Joe Sherwood, HCM Researcher focuses on how organizations can ensure company-wide support for continuous performance management systems
The time-honored concepts of annual talent cycles, annual reviews and leadership driven from the top down do not fully serve the reality of today’s workforce and business. Rather than improving engagement, motivation and retention, these traditional practices often create busywork and discord.
Lubbock, TX - Auggie enters the fifth grade: his first time in a public school, or any school. His deformities make him the subject of mockery and insensitive jokes, but the little guy faces up to his truth and will help you find yours. Granted, his parents are Owen Wilson and Julia Roberts, but 9-year-old Jacob Tremblay will play his way into our news-hardened hearts. "You can't blend in when you were born to stand out." It's rated PG and runs almost two hours.
Stressed out at work? You're not alone. Research shows that roughly 70% of Americans name work as being a major cause of stress, with 40% reporting feeling tense and stressed out during a typical workday. One study of more than 46,000 U.S employees showed that health care costs were 46% higher for stressed-out workers. Research has identified several sources of employee stress. Understanding what they are is the first step to avoiding them or designing work practices to reduce their influence.
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".
