Question: “Each quarter, I send an e-mail to a committee of approximately 60 members, many of whom are upper /executives. They have a deadline to respond, using voting buttons (so it’s easy for them), and I flag it to remind them a day ahead of time.
“Inevitably, about eight or 10 don’t respond by the deadline, and I send an e-mail asking them to please respond by the end of business that day, reminding them of the reason these messages are being sent.
“I always feel like this separate e-mail is pointing fingers at them, and I don’t want to do that. Because of the size of the committee, I would prefer not to e-mail the entire group with the request to those who haven’t responded.
“Should I address them by blind copy (Bcc field) so no one can see who the e-mail has been sent to? What’s the most professional way to approach this situation?” -- Anonymous
