Trial periods for newer joiners have been on hold while discussions about the GmbH 2.0 have been progressing. Now seems like a good time to refresh how we do trials, look at what worked well and what didn’t, and figure out a next version of this that fits with our new chapter.
Throwing this out there to everyone so we can crowdsource improvements:
- What worked/didn’t work in our previous incarnation of trial periods?
- What changes would you like to see? Do you think trials should continue at all?
- Do you think
probation periodis a less confusing name than
trial period(we’ve heard that “trial” is misleading as it evokes a pre-hire period)
- To what extent should this be centralised with/supported by People Ops?
- Who makes the final decision on trial outcome - team leads?
