I agree not to stress over it. I also think it's invasive and overreaching. If they want to advertise, they should ask for advertising.

GT has an "Amplify" program where everyone is [lightly] incentivized to post/share company posts on LinkedIn. If GT has it, I assume other companies have similar programs. I could see original/shared ratio being a useful metric. So that is legitimate. However, this is a non-sequitur to a post about diversity. And a CEO of a multi-national business wants everyone globally to drop what they're doing and provide that metric by EOD? I call BS. Just send an estimate. Nothing to stress over yet.

FYI, according to this VP this exercise is to "see how often we are posting/sharing company marketing messages."

I wouldn't like that at all. I've heard it sort of a thing, but I don't think it should be. Realistically, what would happen if you didn't do it thought?

I'm not sure. It crossed my mind to refuse participation altogether.

Partners and future partners, if you made the salary you are currently making annually, and through increasing client fees and gaining efficiencies through technology, nobody worked more than 40 hours a week, would you be ok with that or would you think you are leaving money on the table and would want to get more and increase hours to 45-50? My main question is if we could achieve 40 hour weeks would you be satisfied or will you want to get hours up to what you’re used to?
