If you have User Profile Service Application up and running and synchronized with Active Directory (or any other Directory Service supported) you could implement MySite where you have Organizational Chart out of the box.

When implemented, it will reflect any changes in the Directory Service and doesn't need to be configured due to future organizational changes.

Org Chart

Displays an organization chart. The chart shows the user's position in the organization among management, peers, and direct reports. You can select other people from the chart to view their profiles.

    @PriyankaRajput The org chart is hidden on your own about me page by default, but if you visit another member of your organization you will see it under their about me page
