Organisational Network Analysis: The Future of People Analytics


Facilitator: Marcus Gee

Date: Friday 7th June 2019

Time: 10am - 4.30pm

Location: The Linnean Society of London, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London W1J 0BF


Organisational Network Analysis (ONA) is a cutting-edge analysis and development tool to provide insight into real workplace relationships and organisational structure. 

This workshop is designed for anyone who is interested in understanding and utilising ONA as People Analytics, OD, L&D and HR tool. 



ONA is a way to identify the hidden informal networks and relationships between individuals, the 'social capital' of an organisation. ONA also helps individuals understand their 'Social Quotient' - their own social capital and style within an employee network. 

Above and beyond the individualistic approach to performance, ONA is the next generation of psychometric, a 'sociometric' tool to identify hidden talent/HiPos, dissolve silos, improve collaboration, increase knowledge transfer, cultivate innovation, improve team and individual performance, manage change, and plan succession. 

Recent research of OD, L&D and HR leaders shows that ONA is the People Analytic trend that they want to learn most about and believe is most practical, compared to other trends such as EQ, recruitment analytics and game-based assessment. 


Key takeaways will include:

  1. Understanding what ONA is.
  2. Understanding how ONA works, including setting up and delivering an ONA project.
  3. How to interpret the analysis, visualisations and key metrics of ONA.
  4. How to integrate ONA into OD/L&D/HR projects for succession planning, knowledge transfer, change management, performance improvement and employee engagement. 
  5. What are the tangible benefits and ROI that ONA solutions offer.
