FOUR TIPS FROM PHILIPPE WEISS TO KEEP THE MADNESS DISTRACTIONS & MAYHEM TO A MINIMUM:

  • Bosses Shouldn’t Bet – if supervisors engage in a cash pool they and the company may run afoul of gambling laws and, in any case, they erode their ability to manage bracket-crazy employees that cross the line.
  • Brackets and Bagels go together– it is often better to encourage employees to watch games in a designated break-room (and during actual breaks!) as opposed to them simply finding ways to do so on the sly. Designating “Bracket and Bagel” watch areas and setting-out some tempting food also lessens the chance that employees will leave work to catch part of a game in the local bar or restaurant, only to return to your office in an altered state (because their state school just won or lost).
  • Keep it Cash Free: if you are absolutely committed to a March Madness pool, offer prizes of swag adorned with your logo. Transform that college pride into company pride.
  • Keep an Ear Open for Complaints –  ensure that your managers are ready to effectively respond to any complaints of online or face-to-face trash talking (as well as any moral or religious objections to wagering) that may be raised by team members.
