It is important to enjoy your job. Everyone knows that. But what actually makes people enjoy what they do? According to Financial News’s poll of 335 City workers, some of the most obvious workplace incentives do not have a very strong link with job satisfaction levels. Here we chart the factors that are — and are not — related to happiness in jobs.
Efforts by many large institutions in recent years to ensure their employees do not feel pressured into spending unnecessary time in the office have made little difference, according to FN’s Job Satisfaction Survey. In fact, the poll of 335 financial services executives found readers feel the problem has barely been addressed at all. The number of hours worked remains high, with 70% working more than 40 hours per week and almost a third working more than 50 hours a week....
After the Brexit vote, Manu*, a Spanish employee of a large custodian bank in London, said he wanted to leave London and go back to his native Spain. But 18 months on, his feelings have mellowed and he now feels more optimistic about post Brexit life in the City. “When it happened, I woke up and I put the TV on and I was angry and thought ‘that is it, I will leave because I don’t feel welcome in the UK’,” he said.
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".
