A 30-, 60- or 90-day plan can be tailored to the industry in which it is used. This is a plan that explains what an employee plans to accomplish within the first 90 days of employment. Examples include plans tailored to a sales, management or technical position.
The plan details the first 90 days of employment in 30-day increments. During the first 30 days, training is the focus. For a sales position, this includes studying the product to be sold.
The second 30 days of the plan still involves training but also includes more hands-on activity. In a management position, learning how other departments work and operate and taking note of product issues are included in the plan.
The last 30 days of this plan should detail how the new employee takes more initiative to prove that they are acclimating well to the position. For a technical position, this includes making an offer to take on special projects and working with management to set up long-term goals.
