Management policies are framed by institutions to effectively manage their staff members. Policies help reduce risks associated with institutional management. They also help us remain compliant with existing laws and regulations in managing employees. As NGOs are also institutions, it is important for them to maintain standard practices and procedures. It is equally important for them to document these standard practices and procedures for improved transparency, good governance and accountability. Donor agencies often get impressed on seeing written policies maintained by NGOs for managing their staff and organizations.
A major advantage to have a management policy is that it reduces unnecessary conflicts, questions and misunderstandings that normally arise among employees. If employees are informed about existing policies of their offices, they are less likely to create problems. Therefore, it is important for NGOs to develop their management policy for establishing effective governance styles.
