    Default What are the different departments in a company?

    Hello Everyone!

    I'm trying to find a list of the different departments in a company. Like: Marketing, Human Resources, Finanical, Sales etc.....

    I thought a quick google search would result in a large list but I can't find one. Were in the service industry. We work with children with autism and I'm analyzing all the different departments in the company. I know I can look at our small co. and build the list but does anyone have or know where online I can get an exhaustive list please?

    Thanks !!

    I don't think you are going to find any definitive list of departments that are across the board for every organization. It's going to depend on the needs of the company and how it's structured. But there are hundreds of possibilities.
    You can literally make up any department name that you want and assign them any responsibilities that you see fit.
    Are you looking for something specific or a little more targeted?
