Identity Verification

Identity Verification is designed to help you mitigate risk through a simple process where candidates verify that the information they provided about themselves, such as their name and date of birth, is indeed their own. This allows employers to verify that candidates are in fact who they claim to be. In the transportation industry, for example, your drivers may need to verify their identities from remote locations. In any situation where remote verification is needed, both accuracy and reliable technology play critical roles.

Sterling offers industry-leading solutions to monitor the status of all or a part of your population, either continuously or at pre-determined time intervals. Ebbs and flows of your staffing levels may also create circumstances where you bring individuals back after a layoff or furlough, triggering a need for rescreening. Construction workforce monitoring is one of the many sectors where such a service can come in handy.
