Workers who directly report to someone higher than them in the organizational hierarchy or organogram, such as a boss, supervisor, manager, team leader, or project manager, are known as direct reports. Direct Reports are also known as subordinates. An employee’s direct reports are responsible to allocate and assign the tasks to employees and monitor their performance. Also, the employee who is direct reports of another employee may also have a direct report. For instance, a sales executive reporting to the sales officer who is reporting to the sales manager.
