Why not just send them an email?  Why do you need to go to the extreme of putting custom software on their machines for the sole purpose of displaying an icon every once in a while?

If you have to tell a group of people that someone has just been hired, send them an email instead.  That way, if they are not logged onto their computer at the time of notification, they'll find out by reading their email.  And, most email clients have some sort of desktop notification of new email arrivals.  So, you'd get the desktop notification without having to write any software/programs that reside on their computer.
