Human resources is one of the most vital parts of an organization. After all, it manages the most valuable assets of a business: its people. That means there are many moving parts to HR—from documenting organization structure to hiring to employee management.
HR teams need extensive documentation to ensure processes are consistent and information is organized. However, with the number of tasks an HR team has to tackle daily (plus whatever spontaneously arises), documentation can feel like an afterthought.
With Lucid, you can make the process effortless with our HR documentation templates.
Lucid allows you to visualize your documents, gain stakeholder buy-in, clarify complex information, and encourage team collaboration. In this post, you’ll find templates to help you create an org chart, plan a training event, manage your recruiting process, onboard a new hire, and more.
Templates for organizational structure
A clear visual of the company’s organizational structure is critical for HR teams. These templates are specifically designed to help teams visualize their organization in different ways and make informed decisions based on those visuals.
