Sounds strange but the chances of these HR OKRs being right for you is low. What we’d recommend you do is follow a simple 4 stage process:

  1. Name your Strategic Priorities – 2 – 4 is best
  2. Name the Objectives and Key Results that would allow you execute the strategy. Add Key Results have SMART meaningful measurements and will allow you to track progress weekly
  3. Name the Initiatives (Projects / Epics / To-do’s etc.) that would drive these OKRs or KRs
  4. If another OKR would help contribute to the achievement of the above OKR or specific KR then do steps 2 and 3 again
