Highlighting the Facts

Some dishonest candidates will inevitably bend the truth or outright lie on their CV in an effort to impress a prospective employer. An employment verification from Sterling collects factual information about your candidate’s work history directly from the source – Human Resources and Payroll.

The average cost of a bad hire can be between 15%-21% of an employee’s salary.1

How Does Our Employment Verification Process Work?

We gather information on previous positions held, dates of employment and reasons for leaving, and cross-reference them with details provided by your candidate to deliver an invaluable, accurate view of their work experience and honesty. With our services, you can access the information you need to make informed hiring decisions.

  • Unbiased information sourced directly from Payroll or Human Resources
  • Comparison with information obtained through reference interviews
  • Identification of activity gaps in a CV or job application
  • Flexible to accommodate industry regulations and guidelines
  • Online, real-time results available within 3 to 5 business days

Streamline the Hiring Process

With expert support from Sterling, your HR Department can dedicate time to other important management issues, while our proprietary database for employment verification reduces turnaround time for an employment history check. As a result, you can hire new employees in a more efficient and streamlined manner.

Mind the ‘Activity’ Gap

Some candidates will choose not to disclose an employment gap on their CV by falsifying dates and assume that employers will never be contacted for employment verifications. Sterling’s Activity Verification service aims to combat this issue by integrating a variety of employment history verification techniques to establish a timeline for the potential employee, highlighting any prolonged gaps in their professional or academic history. Our service can also help to verify activity during these prolonged gaps and can be tailored to meet the specific business and industry requirements.
