Week in Review - January 30, 2014


As Americans gear up for Super Bowl XLVIII, we’ve gathered some articles below to help you prepare for the big game and to consider the game’s potential impact on the workplace. You can read below about how one employee's team pride led to him being fired and about how big Super Bowl parties on Sunday night might lead to low workplace productivity on Monday.
