Probationary Periods for New Hires or Transferring Employees

A probationary period of 90 days for new hires and those transferred to new positions is a helpful way to make certain that the orientation process and the staff member’s work performance are in alignment with the goals and objectives of the department and the College. This allows for frequent communication and feedback to the employee by his or her supervisor/team leader and is intended to create opportunities for the discussion of actual work performance, the transition to the College campus environment and the identification of both short and long term goals.
