People risk is our business.

When RISQ Group was created, the vision was simple: build the best employment screening and verification offering in the APAC region. The team identified a need in the market for a better kind of screening and verification offering and brought together an elite group of people and companies under a single brand with a single mission. In June 2016, we became part of the Sterling Talent Solutions family, amplifying our existing strengths and empowering us with the resources and efficiencies of one of the world’s leading employment screening and verification companies.

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 organisations throughout the entire employment life cycle. 

With RISQ Group, which includes the AIM Screening family of companies, 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. As a member of the Sterling Talent Solutions family, our customers know that they get the best of both worlds: a superb and highly engaged local expert fortified by a global leader in employment screening and verification.
