March Madness Betting in the Office…OH YES!
March Madness is here. What better way to celebrate than with your co-workers? A little friendly competition and potential prizes will make work fun and bring your colleagues closer together. Here are three ideas to spice up office life with your March Madness bets!
Placing Your Bets
There are a few ways to get your office to place bets for March Madness. Online options take care of the tracking and money, making tracking and accountability a breeze. Use free online brackets like CBS Sports or PoolHost. Alternatively, print the brackets from NCAA and have your co-workers fill out the forms. Collect the brackets before the games start and post for all to see.
Bragging rights isn’t the only motivation factor with March Madness (but a good one)! Take bets and have a Grand Prize Winner, or offer prizes to the 2nd and 3rd place winners with a cut from the prize money. Make the prizes unique and fun, like Southern Recipe Small Batch Pineapple Ancho Chile Pork Rinds or a gift card to a popular restaurant! (Although…psst…we can help you out in the kitchen here.)
Celebrate During the Games
Don’t just wait until games are over to celebrate! Have your colleagues decorate their office with their champion’s colors and watch the games during lunch breaks. Bring the party outside of work to the local sports bar or have a potluck at home.
Whatever you do during this month of high stakes, encourage your colleagues to bring their favorite sports game snacks like Small Batch Pork Rinds to fuel the madness.
