Protect My Ministry and Paylocity, a Match Made in Heaven

Streamline Your Onboarding Process

Get started quickly with our self-service onboarding flow. Once credentialed, run background checks directly from Paylocity's recruiting module - reducing manual input and decreasing time to serve.

Improve Compliance and Turnaround Times

Our integration takes the guesswork out of being compliant. Once you click order, we send an email to the applicant that captures the personal information needed to run a background check as well as signatures on all legally required consent forms. We follow up with the applicant and verify that the information we receive is accurate which enables faster turnaround times and ensures improved compliance.

Background Checks Right for You

Our most-ordered background check packages are pre-loaded into your Paylocity account through the integration. If you want to customize by role or location, simply create custom packages within the Protect My Ministry dashboard and they automatically flow into your Paylocity account.

Screening You Can Trust

You will be able to choose from one of our pre-set packages and create and save your own custom packages.
