How do I update the progress on my Goals (OKRs)? by Hero Academy Training


On the Employment Hero HR platform, the Objective, Key Results (OKRs) framework is utilised for goal setting. When using OKRs effectively, you will align and connect all your employees to your company goals.  Meaning your entire workforce will have visibility of the company goals and how their team and them as an individual can contribute towards this common purpose.

To boost employee engagement and productivity, get everyone involved with goal setting as a goal owner or collaborator. Aligning everyone to a common purpose will help them understand how the work they do is contributing and connecting them to the business.

  What are OKRs?  

OKRs are the collaborative goal-setting approach used by teams and individuals to set challenging, ambitious goals with measurable results. OKRs are how you track progress, create alignment, and encourage engagement around measurable goals using the statement:

  • I will (Objective) as measured by (Key Results).

  I know about KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) but how are they different to OKRs?  

While they both measure performance and success within a business, there are a few subtle yet important differences. OKRs are to help you achieve grand, ambitious goals. They are designed with a bold mission in mind rather than a specific tangible outcome. It is a qualitative goal. KPIs, on the other hand, are tangible outcomes with measurable results. It is a quantifiable goal.

Like KPIs, Objectives and Key Results also bring focus to the areas of the business that make the biggest difference. Unlike KPIs, OKRs are team objectives that are collaborative and operate on a company, team and individual level to promote transparency and accountability for all employees.

OKRs switch the focus from results to aspirations or goals that you can achieve by fulfilling certain tasks. Goal setting using OKRs requires businesses, teams and employees to define their desired destination, the achievements you want to achieve, and their due date. 

It also requires companies, individuals or teams to articulate what initiatives they will undertake to achieve this goal.  Remember, objectives are not measurable. They are ambitious goals or aspirations that you achieve by completing the key results.
