Wrapping your head around how a company fits together can be a bit of a challenge, especially for a new hire. Add remote work to the mix and understanding how teams fit together gets even more tedious. Creating an Org Chart is a popular fix for this problem, a neatly packaged overview of the company is perfect for presenting to new hires or even investors. But the process of creating and maintaining an accurate Org Chart? It can be painstakingly time-consuming for HR teams, especially when they don’t have the right tools at their disposal.

Introducing the Roots Org Chart

This free plugin can be downloaded in seconds and connects to your HRIS system to automatically pull details on your team members, adding them directly to the People Directory feature in Slack.
