Matrix organization

A matrix organization in the human resources industry is a management structure where employees report to multiple managers, typically both a functional manager and a project manager. This dual reporting system allows for greater flexibility and specialization in complex projects.

In a matrix organization, an HR specialist may report to both the HR department head (functional manager) and a project manager when working on a cross-functional project such as organizational restructuring. This ensures alignment with HR policies while addressing project-specific needs.
