Greenhouse Recruiting's offer approval feature provides your organization with greater control over when a specific offer can be extended to a candidate. However, the offer process will change whether or not your organization is using offer approvals.
Offer flow with no offer approval process
If a job doesn't have an offer approval process, once a candidate is moved into the Offer stage, users with the appropriate permissions can immediately perform the following actions:
- Generate offer documents
- Send offer documents to candidates
- Mark candidates as hired
Offer flow with an offer approval process
With an offer approval flow enabled, any newly created offers will need to be approved before the offer can be extended to a candidate. Users configured to be offer approvers will be notified that the new offer is pending approval.
Once the final necessary user approves the offer, the generated offer documents can be sent to the candidate, and the candidate can be marked as Hired.
