Supervisory Organization

A logical grouping of workers to the same manager through a position-to-position hierarchical structure, which represents a single, direct, primary management relationship (in the form of a hierarchy) of employees who report to the same manager.

A supervisory organization can be a business unit, department, group, or project. Jobs, positions, and compensation structures are associated with supervisory organizations, and workers are hired into jobs or positions associated with a supervisory organization. Departments may have multiple supervisory organizations. Business processes can be assigned to a supervisory organization. All approvals and checklists are established for the supervisory organization hierarchy, with possible variations for particular organizations within that hierarchy.
