Sterling Identity Verification is designed to help you mitigate risks associated with identity fraud. Identity verification is a simple process where candidates verify that the information they provided about themselves, such as their name and date of birth, is in fact their own. This allows employers to ensure that candidates are who they claim to be. Candidates verify their identity with the convenience of their devices – anywhere, at any time.

Advanced Technology Combined with Background Screening Expertise

We leverage advanced, AI-based technology that authenticates an identity document by comparing it to a global document database. Accurate candidate biographic information is then pulled directly from the document. A background check can then be performed on the correct, verified identity.
Verifying candidate identity from the onset and using that information for background checks can save you time, money, and effort.

Protect Your Business

With thousands of data breaches happening every year, identity theft and fraud are real concerns. Companies need more confidence than ever that their candidates are who they say they are.
At the same time, companies are hiring more remote and gig workers, making in-person identity verification challenging. That’s where Sterling Identity Verification comes in, which verifies candidate identity whether they join your team in the physical workplace, or they work remotely kilometers away.

Sterling Identity Verification Helps You:

  • Accelerate time-to-hire to secure top talent
  • Verify candidate identity remotely
  • Deter and detect identity fraud at the very start of candidate engagement
  • Improve the candidate hiring experience

Modernize the
Candidate Experience

Show candidates that your business is committed to creating a safe workplace with fast, modern, and convenient technology. With Sterling Identity Verification, candidates can complete the process in minutes across any device.
Step 1 - Request Verification
Start the process by sending a Canadian Criminal Record Check, with Sterling Identity Verification as an option.
Step 2 - Snap Images
Your candidate follows simple, guided steps to snap pictures of their identity documents and themselves with the device of their choice. Artificial intelligence-powered software validates each document, and facial recognition technology matches the candidate’s selfie to the photo on the identity document.

Sterling’s identity verification algorithms verify your candidate’s identity and provide near-instant results.
