Training Overview

Rebuild with a safe and verified team. Use employment screening to spot red flags.

As America emerges from the year-long pandemic, nonprofit organizations are eager to resume their missions with new vigor. Savvy executives and HR professionals recognize that appropriate background checks of paid and volunteer staffers are crucial to protecting their organizations from mission failure, PR crises, lawsuits, and loss of stakeholder support and confidence.

To bring the right people on board, you need to know when and how to conduct background checks. The right background checks for senior management candidates may not be the same as for more junior staffers, and both may differ from what is required to vet your volunteers.
