Probationary Periods

We can help devise your induction programme to satisfy your legal obligations and lay foundations so that new recruits start as you mean them to go on. Effective probationary periods ensure you maximise your investment in the appointment process and that your new employee is given the best possible start to succeed. Probationary Periods are detailed in the contract of employment. The length of the Probationary Period will be dependent on the job and role in terms of the complexity and the position. We can help you design induction training and provide appropriate probationary review documentation.

Staff Appraisals

Appraisals are a key tool to help you identify an individual's performance. This is a two way process that formally records an employee's performance over a set period, usually 6 months or a year. This is an ideal time to look at development needs and future potential as well as current strengths and weaknesses.

In addition to creating tailor made procedures for your business, we can also provide training for managers and staff to ensure everyone gets the most benefit from the appraisal system.
