How March Madness Can Get You Fired
The Phoenix Business Journal published an article by Shayna Balch entitled “How March Madness Can Get You Fired.”
Since the dawn of time, sporting events and the fanfare that often surrounds them has been a constant distraction among those in the workforce, Shayna wrote.
