HasBean: Morning! You’ve been here a month now, how are things going?
Charles: Well, I now have my own security pass, a laptop, and my user account and email were finally set up this morning.
Charles: So now I want to baseline my skills and create a prioritised development plan, so I know the priority tasks you need me to focus on.
HasBean: We normally discuss all that stuff at the end of year appraisal.
Charles: So, you mean no gap analysis, skills development or training in year 1?
HasBean: Right now, I need your help sorting out this backlog that seems to have built up over the last few weeks.
