About 140,000 new jobs are expected for engineers between 2016 to 2026. As a growing engineering company, putting up an organizational chart might not be on your priority list. However, you must understand that an organizational structure is more than just outlining the positions and jobs of employees within an organization. It increases transparency and visibility throughout the company and ensures that human capital is in line with your vision and strategies.
With an organizational chart, also known as an organogram, you can clearly see your team's contributions and how they communicate to work towards a common goal. Follow the steps provided below on how you can create an organizational chart for your engineering company in Word. It's best to use Microsoft Word because of its easy-to-use tools.
How can you create the org chart if you don't have all the needed information with you? Go through your company documents to get the list of your departments, positions, and names. Don't forget to verify if the employees on the list are still working in your company. Also, make sure that the spelling of names are correct.
There are different layout structures that you can work with when it comes to organizational charts. Among the most used structures are hierarchical, matrix, and flat. Hierarchical groups employees into teams, which report to one manager only. Matrix puts together individuals with the same expertise and makes them work on similar tasks. Flat, also known as horizontal organizational chart, has no middle management levels, which allows employees to decide on their own. What you choose depends on how big your company is.
It's time to build the chart. Open Microsoft Word on your PC or laptop and create a new document. Select a shape, then input your text. Continue doing the same process until all departments, positions, and names are put inside a shape. As you add the shapes, connect it to each other using a line. If you don't want to go through the hassle of creating one from scratch, use our ready-made templates below. Keep saving your work from time to time, or you'll lose your work if Microsoft Word suddenly stops working.
Once you're done forming the chart, it's time to add your company logo and color. To add your company logo, go to Insert Picture, find and select your logo, then click Insert. There you have it! Your logo is now on your document. To add color to the shapes, go to Shape, Format tab, then click the Shape Fill command. Choose from the hundreds of colors in Word.
Sometimes you never know if you've made any mistakes unless you review it. Don't print the organizational chart right away. Review your work twice to ensure that there no more errors and mistakes. After polishing your work, hit Save, then print it. Post this in the office for all the employees to see.
