When you hire an employee, it's a good idea to include a probationary period to make sure it's a good match 😍
If it turns out that your new employee has lied/exaggerated some qualifications or responsibilities and you find they are not up to the job, the probation period protects you from being left with an underperforming or unsatisfactory member of staff.
If it's going If it turns out that the person you’ve employed fails to meet expectations and you deem them unsuitable for the role, then the trial period gives you a safety net and allows you to terminate their employment within the framework of probation, with more ease (for a fair reason).
A probation period is essentially a trial period for a new employee, to see if it's a good match. They are usually around 3 to 6 months.
👉 If you're new employee is amazing, you should write to them to confirm they has passed their probation 🥂
👉 But if your employee is not performing satisfactorily, you have two choices. To either end their employment (if things are really bad) or to extend the probation period, to give them more time to improve. Either way, you should aim to give them the feedback and time to achieve the required improvement, with adequate support and training. It should never come as a complete shock (that's not very nice).
