Organizational Network Analysis, or ONA, is a research-backed methodology that allows anyone in the organization to review any other person. Reviews could be positive or negative. This approach matches the way we get work done today because it’s cross functional and in networks.

At Confirm, ONA data is used to identify key influencers, "gold star" contributors, and folks who may need additional support for one reason or another. We gather this data by asking your organization 4 simple questions:

  1. During the past performance period, who at your organization energized you?

  2. During the past performance period, who at your organization did you go to for help and advice?

  3. Over the past performance period, who do you consider to be a "Gold Star" contributor?

  4. Over the past performance period, who do you believe needs additional support or attention?

These 4 ONA questions help answer many questions and uncover meaningful data such as:

  • Who are my top contributors?

  • Who do I need to make sure is sticking around?

  • Who do I need to retain?

  • Do we know how are they making an impact?

  • Why are people saying they’re great?

  • What does our talent inventory look like?

  • Who do I need to be concerned about, or rather who is the organization concerned about?
