The importance of transparent organisational charts
Organisational structures give clarity and guidance to all employees by demonstrating the reporting relationships that govern the workflow of the company. A formal outline of a company’s structure also makes it easier to identify new positions within the organisation for HR teams and external recruiters.
Easy to see and clear icons demonstrate the status of the user, allowing managers and other users to see what stage of the onboarding process the employee is at. For example, user-activated, activation code sent, waiting for the user to activate, activation code not sent or user deactivated. Employee names, titles, teams and positions are depicted within the chart, with lines linking them to other employees and departments.
Types of org structures
There are a number of factors that differentiate small-business operations from large-business operations, of which an organisational structure is one of the key factors. Organisational structure is important for any growing company to provide guidance and clarity on resource allocation and managerial authority. Small-business owners should begin thinking about a formal structure early in the growth stage of their business. Some examples of structures include ‘flat’ and ‘tall’ structures, this depends on the number of layers management within the organisation.
Visualising the future of your organisation
Not only do org charts allow key stakeholders to visualise the current hierarchy, it also allows HR personnel to plan for potential growth, highlight resource gaps and explain managerial relationships.
Investors, bankers, lenders, insurers and many other shareholders may also ask to see a chart of your business structure.
Giving new colleagues confidence
For the new hire, your organisation chart can be a lifeline, helping them to learn names and titles and to better understand where they fit into the overall structure. New hires get names thrown at them constantly and the org chart can be a great resource to find out who all those people actually are. Any employee, in fact, can benefit from having their co-workers names, photos, and professional and personal profiles at their fingertips.
