More and more Americans love football.

Employees of financial services firm Ladenburg Thalmann can also watch football on TVs located at their New York office.

Meanwhile, Heineken beer company has turned concerns about labor productivity into a marketing campaign.

However, not all companies are so easy-going.

Consulting firm Challenger Gray & Christmas estimates that if today’s viewership reaches 16 million like the match against Ghana, American companies will not have to pay $390 million in salaries.
