An organization chart, or org chart, shows the structure of a company by showing the different levels of management. It shows the different positions in a company or organization and then shows their direct subordinates.
An org chart has a structure similar to that of a family tree. The highest authority of the company (for example, the CEO) is placed at the top of the tree, and all subordinates branch below that box based on rank. The exception is assistants such as secretaries. Their box is connected to the branch below the person whom they assist.
A box may be used for each individual. Alternatively, a box may represent a position; for example, if there are multiple managers, there could be a box labeled "Managers", with the option to list each individual's name below. Depending on the purpose of the org chart, contact information such as a phone number or email address may be listed.
