KPIs and evidencing your progress

It’s really important that you’re able to measure the progress you’re making within your organisation. We recommend that you set KPIs for the areas you are focusing on and the ways in which you will measure this progress.

To help get you started, we have created some example KPIs for each of the five key behaviours, as well as some suggested ways you can evidence this. We hope you find these useful and that they provide a starting point for you to benchmark your progress.
