I am sending emails to employees in our company and I want to be able to force the employees to send me a read receipt notification when they read the email. Is there a way to do that?

You can request a read receipt - but the recipient gets to choose if they send one or not.  You can't control the choice at their end, so short answer is no.

If the users are in your domain, you can probably use group policy to force Outlook have the read receipt option on.
