Probationary period

Introduction to Probation

  1. What is meant by Probation period?
  2. Probation period can be broadly defined as a training period for newly recruited employees. It’s usually a fixed period of time at the beginning of the employment relationship, during which the new employee is exempt from some contractual items.
  3. How long the probation period lasts
  4. All the newly recruited employees are required to complete the six months of paid probationary period.
  5. All interns are required to complete the unpaid probationary period of the first three months as an Intern.
  6. What will be expected during the probationary period:
  7. The real aim of probation is to bring an effective employee on board. The new employees are expected to:
    1. Know what is expected from them during the probation period and after
    2. Develop the knowledge and skills needed to fulfill their new role, through training and support
    3. Address problems with their performance before the probation period is over
  8. What is meant by successful completion of probation period:
  9. Probation periods usually end with a review meeting between the employee and their line manager. At this meeting, the manager/ Head of Department can assess how well the new employee is performing, what his or her training needs are, and whether they’re a good fit for the company. Probation makes this possible and can help to develop the employee.
  10. After the successful completion of the probationary period, the employee is entitled as a permanent employee/full-time employee and is eligible for company benefits.
