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
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.
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.
