Engineering OKR Examples
Sample OKRs along with relevant discussions, organised by function
While human resources teams all over organization play a vital part in tracking employee performance, similar processes for them have been few and far in between. These human resources OKR examples can shed light on using data to streamline the functions of HR, and kick off the thinking in right direction. These levels of OKRs are indicative & will differ for organizations with different sizes, stages & maturity of OKR processes.
Company level OKRs
|Transform the company environment to one of the most employee friendly work culture||While the KRs are very well aligned with the objective, they need to have a due date for measuring the improvement. These can be reworked as:
Team Level OKRs
|Increase Employee Engagement by Q4 FY 2017-18||
||The 3rd KR is a task with no apparent impact on the objective. It can be modified to, “Document 20 most common complaints per day and rectify them to prevent re-occurrence” for better alignment with the objective.|
|Improve the performance management process by Q4 FY 2017-18||
||The first two KRs are informative, but don’t provide meaningful information like the 3rd one. Rewording them to ‘Implementation of OKR methodology in Q2 FY 2017-18 led to 80% employees gaining clarity in their goal setting process’ and ‘Initiation of continuous feedback led to 75% employees participating in regular exchange of feedback during Q2 FY 2017-18’ will help in better understanding of, and see the improvement in, HR processes.|
|Provide employees with better options to unwind at work||The KRs for this objective must have a way to measure the efficiency of the current KRs for better understanding. Rewording the KRs to reflect this, will provide actionable insights.
|Recruit employees as per each department’s need||
|Organize training and development initiatives for the entire organization||
Individual level OKRs
|Organize extra-curricular activities for employees||
