Title: Don’t Get Fired! Thrive in Your Probationary Period

Greetings everyone! Welcome to my channel. Thanks for joining me for another video. You know that I’m on a mission to help you live your best career life and I’m doing so one video at a time. So, if you like the information that I bring to you, click the “thumbs-up” to let YouTube know that you want more information like this to come your way. Also, please share my videos with others who want to level up their career life. Finally, I would love for you to subscribe so that you get notified each time I release a new video.

Introduction:

Probationary, Provisional, Introductory, Orientation, Training, Initiation period, etc. They all refer to the first months to 1 year trial period after you start your new job. It's that crucial phase that determines your future with the company. It’s because you and your new employer use that time to decide if the two of you are a good fit for each other. While probationary periods vary in length of time and specific requirements, the goal remains the same for you, the employee: to secure your position and transition into a permanent role. If there’s such a thing these days.

We all know that starting a new job can be an exciting and nerve-wracking experience all at once. A while back, I did a video on three reasons why employees get fired during their probationary period. So, this video is a follow-up of sorts to that one, but I’m turning the tables today and sharing some proactive steps that you can take to increase your chances of achieving a successful probationary period with your employer.

Understand Your New Employer’s Probationary Period Strategy and Develop Your Own:

Most people still consider the probationary period as the initial months of the employer:employee relationship when employers evaluate new employees. The reality is that it is also the time for employees to evaluate their new employer. So below, I am sharing with you the ways that your new employer will assess your fit for the company. I am also sharing with you the corresponding strategy that you, as the new employee, should implement to successfully navigate the probationary period.

  1. Know that the first starting point of your new employer’s strategy is to assess if you have the necessary skills, knowledge, and cultural fit to be successful as an employee of the organization.

So, as the “new kid on the block,” you should ask your manager for a copy of your job description on your first day of work. Also, ask your manager how they define success on the job.

Take advantage of professional development opportunities offered by the company. Whether it's attending training sessions, workshops, or industry conferences, investing in your professional development demonstrates your commitment to continuous learning and growth. Even if your company’s budget is limited, take advantage of free and low-cost online personal and professional development opportunities through sites like Udemy, Teachable, Coursera, and others.

Exercise resilience, especially in the face of challenges or setbacks. Demonstrating resilience in overcoming obstacles showcases your ability to adapt and thrive in the face of a changing work environment.

Maintain a positive attitude and do not participate in workplace gossip. Your ability to maintain a high level of professionalism in your conduct, interactions, and work ethic will reflect positively on your character and commitment to the role.

Do your best to complete your assignments as requested and in a timely manner. If you can’t meet a deadline, ask your manager for a deadline extension.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions when you are not sure how to complete an assignment. Also, ask for a copy of your company’s employee handbook and read it from front to back to familiarize yourself with the company’s policies. Finally ask for a copy of the standard operating procedures for your position and department and follow them 100% when doing your work.

If you are ever unsure about a task, policy, or expectation, seek clarification from your manager or an authorized co-worker for guidance or clarification. It's better to ask questions and seek clarity than to make assumptions that could lead to mistakes or a misunderstanding that could jeopardize your employment.

  1. During the probationary period, your employer will expect you to demonstrate your job-related abilities and meet performance expectations outlined in their job descriptions.

This is why it is so important for you to ask for a copy of your job description. It will contain the exact duties that you will be expected to perform. It is also crucial that you know how your manager will determine your success on the job. So, ask him/her how they determine on-the-job success.

During your probationary period, read your job description as a part of your getting ready for work each day during your probationary period. Think about your performance on the last day that you worked and honestly think how good of a job you did. Identify areas where you may need to improve. Think of ways that you can do a better job and implement those improvements into your work performance the next time you work. Also be ready and willing to take on additional responsibilities when appropriate. This will help you to get better at your job faster.

Your initiative and proactive approach to your work will shine through and be noticed by your superiors. Showing initiative highlights your enthusiasm and commitment to contributing to the organization's success.

Demonstrate adaptability and flexibility in response to changing circumstances or feedback and remain open to mentorship and feedback. You can learn a lot from those who have been doing the job longer. You can also learn from younger or less-experienced workers who might have free ideas about better ways to get the work done. So, also be open to learning new skills, adjusting your approach, and embracing changes within the organization.

If you ever feel that you need additional tools and resources to perform your job well, let your manager know.

  1. The probationary period allows both parties to adjust to the working relationship.

Familiarize yourself with company policies, procedures, and expectations.

Keep the lines of communication open between you and your manager. Let him/her know that you want to do a great job. Ask him/her for feedback on ways that you can do your job better. Use their feedback to think of any changes that you need to make in the way you work to meet performance expectations.

A little after the half-way mark into your probationary period, ask your manager for a copy of the performance evaluation document that they will use to rate your performance when your probationary period ends. Then do a self evaluation of your performance. Make sure to include ratings for all of your key duties. Also rate yourself on how well you follow directions, communicate, exhibit leadership qualities, interact with co-workers, and produce high-quality work. Share your completed self evaluation with your manager and ask them if your self evaluation matches their rating of your performance. And, ask if the two of you can meet to discuss where there are differences.

  1. Your employer knows the labor laws in your area and they will apply them when necessary. In some jurisdictions, labor laws may provide protections for both employers and employees during the probationary period.

Know your state’s or local area’s labor laws. Research if your state is governed by “at-will'' employment laws. Or, if your industry is unionized. Remember also to research workers compensation laws in your job market. It is very unfortunate, but employee’s often do not know the details of their rights and responsibilities in their state. Often, it is only when/if an incident occurs that they then do their research. Unfortunately, it may be too little, too late.

I can all but guarantee you that you will be the first new employee to have followed this strategy. You will gain even more of your manager’s respect and their confidence in your abilities. They will also be so impressed that they will likely be speechless.

IN CONCLUSION:

Navigating the probationary period requires a proactive approach and a focus on demonstrating value to the organization. So, increase your chances of success, by avoiding the common pitfalls such as reporting to work late, excessive absenteeism, inappropriate workplace behavior:

Keep track of your achievements, milestones, and contributions during your probationary period and beyond. Documenting your successes provides tangible evidence of your value to the organization and can support your case for permanent employment.

Thank you once again for joining me on my mission to help you live your best career life. Remember to like, share and subscribe and I look forward to seeing you for the next video. If you want to see the video on why employees get fired during their probationary period, I’ve linked it right here.

DEI is a hot buzzword in the HR and recruiting world. Employers are writing diversity statements and advertising their commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace. Why? Because they believe DEI is important to applicants and they want to attract more of them.

So how important is it to you? Do you look for diversity statements when applying for jobs? Do you investigate a company's commitment to DEI before applying? Why is it important or not important to you?

I'm transitioning my career from banking to project coordinator or management. I look for DEI not just in words but in action. I want to see DEI in positions, in culture and in people. Co-vid taught me a few things, one being, action is everything.

Diversity in the workplace

Diversity encompasses the range of similarities and differences each individual brings to the workplace, including but not limited to national origin, language, race, color, disability, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, veteran status, and family structures.

I feel that a lot of companies are getting better at hiring different ethnic groups 👩🏽‍🦰👱🏾👩🏽‍🦳👩🧔🏿‍♂️👴🏻👨🏼‍🦱🧔🏼‍♀️ Inclusion is something that companies are focusing on, encouraging employees to unite which is awesome 🤩

How important do you think diversity is in the workplace? Please share you thoughts 💭 below! #Diversity #Inclusion #Workplace

I love talking about neuro-diversity! Why? It's a super power! Did you know that the Neuro-Diverse community makes up over 40% of the population!? Neurodiversity includes any person whose brain processes information or stimuli differently (I say better). While the term focuses primarily on differences such as ADHD, Autism, TS, and Dyslexia, it can also refer to people with Anxiety, Bipolar, or many other variations. So many people in leadership and hiring shy away from this group, and let me tell you, that is an EPIC mistake! These folks bring a variety of talents and unique perspective that lead to innovation, creativity, and ultimately, higher profits. Take Mervyn Kennedy-MacFoy for instance. Mervyn has been my primary advisor on Titan ATS and designed one of our key features. His unique way of gathering and presenting information lead us down a remarkable rabbit hole that helped land us in #WebSummit2021! Then there is Dan Roth who during COVID, without any experience in recruiting or strong LinkedIn experience, created a Job Connection series and postings that landed hundreds jobs and solid connections! Then, of course, you have yours truly, and I can do pretty much anything, especially in Talent Acquisition, so every company should be trying to hire me. ;) DIFFERENT DOES NOT EQUAL BAD. In fact, in hiring, different equals terrific! So, when you are out there trying to find candidates, make sure that your application process is neuro-diverse friendly. ** Short Processes ** Be Specific ** No Video Submittals And most importantly, when hiring, LOOK FOR DIFFERENT!

(Reach out to me for more information and tips, or tips on getting hired as a neuro-diverse person.)
