...Advantages of Using Session Musicians on Your Song Demo Photo By Cliff Goldmacher Why do professional recordings sound, well . . . professional? There are a number of reasons, including high quality microphones, pre-amps, an experienced engineer and a well-designed studio space. But one of the single most important elements in a great-sounding, professional recording is the performance of the session musicians. There is a reason that the job of the session musician exists. It’s these musicians whose talent and studio experience contribute in a major way to the polished sound of a recording. Because there are different rules that apply when you’re recording an artist demo, I’m going to limit the scope of this article specifically to songwriting demos. ​ Shouldn’t I Be Able To Do This Myself? While I am a big proponent of wearing as many hats as you can in your musical career, there are certain areas where it makes much better sense to rely on experts. First of all, it’s extremely important that you take ego out of the equation. There is no shame in having someone else play on your demo. Remember that a songwriting demo is supposed to put your song in the best possible light in order to “sell” it to prospective artists or place it in films and TV shows; it is not supposed to be proof of your studio musicianship. Recording your instrument in the studio requires an entirely different skill set than playing live. For lack of a better description, studio recording is more......

Amanda Dingli Student number: 284483 Unit number 3RAI Recording, analysing and using HR information Lecturer - Amanda Williams 2nd February 2015 Activity 1. The aim of this briefing note is to review the organisation’s approach to collecting, storing and using HR data. Two reasons why Outlook Expeditions needs to collect HR data are: * To ensure compliance with legal requirements by keeping employees personal and employment details recorded and kept up to date and stored for a specified number of years. * To ensure that decisions relating to redundancies, training and recruitment of staff can be made based upon the information that is held on file. Two types of data that are collected within Outlook Expeditions are: * Information relating to absences which helps managers to monitor the number and type of absences each employee takes using the Bradford Factor guidelines and implements any action that is necessary. * Employment details, contract terms, pay and hours. This ensures that all employees have the minimum legal requirements in line with the National Minimum Wage Act 1998. Two methods of storing information are: Electronic files Each employee has an individual electronic file which is saved on a network drive and backed up each evening. The backup is essential as it reduces the potential for permanent loss of data files. The benefit of storing the data this way is that there is instant......

...LO1 Q3. What is the difference between academic, professional, industry and company information? To make a research we can collect different kind of sources, based on primary and secondary data. The difference between them is that the primary sources are often original data collected through "instruments" such as surveys, interviews, questionnaires, "focus groups," etc. Secondary sources on the other hand, provide an overview of existing published knowledge on a specific topic, they are very useful in providing contextual backgrounds. Secondary sources can be articles in newspapers or popular magazines, books or academic journals. In fact there are different type of secondary sources: academic, professional, industry and company information. Academic: is very useful to add authoritativeness to a research because it is a source which has passed through “peer review” process, this means that the source has been read by experts prior the approval for the publication. Academic Journals, textbooks, and research papers are all example of academic information. Professional Bodies: are organisations formed by professionals in a specific field. Besides providing support for professional development, they also publish professional journals and therefore provide a variety of information on best practice and guidelines. CIPD for example, is a professional body that publish different kind of research and makes available to its members information such as reports or surveys....

Recording, Analysing and Using Human Resources Information

...This report will review an organisations approach to collecting, storing and using HR data. It covers the reasons why an organisations needs to collect HR data, types of data it collects and how it supports HR, different methods of storing information and their benefit and UK legislation relating to the recording, storage and access to HR data. 1.1. Reasons why organisations collect, store and record data There are many reasons why organisations need to collect data, from ensuring legal requirements are met, providing relevant information in decision making and planning and for health and safety purposes and so on. Data needed to support the organisation’s planning and decision making, is done at 3 levels; strategic, tactical and operational. Strategic information is used at the very top level of management and it is this level that is responsible for all legal requirements such as tax issues and payroll (Martin and Jackson 2005) Tactical information is used by middle management and they use the information gathered from the Operational level to produce reports on performance, absence by department and so on. The lowest level of management or workers implements operational plans and it is this level that collects the data which is used to make information for the strategic and tactical levels such as personal contact details and absence. 1.2. Two types of data collected and how they support HR Practices Data refers to raw or unprocessed facts or observations which......

...done presently to nurture talent and progression. For the purpose of this study data collection will be gathered using a mixed multiple methods approach. (Kumar, 2014) discusses the advantages of using this approach, primarily that in order to find meaning and accuracy more than one method should be used. Therefore this study will use both paradigms of qualitative and quantitative data. “As both qualitative and quantitative approaches have their strengths and weaknesses, advantages and disadvantages neither one is markedly superior to the other in all respects” (Ackroyd & Hughes, 1992, p.30). As this study has multiple objectives the mixed methods approach appears to be the most advantageous. Data collection will start by following the qualitative approach. Bryman and Bell (2007) explain that Qualitative data is about words and the meaning of these words. One method that will be used will be to conduct interviews with both Heads of Departments in Construction and the lecturers within the department. A Sample will be taken from 3 Colleges within the area. The advantages of using this method are the richness of the data and the relevance, in that it has the potential to answer and confirm the hypothesis. Qualitative data is also representative as it will be derived from the sample of individuals in which this paper is interested in. The disadvantages of using this method is the time factor, transcribing interviews is labour intensive and could take longer to analyse.......

...data. 1.1 Explain why an organisation needs to collect and record HR data Organisations need data as a point of reference or to be able to retrieve information whenever it is needed. Every organisation should keep accurate records and information on their employees in order to be able to use this information for planning ahead for the business. Organisations also need data as a legal requirement. HR data collection enables an organisation to measure against it supporting workforce planning, monitoring progress and development, developing initiatives for generic cases. It identifies and analyses information to aid the organisation in making ultimate decisions both beneficial to the organisation and its employees. 1) Comply with legislative and regulatory requirements regarding equal opportunities, equal pay audits, recruitment, assessing skills balance, absence recording. 2) Monitor training and performance for employees, assessing each individual employee for productivity and identifying training needs. That means assessing the productivity within the business. Being well informed about the workforce is the key to aim the ultimate goal of the organisation. Data collection enables the management team to make informed decisions about future activity. 1.2 Identify the range of HR data that organisations collect and how this supports HR practice Collecting and analysing data can support HR practices to meet the goals and objectives of the......

Using Social Networking Sites for Hr Decisions

...Authorship: This paper was prepared by me for this specific course and is not a result of plagiarism or self-plagiarism. I have cited all sources from which I used data, ideas, or words either quoted or paraphrased. Signature _________________________________ Article Summary 1: Using Social Networking Sites for HR Decisions Webster University HRMG-5000 Spring 1 2015 January 19, 2015 The invention and popularity of the internet has created a whole new way for organizations to recruit quality employees. “Many people initially use social media more than job board sites to look for a job” (Mathis, Jackson, & Valentine, 2014, p. 195). This allows those searching for jobs the ability to look at more potential jobs in a shorter amount of time from the comfort of their home. Social networking through the internet allows human resources professionals to reach a greater number of prospective job candidates in almost real time. Many companies are beginning to use technology to their advantage in looking for, identifying and attracting talented job candidates (Mathis, Jackson, & Valentine, 2014). Just as social networking can benefit both job candidate and organization, there is also another side to using social networking from a human resources point of view. The article gives the scenario of an employee who works for ABC Company and is forced to work late one day. The employee sends out a “tweet” from his Twitter account that indicates how much he hates his job,......

Purpose 2. Background 3. Current Status 4. Key Considerations 5. Options 6. Conclusions and Recommendations Activity 1 1. Purpose The purpose of this briefing is to inform the Director about a review of Brenikov’s approach to collecting, storing and using HR data. 2. Background The review was requested by the HR Director joining Brenikovs to ensure that it’s compliant with The Data Protection Act 1998 and The Freedom of Information Act 2000, the two main pieces of UK legislation covering the collecting, storage and use of data in the UK. 3. Current Status Currently the Freedom of Information Act does not apply to Brenikovs as it’s not publicly funded. Brenikov Training does need to ensure compliance with The Data Protection Act as it currently collects HR Data to assist with strategic planning and to ensure compliance with legislation (Rights to Work). Brenikovs currently collects and analyses data on employee absence to identify any trends and allow the HR team to actively put in place working practices to minimise disruption. It also collects data on DBS checks as part of the recruitment procedures to ensure compliance with safeguarding and child protection legislation. 4.

Using Hr Information

...Unit 3 Assessment: Using HR Information Part 1 In a synopsis of no more than 500 words explain: • Why an organization needs to collect and record HR data.  You should give at least two reasons. (AC1.1) • Legal requirements relating to the recording, storage and accessibility of HR data. (AC2.2) Previously, organizations tend to depend on the cultural cliché that Human Resources is merely a department or subdivision. Although it does acknowledge that it deals with people; this dealing tends to be difficult. During these times, this is no longer the attitude. Most companies have established HR solutions and systems that help in meeting the organizational goals and aide in making informed decisions. First of all, part of the whole HR plan is being able to identify the ultimate goal of the organization. From the perspective of Human Resources, the most essential factor to be considered in this regard is the organization’s work force; hence, the collection and recording of employee personal data, leaves and absences, salary information and the likes. HR data collection is imperative to be able to establish a point of reference for the company to be able to measure against it (i.e. employee salary details, salary bell curve he falls in to assess salary review and increments); monitor progress and development (history of performance appraisals and assessment; SMART objectives to be able to consistently conduct accurate performance review periodically);......
