If there's one thing you can safely bet on during this time of March Madness, it's that a number of people in your office will be filling out NCAA Basketball Tournament brackets. According to a recent survey conducted by Vault.com, 71.5 percent of respondents admit to taking part in office betting pools while 82 percent state that their co-workers have participated.

The 2011 Office Betting Survey also shows that office betting is on the rise, increasing since the last time Vault.com conducted a similar survey in 2008, when only 58 percent of workers said they had participated in office betting pools and 77 percent knew of co-workers who did the same.
