Visier Announces ONA Data Partnership with TrustSphere

June 11, 2019

VANCOUVER, BC and NEW YORK– June 11, 2019Visier, the globally recognized leader in people analytics and planning, today announced a data integration with TrustSphere, the market leader in Relationship Analytics and Organizational Network Analysis (ONA). Through this collaboration, ONA metrics can now be viewed alongside broader people analytics data to add a new dimension to an organization’s workforce insights.

 

With the TrustSphere integration, Visier customers can now make better decisions based on previously difficult to obtain relationship network metrics, combined with other HR data. Deeper, network insights provide the context to identify hidden talent, key influencers and enable smarter strategic workforce planning.

 

“ONA has emerged as one of the hottest topics in HR right now, and for good reason. Without it, the people who truly deserve to be recognized within an organization can be overlooked,” said Ian Cook, Vice President of People Solutions  at Visier. “When a solid ONA premise is combined with the multi-dimensional people analysis of Visier, companies gain powerful and actionable insights that drive much better talent decisions.”

 

Manish Goel, CEO of TrustSphere, shared, “We’ve all heard the saying ‘it’s not what you know, rather it’s  who you know’. The science behind TrustSphere’s ONA technology measures how employees build and maintain their relationship networks and social capital. This is providing powerful workforce insights in high-potentials selection, leadership development, succession planning and diversity and inclusion. Our partnership enables Visier customers to transform their strategic workforce planning initiatives using powerful new analytics and insights. Together this allows organizations to better develop and manage their most important talent.”

 

Combining ONA with people analytics can also provide meaningful insights into the effectiveness of organizational diversity and inclusion initiatives. ONA can show D&I leaders if employees – and their managers – are building networks that foster inclusion and enable diverse employees to reach their potential. A comprehensive understanding of the relationships built, and the associated hiring, promotions and retention rates of those employees can help companies build the right internal networks for equal promotion opportunities.
