Since their emergence, wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have become increasingly popular in the pervasive computing industry. This is particularly true within the past five years, which has seen sensor networks being adapted for wide variety of applications. Most of these applications are restricted to ambience monitoring and military use, however, very few commercial sensor applications have been explored till date. For WSNs to be truly ubiquitous, many more commercial sensor applications are yet to be investigated. As an effort to probe for such an application, we explore the potential of using WSNs in the field of Organizational Network Analysis (ONA). In this short paper, we propose a WSN based framework for analyzing organizational networks. We describe the role of WSNs in learning relationships among the people of an organization and investigate the research challenges involved in realizing the proposed framework.
