There are two things we know for certain about March Madness:
1) It wreaks havoc on workplaces and costs companies millions of dollars in lost productivity.
2) It's a great thing for workplaces and should be embraced as a way to build office morale.
To a "March Madness in the workplace" neophyte, those two points may seem to contradict each other. But to a veteran of the annual college basketball debate, it makes perfect sense.
That's because part of the "madness" each March comes from the widespread opining by company leaders and experts on how workplaces should navigate the NCAA tournament.
