Packer Chatter Impacts Productivity

The amount of time Wisconsin workers spend chatting about the Packers while on the job is costing employers millions of dollars.  Chances are just about every interaction you have at work today will include some mention of Sunday’s NFC Championship Game at Lambeau Field.  The Milwaukee “Journal Sentinel” reports that if every worker in the state spent a total of one hour of their work week chatting about the Packers, the state would lose 40-million-dollars in worker productivity.  However, experts advise employers to encourage the camaraderie, rather than try to rein it in.  They say the Packers have given Wisconsin employers a rare occasion for rallying workers around a common cause.
