Employers Brace Themselves for March Madness

Filed under: General HR Buzz1:08 pm

In the “old days” when the snow began to melt, the birds reappeared, and many Americans became excited about the NCAA basketball tournament, employers might worry that employees would spend too much time discussing the games and the office pool. Well, those days are gone. This year, for the first time, all but one of the 63 games are available online. Many early games are played during business hours. You’re probably thinking… that will mean that a lot of employees will spend too much time watching games and checking score updates. You’d be right. But IT people see an even larger problem. All that watching and use of bandwidth can bring networks down. Many are fighting back and installing filters that block the online coverage. So much for the technology revolution and the added productivity that has come with it.
