The organizational chart provides a visual expression of the organizational structure and displays the various organizational units, their hierarchy, and the connections between them.
Organizational structure is the hierarchical arrangement of lines of authority, communications, rights and duties of an organization. It determines how the roles and responsibilities are assigned, controlled, and coordinated, and how information flows between the different levels of management.
The structure depends on the organization’s objectives and strategy. In a centralized structure, the top layer of management has most of the decision making power and has tight control over departments and divisions. In a decentralized structure, the decision making power is distributed and the departments and divisions may have different degrees of independence.
Outsourcing refers to carrying out a portion of the activities of the company / organization by employees of a third-party provider and under its management.

Overtime hours are working hours that exceed the regular framework of a workday or work week. Deviation from this framework enables the employer to meet deadlines and cope with temporary overload of work. The employee is entitled to compensation for overtime, according to which the hourly wage for first two hours of overtime each day is at least 125% of the regular hourly wage. Working time beyond that is compensated with at least 150% of the regular hourly wage.
