March Madness Productivity
Oh March Madness, it’s definitely most guys favorite time of year. All those brackets, and basketball. It’s a paradise. So, how much time will be wasted exactly?
So, the big dance starts this Thursday and 1 in 3 men will spend an average of 3 hours a day watching the NCAA Tournament. In addition 3 million people will spend between one and three hours watching the tournament.
Not only will people be ignoring their work, they will also be bogging down the internet speed in a major way.
All together, businesses will lose about $134 Million worth of productivity during the first two days of the tournament.
Things begin to settle back down when people come back to work after the first weekend.
