Employee engagement has been a top HR trend for years now. We know it’s important and we all want to increase our engagement levels, but…how? It’s notoriously difficult to raise and maintain high levels of employee engagement and beyond that, proving to your own boss why it’s so important can be hard. So here are five ways to think about the problem differently. It’s a new year, so maybe it’s time for some new thinking.
Call Me By Your Name is a beautifully crafted film about a sweet summer romance between an adult and a teen. That fact colours everything else about the film: its gorgeous cinematography; how much character work the costuming does; a soundtrack that is as powerful in its moments of silence as it is in its most joyfully loud ones; and several subtle, complicated performances. The romantic coming-of-age drama is set in an aging villa just outside a sleepy Italian town, in 1983.
Nothing and nobody is bias-free. Thanks to human psychology, there are two existing types of bias involved (almost) every time in the workplace. These biases are either conscious or unconscious: they can become troublesome in the work settings. But once the issue is acknowledged, we can try to escape it. Thankfully, in an era where we are (still) fighting for diversity, we are now raising awareness on the issue.
I’d like to see actors not make a calculated decision to work Allen (a man who has been investigated for abuse, married his stepdaughter, and fetishizes teens in his films) and then donate the proceeds after suddenly discovering these well known facts.
That’d be nice.
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".
