Can you please tell me what the protocol will be for employees who are hired on later in the year (Aug - Dec). Will they go through the planning process still or will they wait until the next year to begin before going through the planning stage?

Employees in this situation will serve a standard probationary period (6 months) so will not be required to coincide with the focal points for this review. It would be expected that these employees would go through the same processes as they would if they were undergoing an annual review, it is just that the timing will be different. Following the completion of the probationary review, employees will then begin to be reviewed in accordance with the focal points. This may require the completion of a special evaluation to get them to the focal period, but that will be a one-time event for timing purposes.
