Confirm is the first platform to use ONA (organizational network analysis) to make performance reviews faster, fairer and more accurate and allow companies to make better people decisions based on data instead of bias.
As a practice, 360 reviews are almost 80 years old and suffer from small sample size. Only 2-3 people are reviewers and the incentive for someone being reviewed is to pick reviewers who will say positive things. With ONA, anyone can provide feedback on anyone else, unveiling patterns in feedback and making the reviews fairer and more accurate.
Fixing broken performance reviews. A fundamental challenge for businesses is measuring and understanding talent accurately and efficiently. Companies using Confirm can quickly identify 10x superstars, flight risks, great people flying under the radar, as well as people who aren’t meeting their full potential.
We’re also addressing the labor shortage as the market for top talent is still incredibly tight. It is important that businesses identify their top performers and retain them.
Feedback is summarized and provided back to each employee by their manager, just like a traditional review.
We might ask something like, “Who is making an outstanding impact at your organization?” or “Who do you go to for help and advice?” We also ask why these people were chosen to ensure we capture substance on what skills or behaviors stood out.
ONA stands for organizational network analysis, 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.
We use a standardized measurement that provides a holistic view of performance by capturing more data points from an employee’s working network. This unveils patterns and a clearer picture of where bias might exist in an organization. Research has shown that more than 60 percent of a typical performance rating can be attributed to the idiosyncrasies of the manager. Unconscious bias is one idiosyncrasy. It distorts evaluations based on race, gender, age and other irrelevant factors. With a holistic, standardized measure of performance we can diminish the impact of any biases.
