Workers Make Picks for March Madness

Posted: Updated:

When Louisville beat Michigan in last year's NCAAchampionship game, fans went crazy!!

But back in the office, Sara Sefcovic wasn't smiling. The University of Michigan alum had picked her alma mater to win in the March Madness office pool at her workplace. And this year, she is sticking with her school, hoping Michigan will win it all...and win her the $200 pool. She's among the 19% of workers who have participated in March Madness office pools, according to a new survey from Career Builder.

So who's most likely to enter one of those pools? The poll found it was mostly young adults, managers and workers who make more than six figures.

"I think it's a fun way to be competitive at work..."

Sefcovic says she did a little research to make her picks. But the organizer of the office pool, Roger Sauerhaft, "I just wanted to make sure you fill out this bracket..."

He's also a Michigan fan. He says when it comes to how people make their picks, he's seen it all. "Best uniforms, who has the best name, some people go for their alma mater, some people try to follow algorithms."

And as the games begin to heat up so will the tension inside some offices.
