March Madness at San Antonio jobs

Monday, March 28th, 2016

Managers are more likely to play in March Madness tournaments at San Antonio jobs than other employees, according to a recent Careerbuilder survey.

Executives, directors and managers (senior management, VPs, directors/managers/supervisors/team leaders) are far more likely to participate in office pools than professional staff and technical employees (professional/technical staff member, entry level/administrative/clerical) – 27 percent vs. 19 percent.

About one in eight U.S. workers (12 percent) said they plan to participate in the March Madness office pool this year; that’s down from the 15 percent who planned to do so in 2015. Twenty percent of U.S workers said they’ve participated in an NCAA Tournament office pool in the past.

Are these kinds of behaviors allowed in the office? More than half of employees (56 percent) do not know whether their company has official policies on gambling in the office.

The following represent the groups of workers most likely to have participated in the March Madness NCAA Basketball Tournament office pool in the past.

Workers in financial services and sales lead all industries/professions in office pool participation.

  • Financial services: 35 percent
  • Sales: 33 percent
  • IT: 26 percent
  • Transportation: 26 percent
  • Manufacturing: 23 percent
  • Leisure and hospitality: 18 percent
  • Health care: 15 percent
  • Retail: 15 percent
