The fundamental purpose of organization chart is to communicate information. It may be used to show management structure, serve as employee reference or employee directory. When it serves as the last role, it needs to be enriched with more information, such as headshots, telephone numbers and email addresses. A detailed introduction of each staff can even be attached to the chart so that employees can know each other better through convenient Internet access.
