Charting a Non-Profit Organisation

Relying heavily volunteers, Non-Profits face unique challenges managing their workforce. OrgChart Platinum includes a prebuilt template for Non-Profit organisations. Here we see a basic organisational layout of a Non-Profit organisation identifying the Staff and the Volunteers positions that make up the human resources of the organisation.

Charting Employee Performance

A nine-box is a common way to display employee performance and span of control. OrgChart offers built-in nine-box support, allowing you import your all your employee data then superimpose nine-charts on your org chart to provide a snapshot of performance across your organisation.

Many organisations have contractors working at a variety of levesls. OrgChart lets you highlight contractors and the positions they hold, from key managers to individual contributors, allowing you to see their impact across your organisation.

Identifying Critical Staff Performance

This organisational chart identifies critical, key and performance of individuals in the company. OrgChart allows you to set criteria based upon key metrics that your HR department uses then apply formatting to those metrics to visualise those metrics across a group or the entire organisation.
