Is "Employer of Choice" the Wrong Answer to the Right Question?

The First 63 Are Free - CBS Offers Equivalent of Crack Pipe to US Productivity....

In 2008, American businesses lost an estimated $1.2 billion in worker productivity during the NCAA tournament, mostly during its first two days.

That's a lot.  But you ain't seen nothing yet.  This year, CBS is streaming video for every game - Free....!Dick_vitale

It starts this Thursday.  Your employees, with the best of intentions, are strolling along, and BAM!!! They're hit with this offer:

"NCAA March Madness® on Demand allows you to watch LIVE game broadcasts of CBS Sports television coverage of the NCAA Championship on your computer for FREE!

This year, for the first time ever, you'll be able to watch every game* of the NCAA Championship live online for free. All 63 games, from the First Round through the Final Four including the Championship Game, will be available with NCAA March Madness on Demand — so you'll never have to miss a single shot.

  • NCAA March Madness on Demand is 100% free
  • Live games streaming on your broadband-connected computer
  • Enjoy Championship highlights, recaps, and archived video
  • 640x360 widescreen video player
  • Exclusive halftime show
  • Includes The NCAA Basketball Championship Selection Show
  • Can't watch? Listen to live streaming audio from Westwood One's radio broadcasts of every game."

    You'll need two methodone clinics and a multi-port EAP line to get productivity back to where it belongs. 

    Actually, the hit to productivity is probably overstated.  Whatever happended to shared experiences causing higher level of engagment?

    PS - I've got Kansas.  Or UCLA....

    Don't forget the Boss Button and if your boss tells you what's that sound, say you're listening to an HR podcast.

    BTW, I got North Carolina or Memphis.

    I agree and disagree.
