Why is a volunteer background check important?

To understand how critical the background check for volunteers is, you will have to look upon the cost of not screening your volunteers. Due to technology moderation, non-profits are now able to integrate themselves with the popular screening companies at a very affordable price. The increasing accessibility factor intrigues a non-profit to hire a background screening company. The liability involved with background checks not being conducted is very high.

Although volunteers aren't paid employees on non-profit organizations, they are the face of your brand. You can't afford to look negative in public opinion. Another reason for conducting volunteer background checks is to know if they have done a similar job before. Despite not paying, you will not want an incompetent volunteer entering your workflows, resulting in time and efficiency losses. Volunteer background screening also reduces your management risk factors.
