We post a new position online about once a week. Is sending an email organization-wide every time a job is posted too much? Why?
This is in the US, and our org. is a private university. I'm in the HR office.
Background: A part of recruiting employees at a university is fulfilling an affirmative action and disability recruitment duty to try to recruit from minority/disability groups or organizations.
Our senior leadership is considering that since we employ minorities and people who know minorities, sending our job postings to everyone would satisfy this requirement. So, they are considering sending a company-wide email from our official email address when jobs post and creating an announcement on our intranet page (we use Drupal).
Commentary: I feel like it will be an oversaturation and our actual important messages will be lost, or our actual important announcements will be buried. If I'm concerned over nothing though, I would also like to know.
