Volunteer Background Screening

Volunteer background screening is a critical part in the volunteer recruitment process. It can also be quite time-consuming, and Volgistics is committed to making volunteer management as simple as possible.

To make volunteer screening and management more effective, Volgistics has partnered with Verified First to streamline the volunteer background check process.

Connecting Volgistics to Verified First through a simple browser extension allows you to send basic details about the volunteer to Verified First.

Is my data still private?

Yes! Our partnership with Verified First doesn't provide them with any access to the Volgistics system directly. Instead, their browser extension will pull a few volunteer details (like their name, email address, and phone numbers) from the screen, and only send it to the Verified First system when you ask it to.

How much does background screening cost?

Background screening is completely handled through Verified First, and pricing can vary based on several factors like the number of screens per month and the types of screening you require. You can get a quote from Verified First, or contact their support if you have more questions.

You can learn more about these options on the Verified First website.

On average, how long does it take to receive results?

There are many factors that go into the turn-around time for background screening, and different parts can take more or less time to complete. Typically though, you can expect results in 2-3 business days on average. Verified First has a blog post that explains some of the complexities about this question.

Can I use a different service?

Of course! Many of our customers use other services for background screening, and can continue to do so. To use another service, you'll just need to manually send all of the details. This partnership just makes it a little easier to use Verified First.
