Press Release from Sterling

INDEPENDENCE, OH (MAY 1, 2024)  — For the fourth consecutive year, Sterling Check Corp. (NASDAQ: STER) (“Sterling”), a leading provider of background screening and identity services, has been recognized at the top of the industry for its outstanding tools and technologies used by employers to streamline hiring and build strong company cultures. This year marks five years for The HR Tech Awards and for four of those years, Sterling has been among an elite group of technology solutions. The winners were announced today via a livestream event on LinkedIn.  

Sterling stands out in the field, awarded two distinctions:   

  • Talent Acquisition : sourcing, matching, candidate experience, assessments, onboarding, and other relevant technologies.
  • Best Comprehensive Solution : solution that solves the core challenges of businesses in the enterprise market. This is Sterling’s fourth year in a row receiving this recognition. 

This year, the winning organizations represent the top 1-2% of HR tech providers in the market.

“For many companies, the term ‘background screening’ means long wait times, low visibility, and high frustration, especially when trying to bring on highly qualified candidates,” said Ben Eubanks, Chief Research Officer, Lighthouse Research & Advisory. “Sterling breaks that stereotype, closing approximately 90% of its searches within 24 hours, offering transparency and scale for even the largest hiring volumes. It’s a win for candidates and for employers.”
