Engineering Department Organisation Chart
The organization chart of the Engineering department should provide a clear picture of the lines of authority and the channels of communication within the department. In a large hotel, the department is headed by the Chief Engineer who is assisted by the shift engineers.
The engineering department chart not only provides for a systematic direction of orders but also protects employees from being over-directed. The chart shows that each employee should take orders only from the person directly above them.
Also, a copy of the chart should be posted in an area so that all engineering staff can see where they fit into the overall organization of the department. Ideally, the same needs to be placed in the engineering control desk room.
