Is there a way to set up certain words with No Break? For example, the name of the company, I don't want to hyphenate but it is. I know I can set up a character style to correct it but I was hoping to set up the word to NEVER break.

Create a character style with only No Break set. In the Paragraph style settings, create a GREP style. Select your character style, but instead of any grep code, type the word(s) in that field.

You can also add the company name in the user dictionary (Edit menu > spelling > user Dictionary). Add the name and insert a tilde before it. More details here: https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/using/spell-checking-language-dictionaries.html and see the “Add words to dictionaries” section

That is great! Can I also add it to a document? I am creating a template for others to use. Can I add it to the file?

Yes, you can add the word to the document dictionary OR merge your user dictionary into the document (under preferences).

 

BTW, note that multiple-word company names won't work in the dictionary.
