With a growing and ever-changing international faculty and workforce, the Interamericano team needed a way to create flexible, detailed organizational charts to foster communication and collaboration throughout the organization.
Colegio Interamericano boasts over 240 staff, including many temporary contractors, and there are considerable staff changes year over year. “Before adopting Organimi, we were creating manual org charts, rather than using a dedicated application,” explains Helen Williams, Organizational Effectiveness Specialist at Interamericano. “They were time-consuming to create and update, and provided only minimal information.”
The school’s HR team needed an org chart solution that was easy to use but powerful and flexible enough to incorporate information like staff photos, email addresses, and LinkedIn profiles. “We also have staff members that work in multiple divisions and groups,” says Williams. “We needed a solution that could reflect those multiple reporting relationships. Plus, our board is always looking for detailed, updated staff information, and with manual org charts, it was difficult to provide timely, accurate reporting.”
With our rapid growth, we needed more control and the ability to add specific information. Organimi makes it easy for us.
The Colegio Interamericano HR team has been using Organimi for over three years, initially discovering it through a Google search for best in class org chart tools. At first, the team used Organimi to create basic org charts for the school, then enhanced those charts with more information as time went on. “Organimi was easy to implement and begin using,” says Williams. “Then, after we added staff pictures and got very positive feedback, we began adding other information like email addresses and LinkedIn data.”
The Interamericano team recently upgraded to Organimi Version 7.0, and users have embraced the new look, redesigned user interface, and enhanced capabilities of the latest release. “With our rapid growth, we needed more control and the ability to add specific information,” says Williams. “Organimi makes it easy for us. And, when we had questions, the Organimi customer service team responded very quickly with clear and helpful answers.”
Using Organimi has significantly reduced the time it takes for Williams and her team to create and maintain the school’s org charts. And Organimi’s ability to capture multiple reporting relationships has helped staff members navigate those complex reporting structures, improving overall collaboration.
The enhanced Organimi charts have also been a big hit with the school’s internal stakeholders. “Our board members are always asking for more detailed, updated information,” explains Williams “Organimi helps us to be much more organized and meet those expectations.”
Looking ahead, the Interamericano team plans to integrate even more employee information into its org charts. “We have a lot of information in formats like Google forms,” says Williams. “So we are going to explore capabilities like Organimi’s direct integration with Google Workspace. Overall, Organimi’s been a pleasure to use and very useful for our organization.”
