Guidance on Faith-based hiring and compliance with CHS Commitment 8

This resource refers to the 2014 edition of the Core Humanitarian Standard (CHS). A more accessible CHS will launch in March 2024. To find out more about the updated CHS and transitional phase, please visit the CHS website.

As more organisations learn and measure how they meet the Core Humanitarian Standard on Quality and Accountability (CHS), this process – either through self-assessment or by a third party auditor – reveals areas where further guidance is needed in the interpretation of some CHS indicators. One such area regards faith-based hiring practices within CHS Commitment 8: Communities and people affected by crisis receive the assistance they require from competent and well-managed staff and volunteers.
