Reliable Sanctions and Public Safety Checks for Comprehensive Risk & Compliance Programs

Including sanctions background checks as part of your overall employment screening program is a quick and effective way to verify applicant integrity and meet hiring regulations. Sterling Talent Solutions helps companies in financial, government, healthcare and telecommunications industries manage their risk and compliance programs by offering government sanctions background checks in critical and sensitive areas.

In North America, certain regulated industries require screening for terrorist activity and terrorist related financing activity to supplement standard pre-employment background checks. These regulations are designed to prevent terrorism and maintain security by only employing individuals who have not been flagged as a participant in any terrorism-related activities.

By combining US, Canadian and International government lists, Sterling Talent Solutions identifies individuals and groups that have been identified as being involved in or as having links to terrorism.
