The nomination phase consists of assigning who is to give feedback to whom and in what capacity, whether it is given as a colleague or as a manager.
In Nailted you can configure who gives feedback to whom in two ways:
100% by administrators:
Where the administrators by deactivating the nomination phase are the ones who decide who gives feedback to whom.
💡We recommend that you only do this manually if less than 30 people will participate in the evaluation.
Delegating this work to managers:
Where by activating the nomination phase you delegate this work to managers.
💡If your evaluation will involve more than 30 people we recommend you to activate the nomination phase as it will help you to:
Be more efficient and effective: Managers know a large part of the company, but in many cases it is almost impossible to get to know individually to all the teams. Besides, the time investment will be very high if you need to carry out this process with a large number of people.
It is complicated to know who has to give feedback to whom: Many times we are not aware of whether we are assigning a person to receive feedback only from their "friends" or from those who are not so "friends", so they may not receive objective feedback.
With the nomination phase active, we delegate this task to the managers who will carry out the assignments within their team, in a quick way as there are few people per team, and in a smart way, as the managers know their teams perfectly and who should give feedback to whom so as not to fall into the trend of feedbacks received being not very actionable.
If the nomination phase is active, we will have to take into account whether we have configured the campaign manually, which allows us to write a message to the managers to explain the process, or if the campaign is configured as automatic, in which the communication of the nomination will be done automatically by the platform.
In both cases the system will allow us to select the minimum number of evaluations that a person has to receive and the duration of the process so that the system will automatically send reminders to the managers who have not completed the nominations as the end of the phase approaches.
What happens when the automatic nomination process starts?
As administrators will rely on managers to perform their team nomination process, they will be the ones that start the nomination process in Nailted.
⚠️ This feature is only available in some of our plans.
Having the phase active, if the campaign is manual, administrators can add an additional message to the one set by Nailted, telling the managers how to carry out the process.
In automatic campaigns this message is not sent, as reminders are sent to the people who have to do some task depending on the stage of the person they will give feedback about.
Managers via the link in the notification or by logging in from my.nailted.com will be able to see pending/incomplete nominations marked with an orange dot.
Clicking on the name of the person with the orange dot will bring up a drop-down menu where you can select or type in the name of the person who will provide feedback.
In the drop-down menu that will appear next to the newly selected person's name, decide whether they will give feedback as a manager or as a peer.
Once you have selected the person who will give feedback, the system will give you the option to add more reviewers.
When the manager sets the number of nominations that the administrators have established,they can click on the confirm nominations button so that the administrators can see on their dashboard that this person has already configured their nominations.
In manual campaigns, participants will not be notified until administrators manually start the participation process.
In automatic campaigns, participants will receive an email notification to start their participation once the nomination has been made by the manager.
Administrators will have visibility of the entire process, being able to provide advice if needed to managers.
