Can you assume that job candidates seeking purpose-driven nonprofit work are automatically open and honest about their past? Trust isn’t a strategy. It’s still critical that you do background screenings on them.
Challenges: As a nonprofit organization, you serve some of our nation’s most vulnerable populations. However, striking the right balance between risk and cost may be difficult for your organization if you have to operate under limited internal resources and budget constraints. It may well be true that individuals who prioritize purpose and passion over pay and other remuneration place other values, such as your mission, over their self-interest. Or not. Like any other type of organization, it’s prudent—and a best practice—to background screen prospects as well as conduct ongoing screening of employees on a periodic basis.
Experience: Our support to you is informed by decades of in-depth experience working with nonprofits of all sizes, including some of the country’s leading 501(c)(3) organizations. We have earned the trust of mission-focused and purpose-led organizations like yours—entities such as schools, churches, and political organizations to business associations, unions, social clubs, and consumer cooperatives. We understand and honor the principles you use to make hiring decisions—such as accountability, honesty, and appreciation for any individual prepared to invest time, money, or faith in your mission.
Outcomes: Let us help you streamline your background screening operations. Even beyond the results so many of our clients engage us for—speed, accuracy, compliance, and affordability—you will benefit from factors such as our customizable background screening packages, our advanced technology integration, user-friendly interfaces, powerful data security and privacy, and transparent pricing.
