Since our inception in 1969, Sterling employees have been a cornerstone in providing clients with innovative engineering and recruitment services. We’re proud to offer every employee a high quality and comprehensive employee benefit program.  In an industry where employees are challenged by shrinking benefit packages, Sterling views the employee benefit program as a critical success factor in hiring and retaining top engineering and technical talent – providing our customers with not only the experience and expertise of our employees, but also an unparalleled level of stability and commitment.


Current employees can find information and resources about benefits, payroll, and paid time off below.


Health Insurance

Sterling provides company co-paid major medical, prescription, dental, short term disability, and life insurance. Our plan is with an established and broad network of doctors and health care facilities. Employees also have the option of a pre-tax Health Savings Account (HSA) to save and pay for medical expenses.


Holiday Pay

Sterling recognizes the importance of having a benefit to rely on when a customer office or facility is closed due to a Holiday. Our employees receive paid time off for major holidays each year.


Paid Vacation/Personal Time

Throughout the course of their employment, employees accrue additional paid time off for vacation/personal time purposes.


401k Savings Plan

Our 401k plan is an exceptional benefit that provides tax deferred, long-term savings for employees.  Employees also become eligible for company matching contributions.


Electronic Time Tickets

Employee hours worked are recorded and approved electronically. This system allows employees to view current and past time reports, check the status of vacation accruals, expense reimbursements and other payroll related information.



Referral Program

Employees are our best resource for referrals – they know others in their field who are also very good at what they do.  We offer a bonus incentive to employees who refer a qualified candidate who is hired.


Company Events

Sterling understands the importance and value of building strong, lasting relationships with all of its employees. Along with company events held throughout the year, we also offer employees the opportunity to become involved with various charitable, industry-related and community events.
