Office betting 'madness' goes way beyond sportsJun 5, 12:26 pm
Washington, June 5 (ANI): That people bet on sports at work is no secret, but a new poll has revealed that they are also betting on a whole lot of other things.According to a new CareerBuilder survey, employees have admitted to making all manner of work-related wagers, including: Who would be the first person to drink too much at a company party, or when would someone punch out the supervisor and even bet on how long the CEO's fourth marriage would last. The employees confessed to betting on who in the office would be the last to get their power back after a big snowstorm, the fake illness with which a co-worker would call in sick apart from how long would it take for someone to quit and who would grow the best beard in one month's time, Live Science reported. They also bet on other things like how many accidents would occur at the intersection outside of the office building, when impending litigation would be filed against the company and even topics like the amount of news coverage a particular celebrity would receive in a week.The information in the CareerBuilder poll was based on a survey conducted by Harris Interactive.The survey based its results on the responses of more than 7,700 workers.
