What if I can’t afford to screen my volunteers?
A: Screening volunteers and non-profit employees is an important undertaking that can actually save your organization money.
Whether you're hiring an employee or signing up a volunteer, it is important to know they are qualified for the position and eligible to represent your brand. A background check is a small investment that empowers you to find people who are qualified and well-suited for any type of work. Background reports also show you if the person has a solid work history, or if they have any criminal records of which you should be aware.
If you select someone who has a serious criminal record, such as a sexual offense, it could be devastating and costly to your organization. And if you select someone who is unlikely to stay with your organization long-term, then you will spend time and other resources on that individual, only to have to start the entire process over again.
Running a background check is the best way to protect your organization and the people you serve. A basic screening package is an economical tool that provides numerous benefits to any business or organization.
