|English term or phrase: direct report|
|In corporate ranking who is "direct report"? The way I understand a "report" is someone to whom you are placed under so whatever are your assignments you report to he/she about the results, is not? Or other way round? Please help me to clarify this.|
Newly assigned Financing Manager XXXX report to Financing Director YYYY.
In this YYYY is XXXX's superior, correct?
It's the opposite. If I say that I have three direct reports, I mean that there are three people who report to me, I'm their manager.
If X reports to Y, X is Y's direct report, and Y is X's manager.
