TUCSON - A lot of office workers are expected fill out a bracket. In fact, more than 50 million people in offices across the U.S. are expected to fill one out.
One by one NCAA fans at Long Realty Company in Tucson are filling out their brackets. Out of its 120 employees about 2/3 of its workers fill out a bracket, many picking Arizona to go all the way.
According to Andrew Challenger of Challenger, Gray, and Christmas, an outplacement firm out of Chicago, says with employees filling out brackets and watching the games companies stand to lose big bucks.
"Companies stand to lose about 1.2 billion dollars for every unproductive work hour in the first week of the tournament." said Andrew Challenger.
Clifton Smith at Long Realty says while they have fun with the brackets, it does not have an effect on their work productivity.
