Why do we verify our users' identities?

Work for Impact verifies the identities of all its users to ensure both clients and freelancers can enjoy a safe working environment.

Why We Verify Our Clients

Our platform is designed specifically for socially and environmentally responsible organizations and nonprofits. Identity verification helps us ensure that any individual or organization that joins our platform as a client meets these strict requirements.

But it’s not just our standards that need to be upheld. Freelancers who join Work for Impact want to know that they are working for ethical organizations. By verifying all of our clients’ information, freelancers can be confident that any individual or organization they interact with on our platform lives up to those standards.

Why We Verify Our Freelancers 

We also encourage our freelancers to verify their identities. This process helps keep Work for Impact safe by identifying fraudulent individuals who may otherwise have looked to take advantage of legitimate users.

Freelance platforms that don’t verify their freelancers expose themselves to scammers and bad actors who aren't who they claim to be. These people steal jobs from qualified freelancers and dilute their value.

When a large number of freelancers fail to meet expectations, it hurts the earning potential of everyone. Organizations become more reluctant to hire freelancers and aren’t willing to pay as much for their services.

By verifying all of our freelancers, we’re able to remove anyone who might hurt the reputation of our workforce. This ensures that Work for Impact is a place where qualified freelancers can thrive.
