March Madness causing expensive distractions at work

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

The fun of watching the NCAA men's basketball tournament is fun for many, but it could take some attention away from your work. 

According to a study done by a consulting firm Challenger, Gray and Christmas, the first two days of the tournament could cost the U.S. hundreds of millions of dollars in lost productivity.

People say when March Madness hits, it's tough to keep all your focus on work. 

"I'm always looking forward to the sport because it only comes around once a year and those first two days of the tournament are very frantic so there's so much going on throughout the entire day that it's so much fun to concentrate on that," said worker Tim Williams.

Despite the loss of millions of dollars, the company says March Madness has a very little if any impact on a company's bottom line
