Use the interest in office pools to build teamwork
Instead of worrying about your employees wasting time at work during March Madness -- embrace it. That's the suggestion from outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas.
CEO John Challenger says companies are always looking to foster teamwork.
"Smart HR executives are always surveying employee engagement at their companies. They're looking to create deeper relationships."
Well, here ya go.
"So here's this handmade opportunity with a pool to bring people together from different departments and let everybody participate."
Challenger says there's no doubt the NCAA tournament will cost productivity. But he says you can turn that to your advantage if you let it build camaraderie.
