Fantasy Football - The Cost To Employers

It's almost fall, and football enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting for the college and pros to begin their seasons.

Over the past decade, fantasy football leagues have proliferated - especially since the advent of the internet. More and more people checking player and team stats; proposing trades; and tracking their team performace - and that's OK - unless it's being done at work.

According to Challenger, Gray & Christmas, fantasy football leagues cost U.S. employers about $9.2 billion annually in lost productivity.

It's a simple fix: internet use at work is for business use only. Fantasy Football (and anything else personal, for that matter) can be done from home, on one's own time.
