Managing volunteer background checks can be a challenging and time-consuming process, but with the right software, it can become much more efficient. In this blog post, we will discuss the best practices for managing volunteer background checks using software, specifically focusing on our product, GForce.

1. Centralize Volunteer Information

2. Easy Background Check Requests

With GForce, you can streamline the process of requesting background checks from volunteers. The software allows you to send automated email or notification reminders to volunteers, prompting them to complete their background check forms. This ensures that you have the necessary information to make informed decisions about volunteer placements.

3. Secure Document Management

GForce allows you to schedule automated reminders for volunteers to renew their background checks. This ensures that you have up-to-date information and reduces the risk of expired background checks slipping through the cracks. You can set reminders based on specific time intervals or set a custom reminder schedule.
