Learn More About the RISQ Group

The RISQ Group was a key acquisition made by Sterling in June 2016. RISQ, an industry leader in employment background checks across the Asia-Pacific region, is widely recognized for high-quality background screening programs and its deep client-centric focus. RISQ operates out of six offices in the Asia-Pacific region, including Singapore, Australia, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Mainland China.

RISQ’s mission is to build the best employment screening and verification offering in the APAC region. Standing behind this mission is a unique combination of innovative thinking and decades of frontline employment screening and verification experience that knows exactly how to best protect organizations throughout the entire employment life cycle. With RISQ Group, the customer knows that it is getting a team of people devoted to delivering the best employment screening and verification available. And it knows that this team is also committed to developing and executing next generation screening and verification technologies that will keep its clients protected and well ahead of the curve.

KNOWN Verification Tool

RISQ has developed KNOWN, a verification tool built for the sharing economy, created to enhance trust and transparency. The temporary or contractor worker sector of the economy is growing at a rapid rate and will continue to affect the economies and political systems around the globe. KNOWN employs a badge system that informs the marketplace that a participant has been screened in a particular area (e.g., criminal, licensing, education, etc.) At present, two KNOWN badges, police check and licensing, are being employed by Service Seeking, one of Australia’s largest gig economy companies. RISQ Group is in advanced stage trials with several other platforms.  RISQ sees an advantage in developing a localized on-demand economy screening tool like KNOWN with clearly identified badges and a local-point of contact with deep knowledge of regional screening protocols and regulatory frameworks.
