We also offer the reassurance that information will be handled perfectly every time – from privacy and secure storage to timeliness and accuracy.

Thorough background checking reduces turnover and hiring costs, improves the quality of hire, and is an important part of satisfying hiring regulations for working within government and the public sector. A partner such as Sterling can fulfil each of these requirements while minimising costs and providing quick turnaround results.
