KPIs & Expectations

Ideally, set within first week.

Monthly KPI’s to be set during the probation period to closely monitor performance/attitude and to easily determine if they are a keeper or a leaver.

KPI’s can be pre-discussed with Management if needed or set collectively with new joiner (there is some flexibility allowed for this area in terms of execution). Establish upfront that any salary adjustment after probation is not immediate and automatic.
