When Ken Dawson, Bill White, and Robert Vale left a large corporation in 1994, they decided their next endeavor should be a hiring solution that could change the world. They wanted to do it better than anyone else by combining technology with a company culture that puts its people, and candidates, first. The rest is history. What began as Compass, a web-based data provider geared towards addressing the emerging information needs of the security industry in 1995, is now ClearStar, the premier choice for background checks and drug screening solutions that provide critical data on candidates across many industries and businesses around the globe. No matter if you are looking for criminal background check for volunteers or background screening for financial institutions, ClearStar will always have a solution!
ClearStar was unique in the way they analyzed our screening process and focused on eliminating bottlenecks, reducing touch points, and driving a much-improved candidate experience. Their US-based customer service team wraps their solution in a wonderful bow. We highly recommend ClearStar—they have exceeded our expectations.”
ClearStar is driven by data, technology, service, and results. But more than anything, we are defined by our Core Values. Our core values light the way for our team. They drive every decision we make and have been an integral part of the success we’ve experienced throughout the years. They also give our clients and their candidates a look at the experience they can expect from us every time.
Quality first! Anticipate needs and stay a step ahead. Build meaningful relationships that last a lifetime. Improve confidence and loyalty with every interaction.
Own it! Always do the right thing. “Be” the resolution, act quickly with integrity and always follow up and follow through.
Be open and honest with each other and embrace tough conversations. When approached with positive intent and respect they yield the best outcomes for the organization and team.
Help and support each other. Recognize and celebrate others’ success. Enjoy the journey, have fun, and remember nothing of significance in the world is accomplished alone.
Make winning a habit! We set the standard and winning is engrained in everything we do. Outperform the competition to create an advantage and be number one in the minds of our partners and customers.
Be courageous, fail fast, and learn faster! Creatively approach every task and obstacle to find original solutions. Be unconstrained and dare to disrupt the status quo.
Our mission is to help make the world a safer place through background screening. However, we believe that keeping people safe should extend beyond our clients to those who live and work around us. To expand our company mission, we created the ClearStar Community Program with the purpose of donating background screening services to local, non-profit organizations that serve young people. We hope that by doing what we do best—background screening—we can play an integral part in serving our communities.
