We all get excited about March Madness -- the games, the brackets, the bets. But having so many games going on during the middle of the workday means some of your employees will inevitably sneak a peek at the scores.
Instead of worrying about a potential loss of productivity as the Sweet Sixteen nears, why not harness that excitement to enhance the organizational culture of your company?
Sure, there's a lot of hype surrounding the NCAA Basketball Tournament, but that just means your employees are more likely to appreciate the opportunity to relax -- at least for a few minutes -- without completely disrupting the workday.
TINYhr, a human resources company dedicated to improving employee engagement, suggested a few ways to use March Madness to your advantage. HCSS also utilizes some of these strategies in our own Sugar Land, Texas, headquarters.
