clearance. 
A post-accident or “post-incident” test is performed after an employee has been involved in a workplace accident. Testing is used to determine whether drugs and/or alcohol were a potential factor in the incident. This service has 6,000+ trained collectors to perform 24/7/365 emergency collections when accidents occur, and includes immediate contact to a Sterling partner for direct scheduling and dispatch of a qualified technician to the worksite or to the scene of an accident.
