A successful non profit organisation needs to be governed by clear policies and procedures. These need to be written down in a reference guide or manual, and every employee must understand and adhere to them. A manual helps your organisation to:
- Formally record the policies you adopt as an organisation.
- Provide a clear and comprehensive guide to those policies, together with the procedures your organisation has approved to implement those policies.
- Create a clear, protective environment for staff and other stakeholders.
- Build the confidence of funders and other stakeholders in the management of the organisation.
Based on our 20 years of experience working with non profits, Ziyo has compiled two generic manuals, which we provide in electronic format:
Generic Finance Policies and Procedures Manual

Generic Human Resource (Employment) Policies and Procedures Manual
The Ziyo Employment Manual provides generic policies and procedures that take account of the legislative background, together with some statement forms. The generic manual can be adapted in-house or with the support of Ziyo.
