Selection Sunday is right around the corner and college basketball lovers are already getting the itch to fill out those March Madness brackets. And not surprisingly, one of the most common ways to make a prediction is an office pool in the workplace.
Bracket participants will likely invest work time tracking their brackets against colleagues.

Sixty-four percent say they promote team building, and 54 percent say they increase employee engagement.
The survey polled 355 HR professionals from a randomly selected sample of SHRM’s membership.
