College Policies I Introductory Period
When an individual is hired for a new position at the College, the employee will meet with his/her supervisor to review the position description, establish an appropriate work schedule and designate the length of the employee’s initial introductory period. The length of the introductory period for a new employee will be determined and documented at the beginning of a new work assignment. The length of an introductory period may vary depending upon the department and the type of position (usual range: 90 days). An employee’s initial introductory period may be extended by a supervisor for a specified period of time with the approval of the Director of Human Resources.
At the conclusion of the designated introductory period, the employee will meet with his/her supervisor(s) to participate in a performance review. This review provides a valuable opportunity to evaluate the compatibility of the position and the employee. This initial review will include a written performance appraisal. The performance appraisal includes evaluation of the employee’s ability to meet the position requirements, the employee’s assets, job-related goals and objectives, and plans for further training and professional development.
