Sterling, a global leader in background and identity services, announces a collaboration with Globalization Partners which makes it fast and easy for companies to hire anyone, anywhere, within minutes, via its global employment platform to support businesses looking to expand their global presence with new international entities while helping to create and maintain safe environments for employees, customers and partners around the world.

The alignment will not only help businesses to overcome the legal and logistical complexity of being able to employ anyone anywhere in the world, but also help to mitigate the risk of a bad hire with a robust pre-employment background screening program.

The Globalization Partners solution allows organisations to onboard employees without having to set up legal entities in the respective region and bypass the complexities associated with navigating local HR, finance, tax, and legal challenges. Combine this with background and identity services from Sterling, and employers can have compliance peace of mind when it comes to establishing both its business and its people in a new region.

“We are proud to align with Globalization Partners to reduce the complexities associated hiring talent internationally” said Steve Smith, EMEA Managing Director at Sterling. “With the recent explosion in remote working, employers are better positioned to attract talent from all around the world, but with that comes complexity. As an organisation that supports global businesses with their background screening programs, we’re acutely aware of the expertise required to overcome these challenges and the risks of getting it wrong – from understanding which types of check are legally allowable in each region, to best practice processes when carrying those checks out. Sterling customers who choose to work with Globalization Partners can also now benefit from expertise that will allow them to outsource the complexity that comes with setting up regional businesses themselves. This partnership aligns with Sterling’s core mission of creating safer working environments and protecting every organisation’s greatest asset—its people. Wherever they are!””

“Together with Sterling we are able to remove a large proportion of the roadblocks that typically hold back companies that want to hire great talent globally. This collaboration enables companies to work with world’s best talent and more easily achieve their growth goals.” said Nick Adams, Vice President, EMEA, Globalization Partners.
