A dynamic game model of reputation with incomplete information on cooperation between employees and companies in probation period and formal work stage is established. By using reputation theory of Kreps and Willson, Milgrom and Roberts, the decision-making process of employees in probation period and formal work stage and the reputation incentive effect to employees’ cooperation with companies are also analyzed. At last, two suggestions are given from this study: Firstly, companies should strengthen the probation period management; Secondly, companies should use reputation effect to motivate their employees to cooperate with them in their formal work stage.
