So much office productivity is lost during March Madness basketball season. And it isn’t going away anytime soon. So why not make the best of the situation? Who knows? You might even win it all and get bragging rights for the remainder of the year!
Supervisors should review the company rules with all staff concerning work breaks and use of the internet for non-work related activities. So everyone is clear on what’s acceptable when it comes to March Madness.
Set the example by not getting sidelined from duties. If you complete assignments before talking hoops, team members will likely follow your lead.
Set goals and make sure work activities are scheduled for each day. Having them write down a daily to-do list helps them stay engaged.
Let workers wear their favorite team’s apparel or decorate their work areas to get in the mood.
Think about forming a competition where members can pick their favorites individually or in small groups and winners can rib their work-mates about their success in a friendly way. Your company could even award small prizes to winners.
Make sure workers put away their cell phones. This helps minimize the impulse to keep sneaking a peek for scores, texts from friends or social media updates that can distract them from their activities.
