Writing down and tracking your goals is one of the most effective ways of improving productivity across your teams (1). But understanding the importance of goal-setting is one thing, designing ambitious yet achievable goals is quite another. That's why we love working from templates. Sample goals give you clear guidelines to follow, helping you avoid some of the most common pitfalls. Of course, you need OKR goal templates that are relevant to your team, which is where we come in! Today, we're sharing 6 sample goals for team members working in people operations, covering some of the most common objectives that HR pros work towards across engagement, development and DEI.
