    Sterling: people in office

    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 and information or work with vulnerable populations.

    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.

    Academic settings, from preschools to universities, are unique communities where personal relationships are critical.
