How does OKR (Objectives & Key Results) contribute to employee performance?
OKR is a goal-setting platform that helps organizations execute and measure their Strategy. A well-proven framework that has been used by organizations like Intel, Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, and so on. OKRs (Objectives & Key Results) are agile, and they work well in a shorter cadence. Since they work in a shorter cadence it is possible to understand the gap in execution and correct it as and when required
OKR is an autonomous framework, hence it is powerful in creating ownerships. Once the team understands the organizational objective the teams and individuals create the objectives that help them achieve the organizational objectives. Since there is visibility to every single member of an organization towards the goal it easily increases accountability. Datalligence OKR software help organizations create and align objectives to the larger goals.

It also allows them to course correct whenever possible.

People tend to think that they work on task day in and day out. yes, every single task performed gets connected to the OKRs giving a greater understanding of what is of propriety.
Transparency creates trust
Transparency of the framework creates a sense of trust and safety for the entire team. OKRs are published transparently and owned by the Executives.

Since the team and the individuals keep constantly interacting and delivering the core priorities it increases the team collaboration and their performance.
The OKR retrospective meetings and the check-in meeting helps in creating a great conversation around OKRs. While the OKRs are set and communicated to the teams, that is half job done. The clarity in which direction one ought to travel helps in being aligned and focused and the outcomes in increasing in one performance.
