Today was a frustrating day... the best plans of mice and men seem to fall flat in view of some circumstances... :( Amazing... I must learn more and more daily... I am really frustrated at myself than anything else. Lord I ask for patience.

The work induction model in most for-profit enterprises follow a pretty much proven cycle of pre-interview, interview(s), selection process, job offer. What follows is generally a probationary period ranging from 3 months to 6 months. After the probationary period the employee is considered “permanent” pending his or her on-going performance. Employment at-will means that an employee can quit or an employer may dismiss an employee depending on the business needs and employee performance. It also means that great employee performance is recognized by good organizations and properly rewarded. The incentive to do well increases creating a fine-tuned organization with outstanding products and services. The strengths of the individual are tapped to serve the needs of the organization – always accompanied by proper rewards such that the employee benefits and the organization benefit – always a win-win. There is no employment for life – it would be too constraining to both employee and employer. All of this works properly within the framework of government rules, regulations, etc. and for the most part works well. Industries become world-class organizations.

The standard public school induction model on the other hand is totally different… As I observe and experience the model in the flesh I will comment in the future.
