What Is an Organizational Chart?

Organizational charts, also known as hierarchical charts and organograms, are traditionally used to show the structure of an organization and the different relationships between workers or various departments within the organization. However, they can also be used to identify gaps in your organization, highlight the performance of your employees, track their performance goals, and highlight roles and responsibilities.

How to Make an Organizational Chart?

  1. Based on whether you are creating the organizational chart for a project team, department, or the entire organization, identify each and every employee that should be represented. This may include a fair bit of research, especially if it’s a large organization. Talk to team heads or supervisors to understand the job roles and the reporting relationships between the employees they are leading.
  2. While you can start right away with one of Creately’s prebuilt org chart templates, you can enable the organizational chart shape library and start from scratch. If you are collaborating with other departmental heads, simply add them to the workspace as collaborators or share an edit link with them. With real-time previews and live mouse tracking, you can track their contributions to the org chart and stay synced even if you aren’t in the same room.
  3. With the company, department, or team head at the top of the organizational chart, add the rest of the members based on hierarchy and the reporting relationships.
  4. Drag and drop or import images of your employees right from your device to personalize your org chart.
  5. You can store additional details on each employee (such as their contact information, the projects they are working on, etc.) with the shapes’ custom properties and data fields. This way you can build a record base for further reference.
  6. Once completed, export your org chart in PDF, SVG, or PNG format to embed it in any intranet or site, or share it with others.
