Common Misconceptions of Volunteer Background Screening: An Interview
Posted Thursday, October 12th, 2017 by Sterling Volunteers Staff
It’s easy to make assumptions when it comes to volunteer background screening, especially if you are someone who has worked in the nonprofit world for some time. If you deal with volunteers day in and day out, recruiting, onboarding and screening volunteer candidates, you may think you know all there is to know. But even folks here at Sterling Volunteers don’t know everything about volunteer screening, especially when they just join the organization.
In order to shed some light on some very common volunteer background screening misconceptions, we thought we would interview a new employee at Sterling Volunteers – who has no prior experience in the volunteer background screening sector – and ask about some of the surprising misperceptions they had before joining our team.What have you learned since coming onboard that has surprised you? Being more familiar with screening now, what do you think are some of the major misconceptions about screening that are important to clear up?
Volunteer managers, you too were once new to the world of volunteer candidate screening – we would like to hear what surprised you most when learned more about it. Connect with us on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn to share!
