An org chart graphically depicts the internal structure and hierarchies of an organization. It enables one to visualize the roles, relative ranks and the relationships between individuals. It’s also called organizational chart or organigram.
What does it look like?
Org charts usually use the inverted tree structure, with small boxes representing employees and lines connecting the boxes. The boxes will be filled with staff information such as their name, department, position, etc. The horizontal lines connect employees with the same level, and the vertical lines indicate the reporting relationship between a superior and the subordinate.
