What is a Corporate Organisational Chart
Companies need a good organisation chart in order to have a quick overview of their ownstructure. In this way, it is much easier to analyse the situation of the entity itself, as well as the different departments and teams that make it up. This is key to optimise the internal communication of the organisation, but also so that customers and suppliers know who to contact in each case. Optimising these company organisational charts is the job of the Human Resources department. As a Human Resources consultancy, Melt Group is going to give you the keys on how to make a company organisation chart. Our Strategic Consultancy services include Job Descriptions. This allows us to draw up a clear and well thought-out organisation chart for the business. What we want is that there is a coherent order, marking out departmental and job functions clearly. Ideally, an organisational chart should be drawn up a priori, i.e. when the company is set up. However, this document may be subject to modifications by HR experts, depending on different parameters. Having a well-organised company will help us to successfully meet the objectives set. Hence the importance of the company organisation chart.
Making a good team requires a good strategy.
There are many challenges we face if we are in charge of human resources in a company. Overcoming each one of them is essential to achieve business success. At our human resources consultancy, Melt Group, we are committed to designing ad hoc strategies for our clients.
Experience, knowledge of the sector and the technology used are necessary for the success ofthese strategies.
How to make a company organisation chart
Basically, it is the graphic representation of the company’s structure at the Human Resources level. It allows us to provide a clear visualisation of the departments and their managers. Thanks to the organisation chart, the order of professional categories is very clear, which will allow employees to know to whom they must be accountable or give feedback.
It can be defined as a simple, concise and easy-to-interpret diagram showing the structure of a business organisation. Its usefulness is very varied, as it is ideal for the Human Resources department to have real and quality information on the structure of the business. But it also provides internal improvements in terms of communication between departments and workers. In addition, the organisation chart is key to show transparency to customers and suppliers.
Depending on the type of company, the organisation chart may vary. The most important thing is to design a scheme that represents each organisation in a particular way, taking into account its own needs.
What should the scheme include?
Obviously, the organisational chart should clearly show who exercises the leadership of the company. They are the decision-makers and must approve proposals from other departments in the business. To be a good business leader, you have to know the sector and offer quality solutions, both internally and externally.
We would define them as the managers of the organisation. They function as the link between the business leaders and the employees themselves. Middle managers have the task of overseeing the functioning of an area of the company.
These are the workers who carry out the functions of the company. They have contact with the middle management.
Temporary employees whose mission is to support the basic workers in their functions.
Having a company organisation chart allows us to have a well-organised and ordered staff within the organisation. Its usefulness and advantages are multiple:
• It allows the company’s objectives to be well defined.
• It provides transparency for internal promotions within the company.
• It clearly shows the professional levels of the business, i.e. the chain of command.
• It defines the personal relationships in the different departments of the company.
• It optimises the distribution of tasks and resources among the organised teams.
• It makes it easier to detect structural errors or deficits in the company’s chain of command.
• Improves internal communication within the company.
• It clearly shows who the leaders of each team are, providing quality information on who is the authority within the business
Types of organisational charts in the company
The company organisation chart can vary depending on the needs of each company. The truth is that nowadays there are different options to hierarchise the jobs of an entity.
Organisational chart according to the information they provide
- Informative: they show a complete and broad outline of the company, but only provide important information.
- Analytical: provides detailed data. Therefore, it is more concrete than the previous one. Its function is to improve interdepartmental relations and favour possible internal investigations.
- Formal: its purpose is to provide clear information on the organisation of the entity and requires management approval.
- Informal: it does not need to be approved by the company’s management team.
Organisational chart depending on the type of organisation
- Hierachical: this is usually the most common in today’s organisations. It is structured in a pyramidal way, in order to optimise resources and business communication.
- Matrix: when the company has more than one director, this is the organisation chart that can best represent the structure of the business.
- Flat: This is a slightly different option, as it does not reflect the middle management. We only have access to management and employees in general.
Organisational chart according to business needs
- General: posts and positions are clearly specified.
- Integral: it is more complete and reflects well the different departments.
- Functional: it is the most complex and complete, as it includes each and every one of the positions in the company.
Organisational chart according to its design
- Vertical: this is the most common, as it shows the information through a pyramid of data.
- Horizontal: the order is established from left to right, with the most important management positions on the left-hand side.
- Circular: in the centre of the circle we see the leaders and in the rest of the rings the rest of the departments are shown.
- Mixed: this is a combination of the vertical and horizontal organisation chart.
How do we work at Melt Group?
Within our Job Description service we carry out a prior assessment. In this way we can develop a well-planned and detailed organisation chart. We usually opt for the hierarchical company organisation chart, although the selection of one type or another depends on many parameters that we study carefully.
By studying the company’s Human Resources, we establish the different job categories that will be in the resulting organisation chart. We describe each of the positions and set down on paper what their mission is and the tasks to be carried out.
It is possible that after the analysis of the jobs we determine that it is necessary to establish the creation of a specific job, which did not exist until now. The objective is to improve labour productivity and the quality of work.
Having an updated and well hierarchical organisation chart is key for the jobs to be perfectly defined. Our team of consultants develops the company organisation chart based on the specific needs of each company. We are very detailed and we ensure a perfectly organised organisation chart, with detailed and well-structured job descriptions.
The company organisation chart fulfils a clear function within any entity. If you have any doubts about the design of this type of document, please contact Melt Group. Our team specialised in Human Resources will help you find the best organisational solution for your business.
