With so many college hoops games to watch during March Madness, the NCAA gives you the “Boss Button” to help keep you out of trouble at work.
Not everyone can make it to Las Vegas during March Madness. Some of us can sneak away to the local sports bar that has all of the tournament games playing on multiple televisions, but some of us have to settle on watching the First Round action on computer screens at work. The NCAA has graciously provided us with March Madness Live to give us access to all of the games online, and they included a little tool to use if your boss gets close to your desk: The Boss Button.
If you work in a laid back office environment you might get a pass for having the NCAA tourney pulled up on your work computer while your nose is buried in spreadsheets. If the NCAA tournament is NSFW — not suited for work — at your place of business, then the Boss Button could help keep you from getting in trouble.
While the game is playing on your computer, the Boss Button is available at the top of your screen in case of emergencies. When pushed, your computer jumps to a powerpoint presentation on common office best practices. There are slides on office etiquette, stress management, filing complaints with HR and how to help new hires at the New Hire Orientation. All of the slides are themed to the tournament, of course, with clever “scenarios” with an imaginary employee named Derek.
The Boss Button is not only a clever disguise for your college hoops habit, but it’s a not-so-subtly-disguised ad for the page’s sponsor: PlayStation Vue. You’ll learn all about this rivalry with Derek who doesn’t have a PlayStation Vue. But you do. And that makes you better than Derek.
If you’re hoping to catch some of the 2018 NCAA tournament at the office, the March Madness Live streaming site is your best friend, and the Boss Button is your guardian angel.
