Which of Sterling’s values resonates most with you / your experience?

“'We Build Through Trust.' I believe our success with our clients has been largely built on our excellent work, but perhaps even more so by being transparent, straightforward and honest. We call things how we see them. We don't pretend to know more than we do...or less. When something doesn't go right, we own it and share why. And as a result, our clients know they can trust what we tell them, and they come back again and again. We apply the same approach to our team internally.”
