How to Design An Organizational Chart

Organizational Charts (O-charts) are diagrams that illustrate the operational and reporting relationships among personnel, departments, or divisions in an organization. They are drawn as either horizontal or vertical trees with labeled geometric shapes representing staff or business units.
O-Charts assist in the classification review process by clearly presenting the current organizational structure. Titles with the College or Division and Department or Unit should head the page. The requested change (new position or reclassification) should be indicated on the O-chart.
The following information should be included for each EPA (Exempt from the State Personnel Act) and SPA (Subject to the State Personnel Act) position on an Organizational Chart.

  • Employee name (or Vacant) as it appears in PeopleSoft
  • Position number
  • Official EPA or SPA Classification or /Career Band Title
  • Career Band Level (for SPA positions)
  • Working title for the position is optional

Sample O-Chart
To design an organizational chart, double click on the chart to add information and add/delete fields as needed.
This requires MS PowerPoint and MS Organization Chart (usually installed with MS PowerPoint)
