July 15, 2013
John Michel, Ph.D., assistant professor of management in the Sellinger School, says that workplace activities such as shared lottery pools help build strong relationships among employees: "When people come together to play the lottery, it provides a social activity. It allows coworkers to band together as a group playing a game. They choose to come together as a team."
Michel goes onto say, "Whenever you engage in an activity like this with people, even close friends need to have a contract."
