I think it’s a safe bet that many of you are tuning in to watch the upcoming NCAA basketball tournaments. I think it’s also safe to assume that many of you are placing bets on your favorite team with coworkers, at home, or with friends.

According to an article on, workplace March Madness is true madness, costing US employers $1.8 billion!

However in the same article, it is argued that the energy created via March Madness, may increase work productivity. A company’s vitality may be enhanced from the excitement generated through office-bracket pools.

It’s possible that March Madness creates unity and community within the workplace, as coworkers discuss the games. They are able to contribute their mutual knowledge, which invites a sense of belonging.

On the other hand, there is a reason madness is used to describe March’s event. Perhaps this could become the new ides of March! Who do you think will win?
