A new study shows that Americans spend 25½ minutes during their work day on sports activities during the NCAA tournament.

If you spread that across 15 workdays, that totals to about six hours of slacking off.

The study also suggests allowing employees even a few minutes on March Madness can be time well spent because it allows staff to bond with one another and return to work rejuvenated.
