Fantasy Football Strikes Again!
While fantasy football could cost employers over $8B in lost productivity (based loosely on government employment data, average hourly pay, and number of fantasy players), fret not. The workplace more than benefits from the boost in morale as co-workers discuss trades, injured players, and heroic plays.
From John Challenger, CEO:
“Companies that not only allow workers to enjoy fantasy football, but actually encourage it by organizing a company leagues are likely to see significant benefits in morale, which, in turn leads to an overall boost in productivity as well as employee retention,” said Challenger.
