This question sounds funny... well yes, of course they can if each one of them gets the PIN/password/usb token/whatever protector you use. No caveat.

If you want better answers, then you're going to need to elaborate.

In short, bitlocker encrypts the device and requires a key to open.  IDEALLY, you use a TPM which stores that key.  Then, anyone in a group that has access to (by default Domain Users) or with a local account can log in to the machine.

Bitlocker prevents me from taking a boot disk and accessing your files if I don't have the recovery key and/or an authorized user.
