Probationary Periods Process Guide for Managers

Probationary Periods

Everything you need to
manage probation reviews

Probation Review

The success of any employee in a new job – whether new hire or existing employee transferring to a new position – depends just as much on the Hiring Manager as the new hire. Due diligence may be done to hire the best candidate, but those first few months on the job are the Hiring Manager's best opportunity to make sure expectations are met and bad habits aren't formed.

The guides and templates in this Kit contain tools and processes to set expectations and evaluate performance during the probationary period. Providing them to your Hiring Managers clearly communicates company expectations when it comes to managing probationary periods, and equips managers to meet them.

What is the Probationary Periods kit?

The HR Toolkit includes 22 ready-to-assemble HR kits. Each kit provides:

  • A mini crash course for this HR topic. Learn more
  • HR processes. Templates in a kit were created as a family of related Microsoft Word & Excel documents that can connect to and reference each other and make sense as a grouping. They can be used to create end-to-end HR processes for your staff,  managers, and HR. Learn more
