OKRs for HR, People & Culture Teams

Human Resources has been going through some changes to expand into team culture and happiness. The focus stays the same though: building a great team and creating an environment where folks can do their best work.

OKRs will help new People & Culture teams to set their priorities and keep track of progress every quarter.
