Functional Structures of an Organisation

The structure defines how activities such as task allocation, coordination, and supervision are directed toward the achievement of organisational aims and objectives. Employees with similar tasks, skills and experiences are grouped together not only because it’s more efficient, reduces number of communication channels and ease of accountability, but also allows the functional group to work collectively in a strategic manner.

Accounts and Finance

Responsible for efficient financial management and controls necessary for an organisation to support all their activities, including payroll, tax,billing and collecting payments.

Human Resources

Responsible for achieving a competitive advantage through strategic deployment of a highly committed and capable workforce. Tasks include recruitment process, performance management and training.

Supply Chain and Operations

Day-to-day operations, ensuring client demands are met with the right resource at the right time and managing supplier relationships. 

Information Technology

All technological integrations within an organisation, including software, hardware, network and automation are the responsibility of the IT function.

Sales and Marketing

Whilst Marketing function promotes the organisation to invite potential clients, the Sales function then turns that potential client into an actual client.
