Came across this Bloomberg article today about March Madness fueling employees’ productivity:
I tend to agree. If employees bond over office pools and brackets’ success, why should companies cry “foul” if their staff take a timeout to enjoy the madness? Camaraderie is a known morale and productivity-booster, so if participating in the annual pool or watching a few minutes of a game makes coming to work more fun, I say go for it. It’s a win-win!
