Happy, healthy and engaged employees are more productive and less likely to leave, or be off sick. So far, so obvious, but at Anglian Water there is a bigger prize for championing employee wellbeing. Understandably for a company with public health at its core, health and safety is where our wellbeing journey began. In 2005, private medical cover was costing us £2m per year, and was forecast to rise by 10 per cent every year.
According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving Canada, more than 65,000 Canadians are impacted by impaired drivers annually. Everyday, four people are killed and 175 others are injured. Despite those sobering statistics, impaired men and women throughout Nova Scotia continue to make that potentially life-altering decision to get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle.
If you build it, they will come. That phrase from the Kevin Costner movie, Field of Dreams, can be applied to a bold business venture launched less than five years ago by young Blockhouse entrepreneur, Joel Holland. In February, 2016, I wrote a Breaker story about Holland. I chronicled how he had completed university in Calgary and returned home to discover his degree in sports recreation management wasn’t landing him any job offers.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
