March Madness At Work

With March Madness set to tip off on the 15th, it’s important to know how to keep track of those day games while at work.With so many games going on (especially in the first couple of rounds) it’s easy to become distracted on the job. You also may run the risk of getting in trouble with your boss.

In a recent survey according to the PRNewswire, 32 percent of managers said they discourage employees from following the games at work and participating in March Madness office pools.

So if you’re going to do it, consider these helpful tips:

  1. Before checking scores online and taking part in office pools, be sure to review your company’s policies to know what’s acceptable.
  1. Discuss the tournament on breaks and not while you’re supposed to be working.
  1. Consider taking a day off to enjoy the games at home. But put in for the day far enough in advance because others may want to do the same thing.
  1. If you plan to decorate your work area to support your favorite team, be sure to check with company policy.
  1. Show proper sportsmanship in the office and don’t get into any arguments with fans of other teams.
