In this episode of Transform Your Workplace, host Brandon Laws talks with Josh Merrill, the CEO and Founder of Confirm, an innovative people platform utilizing Organizational Network Analysis (ONA) for performance reviews. Josh shares the transformative journey of integrating this new methodology into performance evaluations. Tune in to learn the truth about your distribution of talent, the importance of eliminating bias in performance reviews, and how to use ONA to get a pulse on your company’s top talent.



  • Talent distribution follows a power law rather than the commonly assumed bell curve which means that a few employees are creating a disproportionate impact. 

  • Since 60% of manager ratings are influenced by biases, businesses should adopt ONA to provide a more objective evaluation that focuses on network dynamics.

  • ONA, like the wisdom of the crowd, provides accurate insights by considering collective perspectives.

  • Business leaders should implement periodic evaluations to identify impactful employees and address concerns promptly.
