Volunteers are an invaluable resource across a wide variety of industries and represent a big portion of the nonprofit industry’s workforce as well as many service organizations. Even if volunteers are not considered paid employees, they still represent the organization. Their conduct will have a long-lasting effect on your organization’s reputation.
Employers Choice Screening is committed to providing cost-efficient pricing and value-added services to clients that conduct screening on volunteers. Our services may additionally be tailored to your industry to ensure we meet your individual needs.
The safety and wellness of current employees, other volunteers, and clients are compromised when the employer does not possess knowledge of a volunteer’s background. Consider that many volunteer positions deal with children, the elderly, and other at-risk groups who do not have regular oversight beyond the critical background check which you can execute.

Employers Choice Screening provides legally-compliant sex offender screening on volunteers everywhere in the Unites States. The information contained in each state is compiled from various law enforcement agencies within each county jurisdiction. Much of this county-level search is manual due to a lack of digital files made available online, but this level of searching is critical in order to ensure a quality background check which reduces your organization’s chance of exposure or risk with volunteers.
