Creating an Organizational Chart

Today's post is contributed by Nario Young, who works in the accounting and HR department at ReadyTalk.

ReadyTalk is a company that has built a culture that is warm and welcoming to new employees. We care about employees and want them to fit in right from the beginning.

But for new employees, it can be a  challenging task to learn the names and faces of existing employees. And, because ReadyTalk is growing so quickly, it can be hard for old timers to get to know new employees.

We needed an organizational chart so  we can familiarize with names and faces as we walk by each time.

So we did it, we mapped out all employees and sorted by departments. We cut and pasted and made a few big posters. We planned to add new employees and make major updates every quarter.

It is totally wrong!  As our business is growing rapidly, we had to add lots of people, move people to other departments and take a couple of people off. The chart got messy. We said good bye to the old chart and switched to a magnetic whiteboard. Each employee has his/her own magnet and the departments are color coated. It allows me to easily add new employees and shift things around.

Now, we just have to keep employees from moving pieces.

How does your company keep it's organizational chart and help people learn names and faces?
