The First Six Months: Mastering the Role

During the first six months, be clear and consistent about what is expected and how performance is measured so your new employee knows where to focus their efforts.

Ongoing feedback and training will support your new employee in becoming a valued member of your department. Many career employees serve a probationary period during their first six months of employment. If you are unsure about the probationary period for a new career employee, contact Employee Relations. The probationary period should be used to ensure that your new employee is qualified to perform the job and achieve regular status.
