Datasource Provides Nonprofits Background Checks

Datasource Provides Nonprofits Background Checks introduces charities to a proven service for employee and client screening.

“Life is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get.” A phrase that was born in 1994, spoken as the opening scene in the forever memorable, “Forrest Gump”. The hiring process can be unpredictable and deciding who to bring onto your staff is tough but running a background check seems simple, right? It should be as easy as entering in your candidate’s information and getting the results you need. Unfortunately, background screening is not black and white. Each state has its own set of regulations and requirements for background screening, which may lead you to believe checking those boxes will offer you an adequate report. Did you know that most of those requirements are localized to the state you are in? Unless your applicant has resided in that state for the entirety of their life, you may be missing pertinent information on their background check. That is where we come in. We will be your expert guide every step of the way. We take a very educational approach when it comes to screening staff, volunteers, and tenants. The background screening process is not consistent nationwide. It is not even consistent statewide. Each county can report or more importantly, not report; any way they choose. When it comes to working with money or an at risk population like children or the elderly, you cannot take the risk of screening inadequately. As previously stated, reporting criminal records from counties is all over the map. You could spend $500 on a background check for your candidate and still miss information. So what are you supposed to do? The only thing you can – run a comprehensive search to the best of your ability with the information you are able to obtain.

Our approach in guiding you to run a search that helps you sleep at night is to inform, educate, and provide the resources necessary to do so. Our Enhanced Nationwide is a baseline search and, while it does provide you with a wide array of information that is needed, including checking every state’s sex offender registry, running that alone without a County Criminal search or State Repository is a huge risk. Too often we see clients choose to move forward with a candidate based on a seemingly clear background check, only find out that the candidate had a lengthy criminal history that wasn’t reported to the database. In most of these cases, searching the candidate’s county of residence would have saved them from this common mistake. It’s important to remember, everyone is entitled to a job or volunteer program; just not EVERY job or volunteer program. It’s your job to figure out if they are the right fit for you, and it’s our duty to educate you on the best way to do so. With non-profits, we understand there are budgetary restrictions when it comes to the cost of each background check. Which is why we offer a hyperlink you can provide to your volunteers that can prompt for self-payment. We guide you in the right direction, getting the best search for the cost.
