It is not compulsory for experienced people In fact it is not desirable to have that clause for expereinced people
I never had this clause in my letters after 8 years Many companies do not incorporate this caluse for Managers and above
I do not advise this clause for Asst Managers and above

I have a different view about it. An employee is new to an organisation even if he is experienced in the same field in other companies. Probation is set not just to teach him the job but to make him comfortable with the new environment and new organizational culture. Even an experienced person may fail to adjust with the culture being followed in an organisation. Therefore, probation is applicable to experienced persons also. You may also note that probation is applicable for an employee who is promoted to a higher level also! That means, if the employee is not performing well in that elevated post, he shall be demoted and brought back to his old position. Some companies do that also. Therefore, probation is not a onetime arrangement.

Probation period is a period of adjusting yourself with the new organization and its culture, it is not only for the comapny to assess your performance it is also for the indivijual to access wether he can really contribute to the organization.
I feel probation period is necessary for all the caders.

As far my experience goes probation period is not compulsary at VP and above. But every company and industry have different norms. I am sure a PSU Banker , joining in any other company will never like probation clause, He might feel offended also. But at that time only a HR person role comes to explain , Like Madhu T.K did in explaining the other side of probation at every position -)

It depends on the company policy. But it is safe to have the probation clause for even experienced staff but for shorter period to ensure the employee-organization or employee-responsibility fit

Probationary period is essential for all the categories because every company has different work culture & different working style it necessary to have probationary period, so that employee could adopt the situation accordingly probation period is not a training period but a period to establish one self that's why if any employee could not adjust himself in a period of 6 month which generally fixed by every company as probationary period if any could not adjust himself or adopt rules & regulations the probation period may be extended for another three month or so. or if any employees perform well in his probation period he gets confirmation before the expiry of probation period that's why probation period is essential.

A probationary period enables a manager/supervisor and a new employee to identify relevant strengths and weaknesses in conduct and work performance and to take any necessary remedial action. It also allows the employer to assess how well the new employee is fitting into the role and the farm and gives them time to review and adapt training for the new employee.
