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.

Key questions:

Do we need to recruit specific roles?

Is the recruitment process good enough?

Are employees generally happy with their work environment?

Do people have the right kind of support?

Example of People & Culture OKRs

You'll find below an example built around a fictitious company. Your OKRs should move from quarter to quarter and map to your company's reality – that's why we thought it's best to illustrate things as a case study that you can take inspiration from.

How to track your People & Culture OKRs?

There are many options available out there but we're generally seeing 2 categories of products emerging.

For teams getting started: Spreadsheets

Spreadsheets are a great way to get started with OKRs. They're flexible and familiar, and they reduce the amount of learning when you're still getting comfortable with the Objectives and Key Results process.

But, you'll probably start to feel some friction as adoption grows. The lack of check-ins workflows and trends makes it hard for spreadsheet to be a long-term solution for OKRs.

For seasoned OKRs team: OKRs-tracking software

If you're looking to simplify your OKRs process, then a dedicated goal-tracking platform is best to keep track of your OKRs at scale.

A platform like Tability will automate the check-ins reminders, provide progress charts and dashboards out of the box, and make the whole experience more collaborative.

Focus tip:

Frequent check-ins are the key to staying on track with your OKRs. Checking progress early and often will tell you what you should and shouldn't focus on. Make check-ins a part of your weekly ritual with Tability →
