When your employees spend most of their time at work, it makes sense that in-house romances can occur. According to data from job search platform Comparably, 34 percent of men and 35 percent of women report they have dated a co-worker. Workplace romances can lead to long-lasting relationships, sometimes even marriage. However, workplace romances can result in uncomfortable situations for the people involved in the relationship if things go sour, as well as for their co-workers.
While it’s not glamorous, Coaches Development Hour at CrossFit Roots is essential. The gym in Boulder, Colorado, has been doing an internal development hour for six years, said Nicole Christensen, the owner of the Box. On every first and third Monday of the month, the entire team gathers at 1:30 p.m. “We’d meet for one hour and we’d work on any element that contributed to the health of the gym or bettering ourselves as Coaches,” she said. Christensen said it’s been a lot of small efforts over time.
You can ask anyone in the office — I am not a morning person. My brain just doesn’t quite turn on until I’ve been awake for a couple of hours; then it’s like a switch has flipped and I’m rearing to go. I don’t always like this aspect of myself, but I’ve learned I need to accept it and simply change how I respond to people. There’s a way to be tired and polite, just as there’s a way to be tired and cranky. I usually resort to the latter.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
