Many new starters need to complete a probation period before their employment contract officially starts. But, we know from experience that probation reviews are often late, if done at all. Not only can this lead to frustrated employees and reduced productivity, it could also land you in hot water contractually. But don’t worry. PerformanceHub solves this problem for you!
Keen to find out more about probation periods – then check out our discussion about the importance of probation reviews.
Read on to see how PerformanceHub can be configured to meet your probation review process requirements.
Employees on probation can still take advantage of all the great features in PerformanceHub, like Cascading Objectives, 121s, Personal Development plans, and Employee Feedback. But rather than having a performance review, probationers have a probation review at the end of their probation period.
Probations are configured separately from ‘normal’ performance reviews, so you can focus on what’s important for new starters and for your onboarding process.
You can even configure PerformanceHub so that managers get an explicit ‘onboarding objective’ whenever they get a new starter. Knowing that your manager will review how well you onboarded a new starter in your team really helps the quality of onboarding.
Interim Probation Reviews
If you need a series of reviews, building to a final review, then PerformanceHub can support this too. Each interim probation review can focus on different aspects of the onboarding and induction process. For example, one month into the probation period, the review might concentrate on induction training. The next might concentrate on basic training for the role. Then the final review more on performance in the role. It’s up to you and it is completely configurable.
Probation Review Process
PerformanceHub supports many different ways to configure the probation work-flow. For example, whether HR need to sign off the review depending on the type of review (interim or final) and the outcome of the review (Pass/Fail/Extend).
