morale

Did you get the football - err, memo?

It’s the Monday after Super Bowl Sunday, and we’re back at work.

If you’re like a lot of people, you probably got a cup of coffee (as an excuse to talk about the game), checked your e-mail (to find out who won the office pool) and went online (to replay some of your favorite Super Bowl commercials).

The day after the Super Bowl may not be a national holiday, but it’s certainly a day of distraction at many offices.

Perhaps that’s not such a bad thing. When job rating website Glassdoor polled 500 of its users about Super Bowl Monday, about one in five conceded it’s a less productive day than usual.

But on the plus side, about the same amount of people responding to the online poll said morale is usually higher on the day after the Super Bowl. A few even mentioned employee perks, such as free breakfast.
